Edwin Lockerbie - BA Geography

Now works as: Management Trainee

Now works for: United Living

Studying Geography has prepared me well for a career in Construction and Housing. The degree provided a large amount of independence and choice, I was able to study modules with the History and Social Sciences departments, as well as free evening classes in German.

United Living provides refurbished and new build living solutions, primarily for social housing, we have a strong social gain focus. My new role for United Living will place me around the Bid, Estimating and Community Investment teams before moving to Operations, where I will work on the £35 million refurbishment of the famous Balfron Tower. United Living are investing in my future by placing me on the award winning GEM programme whilst I study for a level 4 Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH) qualification.

Working with the Llangefni Community Partnership as part of the Final Year Settlement Systems module, gave me invaluable and marketable skills in delivering a community investment project. Furthermore, the advice received during the writing of my dissertation is being used now in my role with the Bid team.
