Our Insight

We really liked the culture and people at WSP. There was a real emphasis on learning and development and it was obvious to us after talking to the graduates that they really bought into that. They were also willing to go the extra mile, for example, promoting STEM careers to schools and colleges in their own time. 

Watch/listen to the videos and podcasts below to get a real insight into WSP.

We often visit our advertisers, spending a full day touring their facilities, speaking to their graduates/interns and working with their recruiters on content for their Company Hubs.

We can get a real ‘insight’ into their working environment, their culture and the things they are working on. We also learn about their recruitment processes and the things each company looks for in their ideal candidates.

It’s useful stuff for you to know if you’re considering applying to them – so we thought we’d share it!
