"The graduate programme has enabled me to work with many experienced colleagues, as well as the chance to understand design and on site decisions."
The expertise of my colleagues is very broad which has been such a great learning experience. I’ve learnt that the changing requirements of a project over time can be very challenging, and that communication with all parties can result in faster solutions, especially when requested at the earliest opportunity. And that assigning tasks can really speed up the process but only when there are the right controls in place.
My advice to anyone starting a career in the construction industry is to question every detail and when you are not sure of the answer, go and ask somebody.
