Hear from our staff
"After graduating from university, I was lucky enough to join First Wessex's Graduate Scheme. Initially working in the Asset Management team, I carried out tasks such as building surveys and implementing planned maintenance programmes. This provided me with valuable construction industry experience, which undoubtedly helped me to secure a job as a Trainee Quantity Surveyor for our subsidiary, First Wessex Homes. I am now on the North Town Project Team, helping to deliver over 200 new homes in Aldershot, and am working towards becoming a member of the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors!"
