Craig Finlayson

Director, United Arab Emirates

After leaving high school I embarked on a training programme as a quantity surveyor with a small private firm in Scotland in 1999. The traineeship allowed me to study part time and at the same time obtain on-the-job experience. In 2002, I joined Currie & Brown in Glasgow and was fortunate to work on many types of projects across different sectors – from healthcare to retail, from new builds to refurbishments.

Viktoria Yasinsky

Associate Director, USA

I started my career in facilities project management. As I gained more experience I noticed that project managers often don’t have enough time to dedicate to the details of project controls. As I particularly enjoyed that aspect of the project process, when the opportunity arose I switched to specialise in this field.

Lewis Fong

Assistant Cost Consultant, UK

I began looking for apprenticeships while I was at sixth form during my first year of A-Levels. I decided that full time education was not the right route for me. Having some family and friends in the construction industry I decided to take a look at quantity surveying. Currie & Brown stood out to me because of its global presence and variety of jobs.

James Riley

Trainee, UK

I started my quantity surveying apprenticeship with Currie & Brown in August 2016. My experience previous to this included six months’ roofing and six months’ steel erecting at the London stadium, which provided me with valuable experience of working on site. Although I enjoyed working on site, I didn’t want this to be my career and I was not a fan of the freezing, early mornings! I diverted my attention towards architecture and quantity surveying, and because I enjoy maths I decided to go for quantity surveying, and I am pleased with the choice I made.

I have been with Currie & Brown since 2007 when I joined as a trainee cost manager, having previously worked in marketing.

I graduated from Loughborough University in the summer of 2018 with a degree in geography and business management. As my dad is a quantity surveyor, I’ve been around construction and surveying my whole life. His career always interested me, so, despite my choice of degree, I felt construction was an industry I would both enjoy and do well in.

While completing my A levels in 2018, I thought about my career options and whether I should go to university or not. After doing some research, I was surprised by the range of options the construction industry offered in terms of roles, opportunities and progression, and so I decided to apply for an apprenticeship scheme.
