A New Star Has Joined the OSL Universe

A New Star Has Joined the OSL Universe

OSL is delighted to introduce Wendy Beales, who has taken up the new role of Cost Engineer.

Resourcing Manager, Sarah Taylor, introduced herself to Wendy over LinkedIn and set up an interview. Following our in-depth recruitment process, Wendy has now joined us at OSL House, based on the same floor as our Senior Management Team.

Originally from Norfolk, Wendy has worked across the UK and around the world. Her career has seen the delivery of work in Australia, Holland and Nigeria. The latter was a very rewarding experience, with the specialist helping people to develop their employability skills for the global market. This included a trainee who had never before visited the UK moving to Aberdeen; the two remain in touch to this day.

“I love getting to know people and learning about different cultures,” says Wendy. “I’ve always stuck my hand in the air and volunteered for foreign placements, but it’s nice to be back in the Humber region and I’m relishing my new role.”

Despite only starting this month, Wendy is already busy providing cost reports to clients, supporting a range of projects and working closely with Project Delivery Manager, Mark Boden.

“OSL has a very refreshing approach to recruitment and daily operations,” adds Wendy. “Sarah Taylor is so proactive and my interview involved me meeting a lot of people I’ll be working with, not just line managers. There’s a very nice personal touch that benefits everyone and allows the company to give clients the service they want and deserve.”

Wendy lives in a village in East Yorkshire, which is within an easy drive of OSL House. In her spare time she enjoys astronomy and takes advantage of her neighbourhood’s open skies and low levels of light pollution. A huge supporter of Ipswich Town, she also fits in home games whenever possible. As for family, Wendy always finds time to visit them in Norfolk, Suffolk and Teesside, which offers the opportunity to take in the UK’s attractive countryside views and starry evenings.

With over twenty years’ experience in cost engineering, we’re confident that Wendy will prove a valuable asset to the company. Having welcomed her to the OSL family, it’s fantastic to see her diving into her responsibilities with true dedication and a commitment to our philosophy of Clever Thinking.
