Ryan Geldard
Assistant Site Manager, BAM Construction Ltd

BSC (Hons) Construction Management

Read more

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.

You will have a number of career paths open to you - neighbourhood management and design, regeneration projects and the development of sustainable communities are all suitable areas for a modern housing professional. 

  • Housing Officer
  • Community Regeneration Officer
  • Development Project Officer
