RAMISH SHAHBAZ

Work experience at Smith & Newton Architects

'I was able to find out the life of an architect, working on multiple projects. I found out that being an architect doesn't mean sitting in an office all day, but also visiting sites and analysing them to provide the best service.
Don't be shy to ask questions and make sure you keep asking questions. Try to make friends with the colleagues and keep close to your supervisor so they get to know you better.'

You will get the chance to shadow a Director into the workings of what types of properties are purchased for the group, learn about the daily maintenance and issues that arise managing a vast property portfolio, accompany our lettings manager and learn what lies behind the renting of a property or visit some high quality property developments."
