Some of our people share their experience of working at Santia:

Liam Mcloughlin, Operations Director

"I started working for Santia in 2003 as a Trainee Asbestos Surveyor. Santia invested in my training and development and within a few years they had paid for me to obtain five professional, nationally recognised qualifications in asbestos management through BOHS. I’ve always been hard working, and as the company grew I was given the opportunity to progress to Surveyor/ Analyst, Project Manager and I spent nearly ten years as a Key Account Manager/ Sales Manager. The company valued my loyalty and commitment, and when we divested from the Alcumus Group in 2016, I was delighted to be offered the position of Operations Director. I now part-own the business following a Management Buy Out in February this year. Having started at Santia as a Trainee Surveyor, I understand the challenges our people face every day, I make sure they are supported with training and guidance to help every individual reach their full potential."


Ellie Clarke BSc, Training Consultant

"I joined Santia in 2016 as I wanted to develop my career as an Asbestos Trainer and I had heard that it was a good company to work for. In the last year, Santia has invested in my training with both a BOHS P402, NEBOSH General Certificate and mentoring from our Consultancy Director and Principal Training Consultant. I am driven and passionate about what I do, and have invested a lot of my own time in my professional development by studying on weekends and in the evenings. This investment has paid off as I have become a BOHS approved trainer, so I can teach the P402 and P405 course as well as UKATA Asbestos Awareness and Non-Licensed Work. We get a lot of positive customer feedback, and it feels great to be mentioned in name! I was so excited to go to the UKATA Excellence Awards in July and accept our Customer Service Award on behalf of Santia."


Amy Jones BSc, Head of Bids and Marketing

"I’ve worked for Santia for 5 years this December. I wanted to gain experience of working for a national company and join a business which was big enough to offer opportunities for progression, so I joined as a Principal Consultant in 2013. I’ve always been ambitious, even after returning to work from maternity leave and juggling a career and being a parent. Santia offered me flexibility which I really value as a mother, and even though I re-joined on a part time basis initially, as the company has grown my role has evolved and I have been able to progress to a more senior position. Now I am influencing our strategy for growth over the next few years and have had the opportunity to gain new experience by leading strategic projects such as re-branding, launching our new website and compiling winning bids to secure national contracts."
