"My journey to joining Promet is inspiring. After dedicating a decade to homeschooling my four children as a single mom, I decided it was time to change. Fueled by a passion for hands-on work, I embarked on a mature age apprenticeship journey, eventually leading me to the doors of Promet, where I found a perfect match.

What drew me to Promet? It's more than just a job—it's a community. The allure of a smaller company with a big heart, a supportive culture, and a crew that feels like family was irresistible. Finding Promet wasn't just a stepping stone but a destination where my career goals and personal aspirations aligned seamlessly. One memorable moment was returning from my first swing at Promet. As I nervously stepped into the service manager's office, little did I expect the flood of appreciation waiting for me. That moment reaffirmed my belief in the power of positivity and the importance of a supportive workplace culture.


Professional development isn't just a buzzword at Promet; it's a way of life. From swift training and certifications to a platform where my voice is heard and valued, Promet is more than a workplace—it's a springboard for success. Promet is like an oasis of inclusivity and equality in an industry dominated by men. My journey as a mechanical fitter perfectly showcases this. Here, gender is no barrier; respect, support, and opportunity are the foundations upon which careers thrive. To women considering a career at Promet: seize the opportunity! Promet is more than just a workplace; it's a community where your talents are celebrated, your voice is heard, and your potential is limitless.

As a single mother raising four children, finding a company offering a harmonious work-life balance was essential. Promet not only understood this but also demonstrated a steadfast commitment to flexibility. At Promet, family isn't just a priority; it's a cherished core value. In a sea of support, I haven't faced any challenges solely because of my gender. I'm not just considered a woman in the industry but an integral part of the team, valued for my skills and not judged by my gender.

The opportunities for women working at Promet are boundless in trades, sales, admin, or support roles. For me, the road ahead is paved with possibilities, each waiting to be seized and conquered. Empowering women isn't a slogan; it's a way of life at Promet. By treating everyone equally and fostering a culture of inclusivity, they aren't just breaking stereotypes; they are rewriting the narrative.


Today, as we celebrate International Women's Day, let's toast all the incredible women like me who inspire us to dream significantly, break barriers, and reach for the stars.

Here's to us—thank you for being beacons of hope, symbols of strength, and shining examples of what it means to be women in the workforce!"
