Thought they were going to be a great company to work but unfortunately turned out not to be.They expect a lot of commitment but not all of their employees so this. Those that do get no recognition.Very disappointing, stressful and demoralising
Pros
Opportunity to travel
Cons
Long hours. Too much emphasis on commercial over health and safety

I would not reccomend this company. Their high level management do not know what is going on on site with other management persons. They do not give new employees a fair chance to prove themselves

Lots of helpful colleagues. Loved the work environment.Spent half a day training and then hit the ground running. Was able to add to my skills and knowledge. As long as the work was finished on time and all work completed they were happy and you were able to be your own boss.
Pros
Easy going colleagues
Cons
Not a permanent position

Although I have plenty of admin experience, I haven’t worked within the construction industry before, so it was a learning curve for me. Throughout my time here though I have found my colleagues to be approachable, supportive and down to earth with the attitude that they trust me within my role. I have gained a lot of valuable experience that I can take forward.

The project staff were all very focussed on the successful conclusion of the project and when the time came everyone clubbed together, were fully committed to achieving handover. The hardest part was the excessive hours required as no addition staff were introduced to lighten the load.

I would begin work at 8am, wasting no time getting straight into my tasks; by filing word processing, daily with phone and email enquiries, followed by taking a short break at 10am, then going back to work to finish at 5pm. I learned a lot within this job and it's giving me more people and hospitality skills.
Pros
Met many amazing people.
Cons
Distance to travel to work.
