Janet Dawson is Chief Human Resources Officer Director for Carillion, with responsibility for our people across the UK, Canada and MENA. Janet reports directly to the Chief Executive and is a member of the Group Executive.
Before taking up her current role she was Head of Reward for Carillion and has been with the Group for 15 years during which Carillion has seen significant change, including four major and several minor acquisitions, and its transformation from a primarily construction business to a major provider of business services particularly to the public sector.
A passionate supporter of equality, diversity and inclusion, Janet has instigated a number of interventions to develop Carillion’s leadership agenda in this area.
These include representing Carillion on the advisory board of the Your Life campaign (which Carillion sponsors) which encourages the take up of STEM subjects in schools and an initiative to ensure that by 2020 the make-up of Carillion’s leadership reflects the people they lead.
Janet is an Independent Governor at Manchester Metropolitan University, and is a member of the University’s Audit Committee and the Chair of the University’s Remuneration Committee.
