Firstly, this apprenticeship is an amazing opportunity for anyone interested in any aspect of the construction industry. A few of the comments made by experienced professionals whilst I have been on this course have been ‘Wish they did that whilst I was training’ ‘That’s an amazing idea’, ‘You’ll have a grasp of everyone’s job whilst working on a project’ and lastly ‘The information you’ll gain is invaluable with experience that most graduates wish for!’.
I have been working with DBK, a property and construction consultancy. where I have been shadowing Project Manager and Quantity Surveyors. Business skills I’ve gained include structure and process for meetings, and technical terminology. I’ve also worked on cost plans for large and small project, pricing research, and organising tender documentation from commercial to residential.
Overall this is a real opportunity to see the inner workings of some of the most renowned construction companies in the world!
The skills and opportunities that the Manchester Apprenticeship scheme provides me with is so expansive it’s hard to sum up into words.Back to apprentices
