After graduating in 2012, I was eager to begin putting theory into practice. Croudace Homes has given me the opportunity to use my knowledge and skills to gain experience in a professional environment while simultaneously providing me with the support needed to further my training and development.

Having completed my placement and finished my degree; I am now back working for Croudace Homes in the Land Department in Letchworth. I was given a great deal of responsibility during my placement and was able to gain vital and valuable experience for my final year of university and the rest of my working career.

Working with the experienced professionals at Croudace during my placement year has proved to be an invaluable experience. My time spent on site has given me the opportunity to apply the theoretical knowledge I have gained at university, take on genuine responsibility and gain a much better overall understanding of the construction process and the industry as a whole.
