"Whether you’re looking to join ISG as a graduate or you’re already part of the team and want to explore your opportunities in the business, remember to always make the most out of the opportunity and relationships you form."

My passion for the construction industry began ten years ago when I joined a main contractor as a receptionist and assistant to the estimating department. Almost instantaneously, I knew I was in the right place. I loved the fast-paced atmosphere and I easily fit in with the personalities the industry attracted. Within six months of joining, I enrolled to do the National Certificate in Construction, marking the starting point for my career in construction.

I joined ISG three years ago, and in that time I’ve completed my Foundation Degree in Construction, was promoted to the role of senior estimator, and was part of ISG’s first cohort of the Futures Group. And most recently, I’ve become one of a few graduate supervisors for the business.

The Futures Group played a major role in my career progression and development at ISG. I feel more confident in making business decisions, while the programme and training days have enhanced my skills. I’ve also developed great relationships with senior management and a number of stakeholders, and had the opportunity to present a business proposal to the board.

Whether you’re looking to join ISG as a graduate or you’re already part of the team and want to explore your opportunities in the business, remember to always make the most out of the opportunity and relationships you form. Ultimately, you’ll get out of it what you put in.

ISG promotes development and innovation within the business and have supported me in everything I strive to achieve. The business is a fun environment to work in and has many experienced professionals who are all happy to help with any queries or ideas you may have. As long as you show the right attitude and drive, the opportunity to further your career is right here.
