My placement year consisted of 12 months working within the contracts department. Throughout my placement year I was involved in the Celebrity Millennium/Summit projects from start to finish. I was on site on both jobs for the full duration of the projects. In the office I had multiple responsibilities. I assisted the contracts managers in doing take offs, ordering materials, organising containers, organising labour and planning the programme.
The highlight of my placement year here at MJM Marine was the two dry docks I was on in Singapore and the Bahamas. Whilst the dry docks are constantly challenging, the experience and knowledge you gain from it is unbelievable and massively assists you in your role.
I would recommend MJM Marine to UU students. For those looking a challenge and something different than the normal main stream construction industry, MJM is the perfect place to learn, grow and test your ability. The marine industry is a fast paced, professional, intense and exciting place to be involved in and I would strongly recommend anyone to get involved in it with MJM.
I would tell placements or graduates to grab the opportunity and enjoy it and get stuck into it. The marine industry is an exciting place to learn and grow your skills and it isn’t like your normal construction site. Take the challenge and enjoy every minute of it.
