james-kirbyI am excited by the opportunity to work for six industry leading companies during the 2-year scheme whilst also working towards a HNC in Construction and the Built Environment and an NVQ Diploma in Construction Site Supervision.

My first placement was with Carillion PLC. I helped to estimate for a Manchester Life tender and gained experience in the fields of Quantity Surveying and Project Management. Seeing operations happen on a live construction site helped me to complete my college assessments and gain a broader insight to what happens day to day on a construction site.

My second placement was with Planit-IE, Landscape Architects. Planit-IE are employed to design the Landscape for Manchester Life’s Murrays’ Mills scheme.

My next placement is with MAC Construction Consultants. MAC are currently working on all Manchester Life Phase One projects so this placement will benefit me in terms of working closely with Manchester Life. Working in a Private Quantity Surveyors Practice will give me invaluable experience that relates closely to my long term objective.
