It’s International Women’s Day!sean parker
For International Women’s Day, we want to celebrate the fantastic women working at Tate Oil! As a predominantly male industry, we understand the importance of creating equality within the workplace. Tate Oil employs staff based on skills and experience, not on gender stereotypes, and will continue to do so for every role we recruit for.
According to The Guardian, only 14% of the energy workforce are women, and only 5% of executive board seats are not held by men. We’re pleased to announce that 55% of our senior roles within the Tate Oil family* are currently held by female members of staff, 47% of the sales team at Tate Oil identify as female – including two out of three senior roles within the sales department being held by women!
This International Women’s Day, we’ve asked some of our female members of staff about working in a male dominated industry, and how they’ve overcome challenges throughout their career!
Amy Styran – Marketing Manager
Sam Bartley – Regional Sales Executive
Cat Rafferty – Sales Manager
Claire Martin – Business Development Manager
Tamsyn Ayre – Regional Sales Executive
Helen Henderson – Operations Director
Sara Bound – National Sales Executive
Many thanks to everyone who took part in our interviews for International Women’s Day – thanks to your honesty, we can shine a light on the women working in the fuel industry, and gain some useful insight into how we can encourage more female workers within the energy sector!
