Apprentice Focus | Quantity Surveying

Bailey Partnership

Caitlin joined us in August 2021 fresh out of education and is our most recent apprentice to join the team. Feeling disillusioned and cheated out of her last year of school due to the pandemic, full time higher education wasn’t something she wanted to pursue. Six months into her apprenticeship Caitlin has swiftly become part of the family, making lots of progress within the Quantity Surveying discipline. 

Aged 18, Caitlin is one of our youngest members of the Bailey Partnership team. Due to a family member already working within the construction industry, she was prompted to consider construction as a career path. Despite concerns during the summer that she had missed the opportunity to start an apprenticeship in September, she sent in her CV and hoped for the best. Within a few days, she was invited to an interview!

“I was unsure of what to do next, but when I had my first interview at Bailey Partnership, I had this light bulb moment and immediately knew this is what I wanted to do.”

Caitlin is thrilled with the range of projects she gets to be a part of and how she, as an individual, is able to directly influence the built environment.

“it’s really rewarding to see each building being built, compared to seeing them as digits on the screen”

As an apprentice, Caitlin works full time whilst studying part-time for her degree in Quantity Surveying at the University College of Estate Management.

Talking with G4C committee member, Tom Jones – “My apprenticeship lasts around 4 years and I can’t believe I am already 6 months into my degree! It will definitely pass by and at the end I will be a qualified, hopefully chartered, Quantity Surveyor!”

During the next five years, Caitlin is keen to grow and progress within the Construction Industry. One of her goals is to achieve a Chartership through RICS

Caitlin is such an asset and has already shown a huge amount of promise. We are delighted to help her gain the valuable experience she needs to become chartered and qualified.
