Team Stories

Michael Mellows, Trainee Cost Manager

When did you join Linesight?

I was taken on by the company in February 2015 in a temporary role to help with the move to our new HQ. I obviously made a good impression because in June 2015 I was offered a permanent position as office runner.

How has Linesight helped develop your career?

As one of the admin support staff I began to learn more about the business and the type of work that we do and one thing I really noticed was that everyone seemed to really enjoy what they do.

Then in December 2015, I was asked if I’d be interested in a scholarship to attend DIT Bolton Street to study for a BSc in Cost Management and Construction Economics. I jumped at the chance and since January I’ve been working as part of a team as a Trainee Cost Manager. It’s a five year part time course and I’ll continue to work 4 days a week in Linesight, with the fifth day spent in college. It’s a great opportunity for me and the practical skills and experience I learn in work will give me an enormous advantage when I qualify.
