This meeting”will have allowed students to discover all the skills that surveyors must call on to rethink and promote such iconic monuments as the Iron Lady and the Trocadero as part of a large-scale development project“, continues the EMB.”Immersive events of this type allow us to show that the expert surveyor is today a committed and central player in the organization of international events such as the 2024 Olympic Games. This is a campaign that allows us to to attract the attention of young talents in a very tense recruitment context. Today all surveyors’ firms are looking to hire and nearly 3,000 positions are to be filled throughout France.“, declares the president of the superior council of the EMB.
