“My passion for Safety started in the forces.  With flight safety the consequences of getting it wrong can be catastrophic. Making the transition to Bentley's was easy as the company ethos shares much of the same values that I'd become accustomed to. 
“Values like 'commitment' to a world class safety strategy, having 'respect' for one another, 'integrity' when it comes to safety leadership, and recognising that a team of people working with a unity of purpose can walk through walls together. Some of the skills I'd developed are well suited to a QES role including assessing risk, having an attention to detail, communicating daily to a diverse group of people and being calm in a crisis, and getting up early! Bentley's recognise the value of investing in their people and providing an environment where people can thrive.” 
Simon Hesketh, QES Advisor. 

“I joined JNB after 10 years’ service in the British Army as a Recovery Mechanic within The Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers.  
“The transition from the Army to JNB has been relatively easy, working within the team or by myself, good communication and planning skills are something that have been taught to me throughout my army career.  These same abilities are needed working as a Quantity Surveyor with job specific skills being taught to me by the team as we go.
The people within JNB are great, from the lads on site, the office staff, all the way up to the directors.  It feels like we are all pulling in the same direction looking for success as a team delivering sustainable projects and value for our client - the office atmosphere and regular social functions really make us feel like a tight group.”
 Thomas Smith, Quantity Surveyor.
