Supporting a new generation of construction and property professionals is a priority at G&T which is why this year we continued to support the LREF Schools Programme. The aim of the day is to inspire a new generation of city-makers as well as promoting a more accessible and diverse industry.
42 young people from schools across London came together to connect with representatives from different industry professions and find out about careers in the built environment. The event provided a fantastic platform to bring the industry’s career opportunities to life, in the heart of the city at one of the largest real estate conferences of the year.
Speakers included the Deputy Mayor of London as well as G&T's project surveyor Blair Hercules, assistant surveyor Grace Allen, graduate surveyor Claire Saville and senior project manager Emma Scott-Miller, who shared why they decided to join the industry and also their ambitions for the future.
As a surveyor at G&T I've had the opportunity to work on a variety of insightful and fascinating projects, ranging from office refurbishments to state-of-the-art hotels. I would encourage anyone thinking about a career in the built environment to consider surveying!
