|Divisional Manager (Highways & Engineering)|
Back to Staff Profiles
"Oldham has traditionally had a strong Highways & Engineering team, successfully managing capital projects well above the value of similar local authorities. However, going back two years, I felt we needed a new way forward and that coincided with Oldham’s (Council) decision to look into a joint venture with the private sector."
"Since moving to Unity we have reorganised the office with a physical change for the better, and brought back together the Design & Construction team within Highways. The new systems we have in place, while at times have been challenging, are now helpful in managing time and costs."
"Having a settled team, with a diverse mix of council, Unity and recent appointments, we are again beginning to see significant engineering projects on the horizon and I am positive about the move into Unity."
A chartered civil engineer, Gordon manages a team of 10 and previously worked for Oldham Council for 15 years, joining as a graduate engineer before transferring to Unity in May 2007.
