Ryan Geldard
Assistant Site Manager, BAM Construction Ltd

BSC (Hons) Construction Management, 2013

In my career so far I have been extremely fortunate to work on some of Leeds' most iconic and modern buildings, including Leeds Arena - the new 13,500 capacity music venue.

Ryan Geldard went to Bruntcliffe High School in Morley. He studied a 2 year BTEC in Construction at Leeds College of Building before starting work as Junior Site Manager for Lotus Construction where he spent a year, before moving to BAM Construction LTD. Ryan’s decision to choose a BTEC in Construction rather than traditional A Level’s was based on employability, believing that an education specific to construction would enable him to find an employer. On joining BAM Construction Ryan chose to complete a BSc Honours in Construction Management, a part-time, five-year course with BAM’s full support.

Modern housing professionals are key contributors in a wide range of public policy careers. The region has plenty of homes which many housing authorities manage so there is plenty of demand for professionals in this industry. You can gain employment developing sustainable communities, regeneration projects, neighbourhood management and design, and other wider project management or legal issues.
