Our firm provides every opportunity to young professionals to develop as future leaders and I am thoroughly enjoying and utilising every moment.Ashwini Dharmarajan
I joined Turner & Townsend as a graduate in June 2017 and completed the 24 month graduate development programme in 2019. I then worked for the International O&G client on an interior corporate fit-out project of 109,000sqft spread over two floors. Currently, I’m working for a client leading in the aviation sector on a green field campus development, spread across 42.81 acres.
Q. Describe your typical day.
A. I usually start my day at 7am when I leave for site. Since I have to travel for almost 1.5 hours, I use that time to plan for my day ahead. I love to prepare a checklist of ‘to-do’ items and I feel happy at the end of the day when I strike them off! Sometimes I just listen to music and enjoy the early morning.
When I reach site, I start with my planned activities and prioritise them, as this helps me meet deadlines. I observe the works around me and learn as much as I can. I also work on our Chairman’s group challenge and we have healthy discussions and knowledge sharing. On some days, we have technical training on the PM/CM modules.
Q. What do you enjoy most about working at Turner & Townsend?
A. The best part about working at Turner & Townsend is the work environment and professional conduct. I feel very comfortable with my colleagues as we work collectively and help each other grow. I also thoroughly enjoy the social gatherings, parties and outings organised by Turner & Townsend, as we believe in work hard, party harder!
Q. How do you see your career progressing at Turner & Townsend?
A. I see myself moving up the corporate ladder at Turner & Townsend, with the different experiences and exposure that I am given. Working with colleagues across the globe, working on projects of different scales and sectors, gaining tremendous knowledge and at the same time developing a wide network of professionals.
