Robin Hendrich, Jacobs

Young Consultant of the Year Finalist 2019

Jacobs has gone through a significant period of change over the last few years as it moves away from its traditional engineering roots, to a leading global professional services business bringing innovative solutions to the world. This change has been possible because of people like Robin.

Robin is one of our most passionate, entrepreneurial and professional consultants, who has not only achieved remarkable results for her clients and projects, but has also had a significant influence in shaping the future of Jacobs. From helping to establish the Strategic Consulting and Digital Solutions group as Head of Business Solutions, UK & Europe, through to playing a key role in the integration of CH2M into Jacobs, Robin has proved herself to be an invaluable member of the team.

An exceptional communicator, visionary and leader, Robin has built a strong team, and ensures that they share in her successes while she supports them fully — both from a project point of view but also by championing initiatives such as Mental Health Matters, the Jacobs Women’s Network and through her work as a STEM ambassador.

Robin’s experience is extensive, working across various sectors such as Nuclear and Transport for clients including Highways England, Horizon Nuclear, and Heathrow Airports Limited, and using specialist skills developed from her MIT degree in Engineering combined with her study of Lean Manufacturing at Berkley.

She is a truly unique individual and any employer, client, or team member is lucky to have the opportunity to work with her.
