Manager and is now studying Level 4 Construction Management.
Hollie, commenting on her journey with Morgan Sindall:
“My first introduction to Morgan Sindall Construction was in
November 2018 when I was looking for a site management
apprenticeship to start in September. I had been working for a
di erent construction company in site management and document
control for 12 months before this, where I’d realised that being out
on site was what suited me best. I had spoken to people about
di erent construction companies on who to apply with and many
brought up Morgan Sindall with a positive and welcoming attitude.
When I decided to apply with Morgan Sindall through the early
careers team, I received guidance from Helen Clements (Community
Investment Advisor at Morgan Sindall) on how long the process
would take and the next steps. A er my interview with Morgan
Sindall, I was told that it would take a week for them to get back to
me with their decision, in which I was successful! The application
process was so quick and easy with so much positive feedback
along the way.”
