What our people have to say…
Take a look at what some of our team have to say about working at Survey Solutions and how they have developed their careers.
“I am proud of my progression through the company from a trainee surveyor with no surveying experience, to the senior surveyor role I find myself in now. I am lucky to have learnt from very experienced and knowledgeable surveyors over the years and I am now hoping I can pass some of those learnings to others in the business.
“Whilst the majority of my 15 years’ experience has been in land and measured building surveys, I recently took the chance to broaden my knowledge and have been trained in underground surveying. I am the first person at Survey Solutions to do this and is a great example of where the company can offer people lots of career choice and progression. I now combine my role across all three areas which makes every week different.
“One week I can be carrying out utility surveys, the next week I can be doing a measured building survey, the next week I can be carrying out a topographical survey and mentoring some of my colleagues. I also provide holiday cover for the Survey Manager when they are on holiday.
“I have seen a lot of tech changes in my 15 years with us continuing to invest in laser scanning, drone and other survey equipment.
“The company has supported me to become a Technical Member of the CICES and I am now looking to move up to Full Member status. I am also studying for my ProQual Level 3 Certificate in Utility Mapping and Surveying.
“Now I have more experience I enjoy training and helping people with their projects and being available to give any advice. I have found that I enjoy leading a team of surveyors on large projects more than I do working on my own. One thing I have seen over the years is seeing people’s commitment to the company and their own careers progressing when they receive the promotions, they have worked so hard to achieve.
“Taking your own initiative is important and to be encouraged for any new starters. If you show the right attitude and application to your role, there is real opportunity to grow within our company.”
