My Apprenticeship Journey: Darren Saeed

My Apprenticeship Journey: Darren Saeed

We’re catching up with our apprentices across the Group as part of National Apprenticeship Week to learn more about them, their progress, and their future goals. Today we are speaking to Darren Saeed, who works as an Apprentice in Construction and Civils in RSS Infrastructure.

Hello Darren Saeed, what were you doing before you started working at RSS Infrastructure?

Before joining RSS Infrastructure, I worked in traffic management as a Traffic Marshall.

Have you ever worked in the rail/civils sectors before working at RSS Infrastructure?

I have never worked on the railway before, so everything is new.

What are your job role and responsibilities at RSS Infrastructure?

As apprentices, we are involved in many different aspects of the projects in Construction and Civils. We assist with the installation of RRAPs (Road and Rail Access Points) and erect fencing – mainly post and wire, post and rail and Palisade fencing. We have also done gate installations and erected hoarding around a site. I have also helped on a coper stone project.

What are your plans, and how will working at RSS Infrastructure help you achieve them?

I want to be able to run my projects and be in charge of a team. I want to learn more about construction and improve my hands-on skills. My main goal is to build up my skills and get as much experience as possible. This would also help me learn about other parts of the business and get to know the whole company better.

Thanks to Darren for taking some time to tell us about his apprenticeship journey so far.
