"In 2011 I was a new migrant to the UK with a strong interest in quantity surveying. But with no financial options, opportunities to further my education, or work experience I felt this was a lost cause and started to give up on my dream. 

In order to provide for my family I started working as a security officer and one of my jobs was on a project that Arcadis was working on. I started talking to the people from Arcadis and mentioned my dream of one day becoming a Quantity Surveyor. Recognising my passion, a couple of Arcadis senior leaders gave me the opportunity to showcase my raw talent.

I now work for Arcadis as a Trainee Quantity Surveyor, am at university doing my MSc in Construction Commercial Management and have enrolled on my APC training. I really am living my dream and it’s all down to the open minded and inclusive nature of Arcadis."
