Testimonials from Former Graduates on the RIAI / DES Training Scheme

I thoroughly enjoyed my time in the DES and found that I got a great variety of experience across all work stages. I felt very lucky to gain so much site experience as a graduate and felt I learnt a lot throughout my 3 years spent there. I would go back in a heartbeat-it’s a great place to work!

“In my three years on the RIAI-DES scheme, I gained the widest range of experience of all my peers.  I was involved in everything from forming briefs, conceptual and detail design, the development and presentation of feasibility studies, all across a number of projects around the country.  All of this in an environment that is genuinely interested in its staff’s professional development.  This is much more than just a job opportunity.”
