ISG’s reputation in the construction industry and strong global portfolio were the two main reasons I wanted to join the ISG graduate programme. What I didn’t realise was just how much I would learn and grow.
The grad programme lets you work on several areas of the business, and gives you really great insight into what each part of the business does. I’m currently working on a 16-storey fit out project for a leading online retailer, where I’m responsible for forming pricing schedules, creating tender documents, ensuring agreements are in place, analysing tender returns and conducting tender interviews. Being in this role and part of the graduate programme has given me the chance to not only become a more skilled assistant commercial manager, but also learn more about what estimators, construction and technical service managers do. I’ve also achieved 100% absolute completion on a previous project I was working on, which was a fantastic surprise and just goes to show how much I have learned.
The journey and experience you’re taken on with ISG’s graduate programme has been second to none and I’d definitely recommend this to anyone looking to further develop their skills, broaden their experience and work in a positive but challenging environment. Over the next few years I’d like to continue learning about the industry, networking, and develop into the role of a senior commercial manager at ISG.
