Construction Management



Adam Toal

I joined the McAleer & Rushe graduate development programme in 2015 after completeing a Construction Engineering and Management degree.

The initial few months as a graduate engineer were very hands on, I worked very closely with the projects’ Site Manager and Project Manager and I quickly realised that the experience I had gained on my placement and theory from my final year studies held me in good stead to take on more responsibility.

Initially I was involved in setting out, working along with my mentor meant I was able to hit the ground running, I then moved on to other aspects of the project and became heavily involved in the façade works.

I learned a lot in those initial months and very soon found that I was more confident and willing to take on tasks solely, which I was given the opportunity to do. The training provided by McAleer & Rushe has been brilliant and essential for me to carry out my job. In my first twelve months I undertook training in Temporary Works, Site Supervision, Scaffold Inspection, H&S and Streetworks.

On a daily basis I attended Safety Huddles with all the on-site contractors as well as weekly Site management meetings.

I particularly enjoyed this as I felt fully integrated and part of the team and informed of the technical details while gaining the confidence to participate in a challenging but rewarding construction project.

Being able to work on the project from start to completion gave me the best introduction to a career as an engineer.

It allowed me to experience a variety of challenges and the opportunity to learn from them and carry forward to my next project.

I have now progressed to a Senior Engineer role on another prestigious project and I relish the fact that I have fast tracked my career through hard work and determination in such a short period of time.

McAleer & Rushe recognised my drive to succeed and have gave me every opportunity to further my career through support at all levels.
