Freddie Garrett Trainee, UK

Freddie Garrett

I have always known I wanted a career in construction but was unsure what aspect to pursue. After completing my A Levels in 2017, a close friend mentioned his experience as a QS apprentice, so I decided to focus my attention there and joined Currie & Brown in September 2018.

Currie & Brown has all the attributes of the type of company I was looking for. Working within a large business has allowed me to gain valuable job experience from some of the best in the industry and gain a qualification through the day-release programme.

Being part of the infrastructure team means I am constantly learning and improving, with lots of laughter and enjoyable moments. I have a great group of colleagues to encourage and guide me daily.

I have learnt a huge amount in the early stages of my employment, not only within a working environment but outside of the office role as well. I have developed key communication and relationship skills with clients and colleagues and am learning to deal with the day-to-day challenges a quantity surveyor faces. To be successful in your role you must approach every day with a positive attitude.

In the future, I hope to become a fully chartered quantity surveyor.
