Jodie Lavender, Assistant Quantity Surveyor
I joined PiLON in 2019 as a project administrator, providing general administrative support and updating project trackers. Now I am an Assistant Quantity Surveyor working across a range of projects and within a developing role in the company.
Each day presents itself with a new opportunity for growth. The people are friendly, and colleagues happy to work together to achieve a team or project goal.
PiLON have supported me all the way through my career working for the company, whether it be day to day queries with a management team who are keen to share knowledge, to providing both in-house and external training. I am very grateful to have been offered the opportunity to study part time to progress within my role, having just completed an HNC in Construction and the Built Environment and already being offered to further my studies and undertake a BSc degree specialising in Quantity Surveying. This is proven valuable to not only my career progression but also my personal progression and qualifications held.
Adrian Ciobanu, Contracts Manager
I joined PiLON in 2009 as a painter and decorator. Since then, I have gained valuable experience managing site and commercial teams, which has led to my position as Contracts Manager.
I have grown and developed with PiLON throughout the years and am proud of my own personal accomplishments as well as those of the company. I have developed excellent relationships with my colleagues and our client partners and thoroughly enjoy working for a company that supports and invests in its staff. PiLON adapt and are flexible to the changing needs of our staff and have proven themselves as a company that cares, for example, during this cost of living crisis.
PiLON embraces a culture of developing individuals and promoting from within, and it’s not hard to see why many of my colleagues are long-term employees.
Nigel Marowa, Quantity Surveyor
I joined PiLON in February 2018 as an Assistant Quantity Surveyor within the Commercial department. I took the opportunity to join this company because I wanted to expand my knowledge and add value to a growing organisation. My role originally consisted of dealing with managing sub contractors applications and client valuations, supporting the Senior QS. Since my time at PiLON I have now progressed to a Quantity Surveyor and overlook 3 major clients.
Working with PiLON has enabled me to grow considerably and given me a number of different challenges which has allowed me to progress within my career. I enjoy that each day is different and I am able to make a positive impact to our clients tenants making sure their properties are a home. Throughout my time at PiLON I have been thrown into the deep end on many occasions which has meant that I have had to make decisions and this has enabled me to have more commercial and business acumen.
In addition, at PiLON we are a family and everyone is always prepared to play their part which overall contributes to the success of the company, this is a reason why I enjoy going to work each day.
PiLON have provided continuous support in helping me to get to the position that I am today. As they saw potential in my ability to deliver results and enabled me to attend regular training courses to expand my knowledge and understand changing trends within the industry. PiLON are constantly providing me with opportunities to grow and they offer frequent support and mentoring to ensure that I am able to progress within my own career path. Currently, I am working on getting my RICS chartership and becoming a chartered QS, which I wouldn’t have been able to do without the support of Pilon.
