What does an apprentice quantity surveyor do?

Ryan Unwin, Assistant Quantity Surveyor is based on one site – at Newfield School in Blackburn, a new facility being constructed for children with special educational needs. The commercial aspect of the Quantity Surveyor role appealed to him, such as placing orders with subcontractors, evaluating work and managing payments. 

Ryan has completed a BTEC Level 3 qualification in Construction after school. Alongside his job at Robertson, he spends one day per week at Salford University doing a degree in Quantity Surveying.

Ryan stressed the benefit of construction apprenticeships, and how this route to a career was better suited to him than pursuing A-levels and a full-time university degree.
