Aaron Carson is an Ulster University BSc (Hons) Quantity Surveying and Commercial Management student working with esc. Aaron started in the construction industry as a plumber and did a foundation degree at South West College to help him decide on his career path.
It was whilst he was working as a Higher Level Apprentice under the Project Sponsor of the new SWC Erne campus, on which esc is providing project management and quantity surveying services, that he got to know our MD Pat Mullan which led him to join the esc team as a placement student in 2018.
Aaron realised that full time study wasn’t working for him; so he now works full time with esc whilst continuing to study for his degree part-time – getting hands-on project experience.
Over the next few weeks we’ll hear more from Aaron on his career choice, hints and tips for students and skills required to become a Quantity Surveyor.
