My Quest Experience
Thomas Hill went on a Quest experience from the UK to the U.S.A.
Why did I apply for a Quest
I applied for a Quest to New York because I was aware that the American market doesn’t have a strong Quantity Surveyor/Cost Consultant cohort. As our competitors in NY are integrating QS’s into their teams and their clients are beginning to appreciate the value they deliver I wanted to see if Arcadis could do the same, and if we could grow our own team here.
Highlight of my Quest experience
The highlights of my Quest experience were:
-Meeting members of the US Arcadis Manhattan, Long Island City and City of White Plain’s teams;
-Attending a presentation on Water resilience presented by Arcadis for TU Twente;
-Presenting a Lunch and Learn session.
My Quest in one word
Learnings and experiences I will apply to my day to day work
This Quest has helped me to develop my technical knowledge and build my international network. I have had the opportunity to meet some clients and am beginning to understand how Arcadis can embed a commercial team in the growing market.
“Our clients across all our sectors and markets tell us that collaboration, innovation, sharing knowledge, outcome focus and high quality consistent delivery are the attributes they value in their consultants.” I would therefore encourage others to get involved in a Quest to help become a stronger and more integrated global business.
Quest is an international transfer program which connects Arcadians from all over the world. Quest is sponsored by the Lovinklaan Foundation
