Quest is an international transfer program which connects Arcadians from all over the world. Quest is sponsored by the Lovinklaan Foundation. Every week we are highlighting one of the stories our employees who went on an exchange. In this blogpost we cover the Quest story of Jan Jurcicek who traveled from Prague, in the Czech Republic, to the London office in the UK.
“My Quest experience was just AWESOME!!!!”
Why did I apply for a Quest
My name is Jan Jurcicek and I am from Prague in the Czech Republic. I applied for my Quest in the beginning of the year with the intention to exchange knowledge and experience among financial institutions, lenders and investor companies in London and Prague. In addition, I hoped to strengthen the relationship and cooperation between our subsidiary operating companies.
Highlight of my Quest experience
The local team was very open to mutual cooperation and allowed me to join and observe several projects, including Development monitoring, Technical Due Diligence, Reinstatement Cost Assessment and historical site restoration projects.
Learnings and experiences
During my exchange, I learned the processes for both the value proposition and project delivery, including how to apply health and safety policies. If you are considering to participate in a Quest experience, my advice would be to make sure you know what you want to learn and what you want to share with others beforehand. And most importantly, be open to new things!
