There are plenty of opportunities at Redrow, plus great people to work with, and a large support network. I started on Redrow’s Commercial Apprentice Programme in September 2014 before progressing to Assistant Quantity Surveyor, then Quantity Surveyor. On a typical day I could be involved in anything from take-offs, quantifying works and tendering new sites to meeting with sub-contractors. My role comes with plenty of variety and I particularly enjoy the fast-paced environment.
“Whilst working at Redrow, I have completed my BTEC Level 3 in Construction in the Built Environment, as well as completing my Edexcel Level 3 NVQ Diploma in Surveying, Property and Maintenance. With Redrow’s support, I will be starting my HNC degree in September 2021 in Quantity Surveying. I would definitely recommend working for Redrow; they honestly care about their employees’ well-being and enjoy giving us opportunities to thrive and succeed!”

My journey with Redrow began in March 2019 when, after some months’ job hunting, I spotted the opportunity to become a Trainee Quantity Surveyor for Redrow’s East Midlands region. I jumped at the chance! I’d always had a passion for construction, since my family have been in the housebuilding industry for as long as I can remember.
"My daily responsibilities include maintaining subcontractor relationships, orders and payments, analysing business costs and keeping a site running within budget. I am currently working on my Redrow Construction Management (Housebuilding) degree, which enables me to acquire a wider industry knowledge whilst gaining on-the-job experience. The opportunities I’ve been given since joining Redrow have been amazing, including attending business conferences, joining the Redrow Ambassador Scheme, and inspiring the next generation. I would definitely recommend Redrow to anyone interested - I’m so glad I joined and can’t wait to carry on progressing in my career!”
