Carmac took me on as a Trainee Quantity Surveyor to start my career in the construction industry. Whilst I never thought of having a career in surveying, my managers and peers have given me the guidance and support to do this.

From day one it was clear that Carmac isn’t just a workplace, but a family run business with great values where everybody is made to feel like part of the family no matter what their role is.”
