Gavin Toms

Senior Project Manager

The consummate professional having worked within the rail industry for over 10 years, Gavin is a highly experienced Project Manager and Contractor's Responsible Engineer as well as an indispensable member of the Amaro team.

It's no exaggeration to say that Amaro are the best company I have worked for by some margin.

The continuous support and backing the team receives from the Managing Director is a real eye opener and allows those of us in positions of responsibility to feel genuinely appreciated.

Gavin began his career in the rail industry back in 2009 as an Electrical Team Leader, moving on to Giffen where he very quickly progressed through the ranks. From Site Manager and Assistant Project Manager through to Possession Planner and then Project Manager and CRE, Gavin’s rapid rise was, in no small part, thanks to his dogged determination, professionalism and superb work ethic

An experienced, motivated and proactive Senior Project Manager, Gavin has worked on a vast array of multi-disciplinary projects across a wide range of rail projects including electrical, signalling, civils, OLE bonding, points heating and more.

A genuine asset to the organisation and all those he works with, Gavin brings substantial expertise and experience to the table, repeatedly delivering safe, reliable and compliant works within ever-changing environments.

Key responsibilities include…

  • Managing labour and work allocation via Site Supervisors
  • Monitoring and reporting on programmes from a cost and delivery perspective whilst developing and reviewing business plans to support delivery and the wider business objectives
  • Developing and improving relationships with clients
  • Delivering and managing electrical and civils designs from Form A stage through to Final Form B for Construction
  • Working with the team to innovate and share best practice
  • Carrying out site safety surveillance inspections and quality checks
  • Working with the team to ensure that all projects are delivered in accordance with CDM obligations with project documentation kept up to date
  • Actively promoting a culture change in safety, behaviours and working practices
