In today’s world, the cost of living and education continue to rise, making it increasingly difficult for students to make ends meet. At Intelligent FS, we understand the importance of providing support to those who need it most. That’s why we’re proud to announce our partnership with Salford University, which allows us to support two students who will benefit greatly from the financial support.
Meet Esha Ahmed, a first-year Construction Project Management student. Coming from a family of construction professionals, Esha has a passion for the built environment and a keen interest in the transformation of Manchester’s city landscapes. She has a bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award and a Philip Renold Award for community service and is currently working towards her Gold Duke of Edinburgh. Esha is also eager to gain hands-on experience, and we look forward to welcoming her on a live Intelligent FS site soon.
Next, we have Kamila, a first-year Quantity Surveying student at Salford University. Despite facing significant hardship with family illness, Kamila has battled on and remains an accomplished student with plans for starting a mature student society. Kamila is also eager to gain practical knowledge on some of Intelligent FS’ construction sites, and we’re glad to be able to support her in this endeavour.
At Intelligent FS, we’re committed to creating opportunities for the next generation and supporting the future leaders of our industry. We’re excited to be working with Esha and Kamila and look forward to seeing all they will achieve in the future.
However, this is not the first opportunity we have been able to give to a talented young person. Damian joined the business on 30th May 2022 as a Graduate Quantity Surveyor, also studying with Salford University. With no real world experience in the work place, Damian has quickly become an integral member of the team, supporting large scale projects in one of the UKs most important areas – cladding remediation for fire safety. Damian’s rapid success in both adding value and joining the team, was one of the drivers that led owners Adam Gallagher and Rob Williams to extend the relationship with Salford to support two scholars.
This is a huge support of talented local people, and we could have left it there, but Adam and Rob wanted to do more and have just released an advert into Salford university for two, 1 year placements for Year 2 Quantity Surveyor students. We are tremendously excited to be working with this highly gifted pool of individuals, a real testament to Salford University and their teaching staff.
