Ardmac Trainee Scholarship


Quantity Surveyor Darragh Walsh

HOW LONG HAVE YOU WORKED WITH ARDMAC? I started with Ardmac through their Trainee Scholarship programme in 2017. HOW DID YOU GET TO WHERE YOU ARE TODAY? I studied Quantity Surveying part-time in TU Dublin which required me to be employed as a trainee QS. I began both my studies and employment at Ardmac simultaneously. WHY DID YOU CHOOSE ARDMAC? The course coordinator in TU Dublin had a relationship with both current and past students as well as with Senior Management in Ardmac and it was recommended that I join the team here based on the successful career development of past students. WHAT IS THE CULTURE AT ARDMAC LIKE? I have always found the culture to be healthy in the form of work-life balance discussion amongst peers. Most colleagues of mine whether it be on site or in Head Office would be advocates on the social aspects of life, provided work is done before play. There is also a strong sense of collaboration and reward amongst the wider project delivery teams and drives everyone for more success.
