“I have always wanted to work within the property and construction industry and my apprenticeship was the first step towards doing that. Of course, I had no idea then that one day I would be returning to the place that I studied to get my first on site construction experience! Being from Nottingham as well as part of the hard working team building this impressive new campus gives me so much pride in a job that I already love.”

Jess Peet

“As a woman in construction, I hope I can inspire others and show that this industry has no barriers - it is a sector full of possibilities for men and women. I am part of a rapidly growing minority and when I am on site, my gender is completely irrelevant.”

“Aside from the connection I have to Nottingham College through my apprenticeship, my favourite thing about the role is the diversity. Every day is different and presents new and interesting learning opportunities meaning that I leave work feeling extremely fulfilled and start each morning with a sense of eager anticipation about the new experiences ahead.”
