Peterlee-based, Asbestos Audit, has announced the appointment of Brandon Williams as trainee surveyor.
Brandon, 26, from Washington, was a CAD technician at the company for two years before taking up his new role.
Brandon’s new position highlights the company’s commitment to training and retaining its staff and he has already achieved a BHOS P402, one of two surveying qualifications recognised within the asbestos industry.
Asbestos Audit operates across the UK, providing UKAS accredited asbestos surveys, inspections, removal and testing. The company also has a rapidly growing demolition division, that includes salvage and soft strip out.
Brandon, said: “I joined the company two years ago as a CAD technician and I am really pleased to now progress as a trainee surveyor and work under the supervision of Ryan Moorhead, technical and quality manager.
“As well as learning the theory, I am picking up great experience working on live projects, shadowing a member of the team and learning how surveys are conducted. I have also assisted clients with asbestos-related issues.
“I am also learning from the management team, who take clients through every step of the survey process, ensuring they are compliant with the current Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012. I want to develop my knowledge and expertise and to progress from a trainee to a qualified surveyor as quickly as I can.”
Ben Pickard, managing director at Asbestos Audit, said: “Brandon’s promotion is well deserved and just reward for his can-do attitude. He is ambitious and committed and we are delighted to invest in his future.
“Creating a strong company culture where we recruit the best people is crucial. We have built a great reputation within our field, resulting in us being 5 star rated in the locations across the UK where we have bases. This is achieved by hiring the very best people.
“2023 is proving to be a strong year for us and we have seen growth across numerous divisions of the business. As a result, we have invested heavily to increase our share of the market.
“As we head towards 2024, we foresee further growth and we will be making some big announcements in the coming months.”
