CAD Team & Drone Pilot


“I have been working at Survey Solutions in the Nottingham team since the summer of 2021. I joined just as I was completing an apprenticeship with a previous company, and I have since passed with a distinction in Geospatial Technology. 

“Early on in my time at Survey Solutions, my skills as a drone pilot have been utilised and I have been put through my GVC and A2 CofC qualification, meaning I can fly the drones for the company to produce 3D point clouds and orthomosaics. I also expressed great interest in learning how to work with Revit modelling and was subsequently put on a two-day training course. I really feel like you’re being listened to, and people take an interest in what you’re passionate about which makes working here enjoyable.

“My current role is a CAD operator, meaning I work on measured building surveys including floor plans and elevations. Working with the site data from raw scan data through to a 3D point cloud, is always satisfying. On top of this I’ve helped other new starters get to grips with the tools on AutoCAD and they’ve quickly picked up the process. 

“My weeks at work vary from being in the office to on site completing drone surveys. This is a big achievement for me as I’ve been wanting to do this ever since I left school. I love the blend between office and site as it gives me opportunities to travel to different areas and I enjoy seeing different parts of the country.

“Your hard work doesn’t go unnoticed – and I have been able to progress through the business quickly which is amazing considering the short time. It goes to show that your efforts that you put in do pay off, and it gives you more of an incentive to do well.

“I’m extremely happy in my job, and I love all the perks that come with it. There is an amazing team around me, both in the office and out on site, which makes me feel very welcomed every day.”
