George is currently enrolled in college, pursuing a T-level qualification in Design, Surveying, and Planning for Construction, along with studying A-Level Maths. He began a placement at Fairhurst at the start of 2024, committing to one day a week as part of his college course requirements.

During his time in the office, George has been proactive and enthusiastic, eagerly seeking opportunities to learn and gain experience and he has become a valued member of the team. In recognition of his contributions, Fairhurst has offered George a part-time position during his summer break from college and will continue his placement into the next academic year.

Once he has completed college, George hopes to enrol in a civil engineering degree apprenticeship—a goal that Fairhurst hopes to support him in.

With everyday working at Fairhurst, I can feel my professional and industry skills develop. I have the chance to be involved in projects that are taken from conception to finished product which gives me a huge sense of purpose and achievement. For me, the greatest part of working at Fairhurst is that you can see the positive impact your work has on the community.
