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 first started in the company over 20 years ago and have since enjoyed a varied career which has seen me work from four different Survey Solutions offices.
“I am now back in Yeovil having also worked in Norwich, Sevenoaks and our office in Scotland. This would not have been possible at many surveying companies but has provided me with so much experience and development within the industry.
“My role as Survey Manager is split approximately 50:50 between office and sites. At the moment we are slightly smaller in size than some of our other offices so as well as the site work, I lead the surveying team as well as complete all quotations and client management for projects in the South West of the UK.
“It’s a long time now but I started as a trainee in 2000 and have worked my way through all of the grades of surveying to my current position. To help with this the company supported me with an HNC qualification in Civil Engineering where I attended college one day a week, so I was able to balance learning my career whilst also earning money so have worked my way up through all grades of surveyor up to Survey Manager.
“When I try to describe Survey Solutions, the one word that sticks out is variety. We do so many different jobs across different sectors and surveying disciplines. We are also seen as having the best scenery compared to all our offices so being out in the colder weather does have its advantages.
“In 20 years of surveying, I have benefitted from some great advice from people in the business and would urge anyone joining us to do the same. We have hundreds of years of collective experience and it is the best way to progress, develop and learn. Plus be prepared for all weathers!
“The variety of work and the support of my colleagues and the wider team are definitely two reasons why I enjoy what I do and why I have worked here for so long. There are exciting plans in place for the Yeovil office and I am excited to be part of that growth and to help those at the early stage of their careers to develop and love what they do.
