Archie Jones Quantity Surveyor Apprentice:

Having seen that MJ Rooney were Employer of the Year at the 2018 Greenwich Business Awards, I really wanted to join the team. I’ve been here for nearly a year and I’ve seen my written and verbal communication skills get a lot better. I’ve also developed time management skills which will help me in my future career.

Dermot Rooney Director of MJ Rooney:

We see apprentices as a core part of any business. There’s a lot of young people and people changing careers who want to gain more skills before coming in to the industry. We’re aiming for 90% of our team to have NVQs ensuring that people have the right level of training and qualifications for the job.
