Lindsey Dobbin, Assistant Engineering Manager - Maritime

I joined Frankham in 2013, a week after my final exams studying Civil Engineering at University. Since I started at Frankham I have worked on a vast range of projects, in various sectors including; building, civil, highways, maritime, rail and reactive maintenance.

The exposure to such variety at the early stages of my career really helped me to develop both my technical and communication skills. Working in the rail industry taught me a great deal about standards and regulations and why they are so important with regard to keeping everyone safe.

Frankham have supported my professional development by providing industry standard training and relevant competencies ranging from construction contracts to health and safety at work.

In 2018 I became the first engineer to achieve Incorporated Engineer status (IEng) through the Frankham ICE Training Programme. Since then, I completed the Leadership Management International Training Programme, Frankham sponsored and in 2020 I achieved Chartered Engineer status (CEng) with the Institute of Civil Engineers.

I now lead the Maritime Engineering Division and particularly enjoy maritime projects because they provide access to interesting and challenging sites that the public wouldn’t usually have sight of, plus working by the water is always nice. I mentor and support other members of the team, expanding our maritime expertise and experience.

My career journey at Frankham demonstrates the opportunities for career progression. I enjoy the variety of projects and the people I work with. I can truly say that I have never found work monotonous and that I don’t hate Mondays.
