Graduate Project Manager

"I’ve really enjoyed the start of my journey at Mott MacDonald, it really didn’t take long to get to know everyone and fit into the team"

What has your experience at Mott MacDonald been like so far?

I’ve really enjoyed the start of my journey at Mott MacDonald, it really didn’t take long to get to know everyone and fit into the team. Everyone was extremely friendly and supportive which is important, especially for a graduate.

Describe some of the work you have been involved in

So far, I have worked on some school extension projects which has been very interesting. I have attended stakeholder meetings and built many client relationships which has been brilliant experience for me.

What’s your work-life balance like?

The work-life balance is one of the attractive benefits of working here. There is never any pressure to stay beyond the standard office hours. If I do find myself still in the office slightly later than usual, my manager will often encourage me to leave for the day and start fresh tomorrow.

The office environment is friendly and relaxed and there is always someone here to provide support and advice. We often have social events which take place, such as a pub quiz, bowling, ping-pong, go-karting, and golf days, so there is a lot to get involved in.
