Fulton Hogan Hiways Road Inspector and Database Administrator, Elina Matalomani, is convinced that gender is not as important as hard work and making a con­tribution.

“Work is not built for gender. Both males and females can contribute their talents and work to improve themselves,” said Ms Matalomani.

Based at the Fulton Hogan Sa­vusavu Depot in Vanua Levu, Ms Matalomani is currently the only female Road Inspector working for Fulton Hogan in the Northern Division.

Ms Matalomani is from Waikil­oa Settlement, Bagata Village, in the province of Cakaudrove and began working for Fulton Hogan in 2014 after completing her TPAF Diploma in Informa­tion Technology, majoring in Networking.

Ms Matalomani inspects roads and reports to the Fulton Hogan Asset Manager .

She assists depot managers and supervisors with qual­ity control, building the depots’ monthly work programmes and processing claims upon the completion of work.

“My motivation is to become a qualified, effective and valu­able member within a profes­sional organisation like Fulton Hogan, and to further develop and strengthen my working skills and knowledge,” said Ms Matalomani.

Ms Matalomani attended Qal­itu District School, Savusavu Secondary School to Form 6, before she moved to Suva and completed her Year 13 second­ary education at DAV Girls’ Col­lege in Samabula.

“I am grateful to Fulton Ho­gan for mentoring me through knowledge transfers and in-house trainings which has boosted my knowledge.

“I know I have acquired a lot of skills and experience that was not taught in Universities and other companies,” said Ms Matalomani.

Asked about her future plans, Ms Matalomani replied, “I see myself developing as a leader and sharing my knowledge, ex­perience and skills.”
