During my time with Charles Brand I have been involved with exciting projects such as the MT park in DP World London Gateway docks in England which was a great experience , I learned many on site skills and also about the planning and preparation that goes into such a large project, and I was giving amazing guidance from senior and graduate engineers who all made my experience a lot easier and enjoyable.
After that I moved to the Fibrus project which was a new experience working in utilities and networking but have thoroughly enjoyed the process and learning new skills along the way. My mentors and colleagues have always given me great advice and have allowed me to progress as a engineer on site but also in my academic studies.

My experiences have been varied, extensive, challenging and rewarding. The company has been very welcoming and enjoyable to work with. I have met professional and enthusiastic people who have been willing to share their experiences, assist and guide me throughout my apprenticeship.
Working as an apprentice in a fast growing international industry has opened up many opportunities and learning techniques. My role as a Quantity Surveyor is an important cog in every project, irrespective of the cost, from small to multi-million. As an apprentice QS I have worked with a range of professionals for e.g. Directors, General Manager, Accounts Personnel, Site manager and supervisors.

Before I started with Charles Brand, I was nervous but I was given such a warm welcome and could see immediately how supportive it was going to be. It’s clear that Charles Brand see the benefits they get from hiring apprentices and, of course, I get so much from the company in terms of salary, experience and support. It has also been a great experience socially. When so many full-time students are feeling disconnected socially, I’m getting to know colleagues.
