Bjourn Bigley

Director of Operations (Scotland and North England)

My role as a leader is to create an environment where innovation thrives and enables our operational teams to change our industry for the better. For me, leadership is listening to understand - empowering our teams to deliver operational excellence above and beyond industry standards and developing the great talent we have across the business

What I enjoy most about working at Careys is the challenges and diversity of the work we deliver – bringing great teams together and working with great people that make it happen. As I enter a new stage in my career as Managing Director, what excites me most is the chance to lead Careys into the next phase of our growth and development as we begin our journey of delivering a five-year strategy, and to champion our mission ‘to use our passion and expertise day in, day out to deliver exceptional construction services’.

With over 20 years’ experience in the civil engineering and construction sector, I’ve been at Careys for 17 years where I’ve been fortunate to have worked with great teams responsible for delivering some of the UK’s most challenging and rewarding projects. What this experience has taught me is the importance of building and maintaining great teams, having strong relationships with clients, partners and local authorities, which has been fundamental in the success, performance and growth of Careys.

I look forward to the challenge ahead of ensuring we are creating a great place to work for the future, delivering operational excellence and being a trusted partner of choice. I am confident that the construction and civil engineering services we deliver will enable us to share our stories and expertise for the next 50 years and beyond - creating amazing built environments for local communities and future generations.
