International Women's Day 2021

Choose to Challenge, IWD2021, InternationalWomensDay...


This International Women’s Day campaign theme is #ChooseToChallenge and we at 1st Step couldn’t be prouder to say that we are committed to challenging the inequality and bias, and questioning the stereotypes within our industry and in general.

At 1st Step Solutions and across the 1st Step Group, we have always celebrated and embraced the incredible women within the recruitment and construction industries, and never wish anyone to feel as though they are any less than their colleagues, regardless of their gender.

Currently, women make up 64.5% of our overall workforce. This year so far, we have seen Andrea Llufrio promoted to Associate Director – Finance and Commercial, and Karen Munday was promoted to Credit Control Supervisor. One of the most pivotal roles within the business is held by Careena Dabbs, who has been with 1st Step since the beginning and has proven to be vital to the functioning of the group in every way imaginable.

We are committed to investing in all our staff, offering training and development to ensure everyone can progress their career with us in the best way possible through apprenticeships and Chartered courses. We currently have Ashley Boyce, Group HR Coordinator, currently enrolled to study and take her CIPD Level 5, which we will offer all support we can.

Not just today, but every day, we would like to celebrate the strong, hard-working women not just within 1st Step, but everywhere!
