I’d never even stepped foot on a construction site before I started working here, but my sister works as a planner and encouraged me to look into construction.

Lizzie is a commercial management trainee for Wates, and is working on the Wembley Park site.

I applied to Wates through a graduate scheme, and now I’m training to be a quantity surveyor. I’ve been at the Wembley Park site since September 2015 and I’ve seen the site go from a hole in the ground to the vibrant place that it is now – and that’s really exciting.
