Eleanor Bell

Eleanor Bell, who runs her own contracting business in Cornwall gave up her previous job as a Showroom Sales Manager for an exclusive Design Company in Chelsea to retrain as an electrician in 2008. Her work now covers everything from small jobs around the home to complete rewires of business premises.

She says: “In my experience, people are surprised and delighted to find a female face in what has always been predominantly a male industry and tell me that they feel very comfortable to have me working in their home.”

Elecchicks

Female-only firm Elecchicks was set up last year by Leah Burman and Christine Vaghela, after they spotted a gap in the market for female contractors.

The duo’s company is Part P registered and undertakes all types of residential electrical work; they now spend three days a week working as electricians in the North London area where they have impressed customers with their punctuality, skill and professionalism.

“We discovered that there aren’t many female electricians trading in the UK and there was definitely a place in the market for Elecchicks,” says Leah.

 “There are not enough women going into these trades and we have had a great reaction from the men.”


Kellie Dillon-Welch

After moving back to the UK in 2003 with her young son, Kellie began looking for a career that would allow her to still be an active mum, but also enable her to support her family. After three years of hard work and on-the-job training, Kellie went on to set up her own business in 2008 and hasn’t looked back since. The flexibility of being self-employed has meant that she can still do the school run and spend time with her son, whilst running her company.
