University/ Degree: Liverpool John Moores University, Msc Comercial Building Surveying
Hey I'm Ste, I first graduated back in 2009 when the construction industry wasn't at its best, so I started working in sales to pass the time. Although I enjoyed the job and did it for a few years, I had always been interested in construction and knew it was the sector which I wanted to be working within.
I decided on a change of direction and took the brave step to return to university and study my Masters, which probably makes me one of the "more mature" graduates starting this year. I had a good idea which department I wanted to work within, and the Redrow graduate schemes allows you to be more flexible when you have a passion for a certain subject. I was offered a place on a Commercial Graduate scheme which will hopefully lead to me becoming a Quantity Surveyor.
My graduate scheme is based in Leeds so I relocated from Liverpool which has been an exciting opportunity, giving me a whole new county to explore. Everyone in Redrow has been very supportive and you are taught everything you need to know whilst your working, which I find much more engaging than learning in a lecture theatre.
