Jack Belcher - Quantity Surveyor
Midas provided me with the opportunity to pursue my chosen career in Quantity Surveying after completing my A Levels and faced with the daunting task of finding a route into the industry. After nearly three years with the company, they have been fully supportive in my training and development as well as giving me the platform to grow as both a construction trainee and an individual.
Owen Quinn - 1st & 2nd Line IT analyst
“Here at Midas I have been given an amazing opportunity to develop my skills into a career! Not only that, but I am given support and guidance to develop my skills to where I want to go in future. Everyone at Midas is really helpful, friendly and I get along with everyone! There are plenty of opportunities within Midas too! They are truly a fantastic employer and they keep me motivated to do my best with every challenge I face.”
Alice Rumbelow - Assistant Quantity Surveyor
I would recommend a placement year to all university as I have found it extremely useful. I know even after 2 months that my final year at university is going to be so much easier. The depth of the knowledge and applied skills I have already developed cannot be learned in a classroom. It's placing together all of the foundations I have learnt at University and applying them in practice, which gives me a greater understanding of the process.
The people I work with are all so helpful and I know if I ever have any problems or queries they are always be there to help. I have built great working relationships with my team and they made me feel so comfortable and welcome from day 1.
Jake Woodrow - Assistant Site Manager
I joined Midas for my year out placement from UWE in 2015. I would 100% recommend a placement to anyone wanting to work in construction management. Experience is vital, so if you can leave education with a year or even 4 months over the summer, it all helps. You may see it as a year job but from this placement I have secured myself a trainee site management job with Midas when I graduate which is amazing. Going in to my final year not having to worry about applying for jobs is a weight of my shoulders.
In terms of the difference between class room and site is huge. I have probably learnt more in the one year of placement than my 2 years at university. Practical experience has been hugely beneficial to my learning and hopefully I will carry this into my final year to help with my grades.
