Scholarship Recipient 2012
Peter undertook the paid work section of his Scholarship over the Christmas Holidays of 2012/2013. He gained some invaluable experience and demonstrated some fantastic skills and great fit with the team. As a result he was offered the opportunity to work part-time during the following year and joins the Leighs QS team permanently in November 2013.
Below is what Peter had to say about his Scholarship with Leighs:
"Receiving the Leighs Construction 2012 Scholarship gave me the opportunity to be immersed in a rapidly growing industry with a team of friendly, motivated and skilled people. I received relevant industry experience by undertaking a multitude of different tasks, on different jobs, allowing me to get a hands on feel for the construction industry. The chance to be involved with projects and to be mentored by Senior QS Shaun Trowbridge, was instrumental in giving me a much better grounding and understanding of construction going into my second year of Quantity Surveying at CPIT.
The Leighs Construction Scholarship was a challenging and rewarding experience and has been an invaluable opportunity helping me find my feet in a rapidly evolving industry.
Thank you to Anthony and the team at Leighs for all the support during my scholarship work experience."
