Five minutes with Joe Evers

We spent 5 minutes with Joe Evers, Senior QS and head of our Social Value and People Together committees.

We found out what makes him tick and how he feels working for a people-people company.

Here’s what he had to say.


What do you do at Walker Sime – and what do your friends think you do at Walker Sime?

I am a Chartered Quantity Surveyor – my friends think I drink coffee all day.


What is a typical work day like at Walker Sime?

It varies! However, everyday means fighting for each other and giving it 110%


Tell us why you love your job in 3 words (we are hoping here that you do love your job!).

Make a difference!


Tell us an interesting/surprising fact about you.

I have 943 vinyl records in my collection.


If you could choose your age forever, what age would you choose and why?

I would choose my age now (33) because I’ve never been happier!


If you had 25 hours a day, how would you use your extra time?

I would spend it with family, friends or colleagues.

Apple Podcasts, Untappd and NTS Radio.

The Heath Pie Shop in Dagenham for Pie, Mash and Liquor and Upton Park.


What is your favourite family tradition?

At least a 10-mile hike on New Year’s Eve followed by a country pub.


What does being a ‘people people’ company mean at Walker Sime?

It’s who we are and not just a corporate slogan! We walk the walk and talk the talk!
