Shane McCarron

Senior Quantity Surveyor

I have been working with Vaughan Engineering for 4 years now and in my time with the company I have found my role both challenging but also very rewarding. There is open communication within all levels of the company and in my role I have never been micro managed which in turn makes you more responsible for your work, more productive and has helped me develop in a professional capacity. There is a good team ethos and an energetic work environment where one can share and create new ideas which in turn makes you feel a valued member of the team.

Luke McBride

Trainee Project Engineer

I started my apprenticeship with Vaughan in late 2018 and was almost immediately put to the test on some of our very complex healthcare projects! Straightaway I loved being on site, the teams we have on the ground are welcoming and helpful. I have yet to meet someone who is not willing to spend 10 minutes teaching me something or answering one of my hundreds of questions. The wealth of knowledge we have at Vaughan is incredible. As a third-year apprentice I have now been given responsibilities for managing key specialist works on site, and I have grown to be a more confident person and have even branched into other skills such as CAD by aiding our co-ordination department at crucial times. I can only thank Vaughan for my experience so far, I have learned and grown so much but I still have lots to go!

Stephen Buchanan

Operations Manager

I joined Vaughan in November 2014 as a Senior Mechanical Project Manager following a lengthy period of working on international construction projects.  Having only experienced projects outside of the UK, I was initially hesitant about returning to work in NI and whether I could fit in to the ‘ways things were done here’ and if I could truly offer anything new to the company.  This was very quickly quashed once I realised how dynamic, forward-thinking and empowering Vaughan are to work for.  From the outset I felt [and continue to feel] motivated, valued, part of the team and encouraged to grow and step outside of my comfort zone.  I don’t believe I am unique in this experience as I feel all employees are valued and encouraged to continue their professional development and career progression.  These are traits that would make anyone want to work for Vaughan.

I have since progressed to my current role as Operations Manager dealing with Healthcare projects and a member of the company’s Senior Management Team.  I am passionate about the work we do and the effect the projects have on our community; particularly healthcare and education.

I joined Vaughan Engineering Services Ltd in 1983 as an apprentice Pipe Fitter.  With the companies support I achieved the required City & Guilds qualifications.  In the following years I worked on many projects progressing to Charge Hand and then Site Foreman.  In 1996 I was offered the opportunity to move into the office as a Senior Contracts Engineer. Over the last 23 years I have continued to receive ongoing support and been afforded the opportunity for ongoing training and development which has aided my progression to my current role as Operations Manager.  I work as part of a large team which continually successfully delivers on challenging contracts.  Throughout my career I have had the opportunity to work with motivated individuals on numerous diverse and interesting projects.
