“My career started out with a stone masonry apprenticeship many decades ago. It gave me the start I needed and invaluable experience on the tools, before I moved over to drafting. I am now a Head of Design at Szerelmey, but I still like carving a piece of stone in my spare time!”

Mark Walden, Head of Design

“I joined Szerelmey Restoration on a placement year for my degree course in Quantity Surveying and commercial management. I have contributed to a variety of projects working alongside estimators, contract managers and quantity surveyors. Getting this hands-on experience has taught me new things whilst consolidating what I already knew and has kickstarted my career as a Quantity surveyor by helping me focus on what I really want to be doing.”

Kai Davies, Industrial Placement

“I joined Szerelmey in 2005 as an apprentice stone restorer with no clear career path in mind. The apprenticeship was brilliant, it set me on a path within the industry that I am still on today. I have now been working at the company for 18 years, currently as a Contracts Manager.”
