Elise has joined CC Ltd during the placement year of her BSc Building Surveying degree. We are really happy to be able to support Elise, as an aspiring RICS chartered building surveyor, and another much needed female in the construction industry, Elise spent two years at university learning the theoretical side of building surveying but was keen to gain some hands-on practical experience. Elise has thrown herself into CC Ltd, taking every opportunity to gain more experience with the understanding that you really get out what you put in. On reflection of her first 3 months with CC, Elise said "...already I can reflect on a lot of things I'm gaining from this industry experience that being in a classroom just can’t be taught. My knowledge of building surveying is widening daily, my brain's being tested & I'm gaining confidence within the industry that I wouldn’t get from not completing a placement year. I am beyond excited for what's to come and how far I will grow before heading back to uni."
