Since joining Designer Group I have always communicated my desire for career progression and for establishing myself in the business. Nick and the senior team were very welcoming and set out a path of what I could achieve in the business, and through hard work I have been rewarded and feel part of the family here. I started at Designer Group four years ago, joined as an Electrical Project Manager Lead and have been promoted to Senior Project Manager and then to Operations Manager. I have enjoyed my journey and supporting the great work colleagues and teams that I look after and the business that has been built here. I’m proud to come to work and share my ethos and work ethic, promoting and delivering quality every day.

I joined Designer Group as a 1st year plumbing apprentice with no previous experience on building sites. I learned a lot from all the projects I have worked on and I will always be grateful for the opportunity Designer Group gave me as an apprentice. Near the end of my apprenticeship I was asked to develop my career with Designer Group by undertaking Building Services Engineering course in DIT and to move over to the Planning Department to become a Junior Project Planner.
