"Working at Heathrow airport was exciting to me due to the scale of the project involved and the fast-paced nature of the processes involved whilst working within a live airport."

Why did you choose Mott MacDonald?

Mott MacDonald’s reputation as a major global consultancy and the fact it is employee-owned.

What’s your graduate scheme like?

I joined with a group of seven graduates and was put on a rotation programme. This was set up in order to allow us all to gain the experience in each different sector whilst gaining continuous project experience both within an office environment and out on site. Also being based in the client office meant that client contact was an everyday occurrence which is a rare opportunity to be given on a graduate scheme.

What was it like to start formal employment after many years at university?

Starting formal employment after uni is a real kick starter into your career when you have to start applying what you have learnt into practice on live projects and seeing the results at the end of it.

What’s the best thing about working at Mott MacDonald?

The best thing about working for Mott MacDonald for me is the people and I’m sure everyone who works here would agree.

What’s the most exciting project you’ve been involved in?

Working at Heathrow airport was exciting to me due to the scale of the project involved and the fast-paced nature of the processes involved whilst working within a live airport.

What are you most proud of?

What I deem as an achievement so far would be the completion of my MSc course which is due in September.

What support did you get whilst you were working towards your professional qualification?

I am currently undertaking my MSc course in order to begin my professional qualification, my line manager has been very supportive throughout this process.

What’s the Mott MacDonald Academy about?
