Inspiring Inclusion: Celebrating International Women’s Day 2024 at The Loft ‘Girls’

Hey there! As we celebrate International Women’s Day 2024, embracing the theme ‘Inspire Inclusion’, we at The Loft Boys are excited to spotlight the incredible women on our team. This day is a powerful reminder of the importance of diversity and inclusivity, values we hold dear. In our efforts to create a friendly and welcoming workplace, we ensure that the contributions and growth of our women colleagues are not just appreciated, but also celebrated. We’re immensely proud and grateful to have such inspiring women as part of our team!

Joining The Loft Boys, a company typically seen as a male-dominated trade outfit, can indeed present its unique challenges for women. From adapting to the culture and banter to the occasional robust working environment (we really mean bad smells), a bit of resilience and a good sense of humour certainly come in handy! But when it comes to navigating the unexpected – be it a job hiccup or a scheduling snag (which, let’s be honest, happens even in the best of teams!) – it’s often our female colleagues who step up to the plate. They are instrumental in smoothing things over and setting them right again. This isn’t by design, it’s just the natural way our company – like so many in similar industries – has evolved over the years.

Our customer reviews frequently highlight this, praising not only our skilled boys in the field but also the women in our customer service, sales, operations and finance teams who elevate the overall experience. To all our wonderful women colleagues: we salute you!

The Loft Girls: Celebrating Our Female Force

The Loft Girls Logo

We wanted to do something special for our female colleagues, so we decided to give our website ‘Loft Girls’ a makeover. We hope the colours aren’t giving you a headache yet but figured it was a fun way to recognise the significant impact that women have in the traditionally male-dominated trade industry. We hope you like it!

Lily’s Journey: An Interview


One of our inspiring stories comes from Lily, our Sales Coordinator. Her journey from an office junior to a key figure in our sales team is a story of resilience, growth, and breaking down industry stereotypes.

“Getting used to the office environment and the way things work in a tradesmen-dominated industry was a big learning curve for me but I believe there’s always something new to learn and ways to improve in any role.”

Her full story is a must-read and can be explored in our LinkedIn post.

Claire’s Conference Takeaways


We sent our intrepid Operations Co-Ordinator, Claire, to a recent Women’s Day Conference organised by Clarity Leadership, an empowering event that aligns perfectly with this year’s theme of ‘Inspire Inclusion’. As a key part of The Loft Boys’ commitment to fostering a diverse and inclusive workplace, Claire’s experience at the conference was filled with eye-opening presentations and crucial insights into promoting sisterhood and addressing bias in the workplace. She shares some of the valuable takeaways she brought back to our team in our LinkedIn post.


An Interview with Co-Founder, Sharron Taylor

We’re also excited to share another insightful interview, this time with our company stalwart, Sharron. Delve into her rich insights about working in a trade environment in her featured our LinkedIn post.
