Nic has been with AMCM Group as a trainee quantity surveyor since July 2017. Over the last year, he has developed his skills from basic invoice logging to procuring and managing packages such as drylining and external landscaping, with the aid of the Commercial Director, Alex Fish.

He has always had a passion to become a quantity surveyor – while working for his previous employer (Site Sales) as an Affordable Homes Consultant, he enrolled with the University of Greenwich to study an HNC Level 4 in Quantity Surveying. He worked with Site Sales for a year until he sold Thurlow Park Road, where the construction management team was… AMCM Group! He soon became an AMCM trainee.

A year on from this point and he has now completed his HNC Level 4 to a Merit Level and has been offered an unconditional place at Westminster University, with the intention to study Quantity Surveying and Commercial Management BSc Honours. His aim is to complete this course in the next three years, to continue studying and then become chartered with the RICS.

Congratulations to Nic on passing his HNC, and we will continue to support him in his career development within Quantity Surveying. These are very positive times for the construction industry and we are proud to offer opportunities to younger workers at the beginning of their career progression. At AMCM Group we take every opportunity to include trainees wherever possible throughout our attractive and sustainable working environments. We enjoy being questioned and challenged, and this continuous improvement process has previously provided valuable innovations to project delivery, ensuring that the industry has a valuable talent base to build upon.

We are making every effort to bridge the skills gap and believe that it is in everyones interests to ensure that young people continue and flourish in their path to a rewarding career in construction. Therefore we are committed to nurturing, supporting and celebrating young people in construction by ensuring that a minimum 10 per cent of AMCM staff are sponsored trainees who have a clear pipeline of opportunity with the company.
