“Go on a summer placement and discover if the construction industry is right for you.”
Andrew joined G&T as a year out placement and is now a fully qualified chartered surveyor.
“I was considering a role as a property developer before I heard about G&T through friends within the construction industry. I was first attracted to G&T because I knew they were one of the top construction consultancy firms and because of the extremely high APC pass rate. What really drew me in was the diversity of construction - no building is ever constructed exactly the same. On every project, there’s always a challenge that needs to be overcome. The opportunity to work through the challenges of construction is something you will never get in any other role.
I did a year out placement at G&T which helped me to decide my career path. G&T sponsored my last year through university and I came back after my final year as a cognate graduate. Three years on and I’m really enjoying it. I work on high-end new build offices and office fit-outs throughout Central London and no two days are ever the same! One of the great things about the job is that the satisfaction of overcoming the challenges encountered during a project’s lifetime.
One of the best things about G&T is sports and social scene. We have ‘First Friday drinks’ on the first Friday of every month and many sponsored sporting activities throughout each week.”
