“I work in the estimating department of the work winning team for Laing O’Rourke’s specialist piling business, Expanded. I get to go on site visits to understand how piling operations work – I even drove a piling rig!

Seeing how my work could help communities, and the opportunity to work on large-scale projects drew me in and I realised this apprenticeship was for me. 

I love the welcoming atmosphere of the company and the great opportunities. I’m excited to develop and continue my career with Laing O’Rourke and I aim to lead and win my own bids at Expanded.”
