As we approach the end of Learning at Work Week 2022, we thought we’d find out how our newest team member, Finley, has got on since joining us straight from university at the beginning of the month. Fin completed his BSc (Hons) Degree in Quantity Surveying at The University of Greenwich earlier this year.

Question: How have you found the transition from university to the workplace?

Fin: I have enjoyed the transition a lot, being able to apply what I studied at university into a working environment. As well as developing my all-round knowledge of the construction industry.


Q: What sorts of tasks have you completed in your first month?


F: Since joining Modus at the start of the month I have undergone a variety of tasks, including measuring components for cost plans and bills of quantities, as well as heavily assisting on a tender analysis and report.


Q: What have you enjoyed most during your time so far at Modus?


F: Since joining Modus I have enjoyed applying what I learnt at university into real world projects to enhance my abilities. Also, meeting the team and helping the more experienced surveyors out where they require.


Q: What are you most looking forward to?


F: I am most looking forward to start attending site visits to further develop my knowledge and understanding of the project timeline, as well as assisting further on projects and eventually taking on projects myself.


Q: What advice would you give to other university leavers?


F: My advice for university leavers would be to start considering a post graduate position early on in your final year, which is what I did. This enabled me to swiftly transition into a full-time position once finishing university.
