PaulaPaula McCloskey is currently on her years placement from Jordanstown working as a Student Quantity Surveyor with Sammon Chartered Surveyors.

At first Paula had the idea of pursuing a career in Town Planning but after spending time doing this through work experience she decided that it definitely wasn’t for her. Wanting to stay in the Construction Industry and also having always been interested in design, maths and geography, she decided to do Batchelor of Science Degree in Quantity Surveying at Jordanstown. This is a four year course, one of which is spent in a workplacement in the relevant field. This year out will gain Paula a diploma in Industrial Studies and this is also an accreditation towards her Degree. On completing her Degree Paula would like to do a further twelve months with Sammon Chartered Surveyors and then go through the “Chartered System” (RACS) and become a Chartered Surveyor.
