NBS welcomes new talent with graduate and student placement roles

Newcastle-based NBS welcomed a recent graduate and two North East university placement students last month.

The new additions join the diverse community of former student placement and graduates who are now permanent members of the 180-strong NBS team.

Grady Finley and Jonny Hocke join the company from Northumbria University, where they are studying Geography and Geography with Environmental Management respectively.

Both have been given year-long placements within the market research team and are based at the newly refurbished Old Post Office, at St Nicholas Street.

Josh Dawson, originally from Newcastle, has joined the company from York St John’s University where he studied Computer Science, as a graduate software developer.

NBS Chief Executive, Richard Waterhouse, said: “We always want to attract the next generation of talent to our business; over the last six years we have recruited 54 roles from graduate and student placements, and we don’t intend to stop there.

“If you’re willing to work hard and you want to shape a successful career for yourself, NBS will give you that opportunity and help you along the way.”

Jane Hibbert studied Building Design Management at Northumbria University and came to NBS on a year’s placement during her studies.

Now heading into her seventh year of employment with the company as a senior BIM author, Jane reflects on how those at NBS have helped shape her career: “Coming into the company as a young professional, the experience was invaluable in helping me progress and complete my final year of studying.

“Since then the support I have received in helping me to shape my early career has been fantastic which is testament to the fact that I’m now a senior member of my team; who are a set of talented and amazing people!”

Claire and Kirsty joined the company in 2013 as graduate interface designers, both being promoted in 2015 to permanent members of the team.

NBS is the UK’s leading provider of construction information and knowledge management services; developing a range of software based specification products, supported by the latest technical knowledge from its in-house team of industry experts for architecture, construction, design and engineering services.
