Where the STEM jobs are
Gradcracker works here's the proof
"The project I'm working on at the moment means the face of London infrastructure will change forever and improve the lives of many. I'm proud to be part of this."
When I began to explore careers I was sure I wanted to work at the 'coal face' so chose the construction management route at university, rather than engineering. Kier offered me sponsorship and full work experience through my years at Loughborough.
My first placement opportunity was on the Kings Cross project, where I managed a number of subcontractors from various trades. I learned the value of teamwork, negotiating skills, and the relationship between decisions and repercussions.
Following my final year at University, I was allocated an office-based tender assistance role. I worked hard, always looking for new opportunities to learn and became a useful team member, and was pleased to be part of the bidding team that won the Chelsea River Bridge project.
My next role was within the BFK project and has allowed me to excel in all aspects of management and technical competence. The project I'm working at the moment means that the face of London infrastructure will change forever and improve the lives of many. I'm proud to be part of this project and continually strive to ensure that not only my work, but also those who work with me, reach the highest possible standards. The role lends itself to working collaboratively as I have to manage the movements from all works created, and this means I'm continually able to apply my people skills to ensure effective communication and outcomes.
My enthusiasm for the role and the determination to deliver, for both the client and Kier, has led to me achieving my Chartership a year earlier than expected.
