The projects are always exciting but can be challenging at times but the learning experience is second to none. During my summer holidays from university I am placed on site and faced with many exciting and rewarding opportunities.

Teamwork is the biggest skill to learn when working with a team on site; no one person can do a job perfectly and it needs input from all sides to make a job successful. I have always been a shy person but working on site has given me so much confidence to ask people for help and advice.
