At Amaro we focus upon and invest in our biggest asset, our people. We promote a culture of learning and improving, being accountable and having respect for others. This sets us apart from our competitors and we have proven through our actions that Amaro is a great place to work with fantastic career opportunities!

Our Managing Director leads by example and gives me the tools and resources to operate as a HSE Manager effectively and professionally. I personally feel valued and supported and will continue to give 100% commitment to Amaro.

About Lewis

A born leader with an open and engaging management style, Lewis was the natural choice for the role of HSE Manager, in no small part thanks to his ability to bring out the best in others through mentoring, coaching and encouragement.

His ability to engage with the workforce in a language they understand and respect, to inspire them into action, and to understand how to deliver key messages clearly up and down the chain of command has made him an invaluable member of the Amaro community, and a welcome presence on our clients’ many sites.

Since joining the team, Lewis has been instrumental in the forging of new alliances with likeminded organisations, committed to improving the health, safety, and wellbeing of those working in the rail industry. He’s also spearheaded Amaro’s involvement with the Forces Transition Group, encouraging and supporting service leavers into a rewarding and long-lasting career in rail.
