I graduated from University of Gloucestershire in 2008 with all the skills necessary to make a challenging but smooth transition from student to working life. I have since spent the majority of my career so far at Terence O’Rourke Ltd., a multi-disciplinary practice with planning, environmental and design specialisms. The practice has provided me with a wealth of experience across all work stages from inception to completion and for a wide variety of projects. I have also benefitted from working so closely with planning and other design disciplines and have found this broad grounding invaluable in the early stages of my career, particularly when on the Pathway to Chartership. I now continue to work on increasingly challenging and complex projects; my responsibilities growing with experience and knowledge. In a relatively short time, I have been given responsibility for both leading projects through planning and managing work on the ground. I look forward to a varied and fulfilling future in the field!
