BESA Future Leaders

Nathan is a third year trainee Project Manager and is currently working towards his HNC.

Nathan decided to pursue an apprenticeship after leaving school. “I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do, and I have always had an interest in construction so I decided to look into the apprenticeship options available to me.”

“I was recommended the Briggs & Forrester Apprenticeship and decided to apply. Briggs & Forrester have given me the opportunity to work within different departments, and I discovered that project management is for me.”
