We are delighted to announce the promotion of 31ten team member Laura Bridges, to Director.

She provides constructive challenge to all who work with her and a unique expertise from the perspective of having been there and done it in a local authority setting. To the team she brings a huge amount of enthusiasm and positivity. Her versatility and ‘can do’ attitude creates trust at all levels; exactly what we want from our business leaders.” says Chris Shepherd, Director and Owner of 31ten.
Laura brings a wealth of expertise to the role, making full use of her property, construction, programme and project management background, with experience working in both local government and the private sector.

“The variety of projects and the breadth of clients we work with has always been a massive reason why I love working at 31ten. Especially when a lot of the work we do feels like we are making a positive contribution to the communities in which we work. The flexibility of our approach to work and what that offers me in terms of work-life balance with two young kids is second to none. I am proud to be part of such an inspiring, collaborative team.” says Laura.
“I am really looking forward to helping shape the future expansion of the business” Laura added, “continuing to deliver high-quality work for our clients and exploring areas for company growth that respond to the challenges being faced by our clients in the public sector.”
