Meet Lexi, our Assistant Estimator Apprentice!
Lexi joined our Pre Construction team a year ago and is currently carrying out a Level 3 Surveying Technician programme with Hartlepool College of Further Education. Since joining us, Lexi has grown in confidence and developed her skills whilst being a part of a team which wins multi-million-pound projects.
We asked Lexi a few questions about her experience as an apprentice with #TeamSeymour:
What do you love most about your apprenticeship?
“I love that I learn on the job whilst being taught the role by people who are successfully doing the job I’ve chosen for my career, the help and support that I receive on an ongoing basis is what I value the most.”
What advice would you give to someone interested in doing an apprenticeship?
“Do research on the companies you are applying for and read their apprentices’ stories – make sure you embrace the opportunity that you are given and ask questions to learn and develop.”
What have you had the opportunity to do/what have you learnt that you wouldn’t have otherwise?
“As well as my apprenticeship I have had the opportunity to take part in many courses i.e. first aid and webinars that I would not have had the opportunity to complete if not doing an apprenticeship. I’ve also really enjoyed the opportunity to make the most of first hand site experience which has strengthened my understanding and knowledge in my chosen field – particularly when building up from first principles during the estimating process.”
Three words to describe the day-to-day life of an apprentice…
Absolutely amazing opportunity!
