Dyer & Butler’s Charlotte Robinson goes Above and Beyond


Engineering services specialist Dyer & Butler is celebrating after one of its rail planners won a prestigious accolade at the 2021 Amazon Everywoman in Transport & Logistics Awards.

The event was set up to recognise the immense contribution women are making in a largely male-dominated sector. Rail planner Charlotte Robinson was the proud winner of the ‘Above and Beyond’ category in The Infrastructure Award – one of 16 people recognised on the night for the qualities, attitude, hard work ethic and commitment to supporting other women that makes them a credit to the industry.

RailBusinessDaily was pleased to support the awards, and Business Daily Group CEO David McLoughlin stepped up to help judge, praising all nominated as “an outstanding example of the best in their field.”

Charlotte was recognised for her instrumental contribution to the creation of a ‘site competency and skills matrix’ that has delivered significant benefits in safety, site supervision, communication and time and cost efficiencies. Judges also made note of her role as a Dyer & Butler STEM ambassador. As part of this role, she mentored members of a ‘Girls in Engineering Club’ at her former secondary school and established a tailored work experience programme for students.

Charlotte said: “I am extremely proud to be named as a winner at the 2021 Amazon everywoman in Transport & Logistics Awards in the Infrastructure Above and Beyond category.

“I was amongst amazing finalists, and I feel honoured to be recognised alongside such diverse female talent who lead the way and inspire within the Transport & Logistics sector – an industry too often seen as male-dominated.

“Also thank you to Dyer & Butler for the nomination and recognition of going ‘above and beyond’ for the business.”

Richard Walker, Dyer & Butler.

Richard Walker, managing director at Dyer & Butler, said: “I would like to congratulate Charlotte for this impressive and thoroughly deserved industry recognition.

“Creating an inclusive working environment is vital as businesses look to attract and retain the best talent and these awards provide a wonderful platform to showcase progression, accomplishments and increasing avenues of opportunity within a traditionally male-dominated industry.”
