Alfie Richardson

Graduate Electrical Engineer

"The project variety impressed and excited me as no two years working for Jacobs would be the same."

Your Name: Alfie Richardson
Your Job Title: Graduate Electrical Engineer
Your Sector: MEP, City & Places

What attracted you to Jacobs?

The fact that Jacobs is undertaking projects that are tackling the world's critical issues and is focused on innovation and sustainable solutions.

The Jacobs graduate development programme attracted me, as it ensured the training I would be receiving would allow me to progress within the engineering sector, supporting me on my way to achieve chartered status.

What did you like about the recruitment process?

The recruitment process was enjoyable. The assessment day was engaging, especially the introductory presentation about Jacobs. The group activities allowed the graduates to work together to tackle a real-life issue and present the findings to the other graduate groups.

What project are you working on?

I am currently working on the DTUP (Piccadilly Line Upgrade) Project at the Northfields & Cockfoster Depot, where I have been involved in the lighting and fire alarm systems.

What is your working day like?

My working day starts off with a team meeting at 8:50 which allows everyone to discuss their daily activities, as well as raise any questions and ask for support and guidance. Once the meeting has finished, project work commences. Recently I have been utilising DIAlux & PDF editor software for the DTUP project. Thursdays there is a team quiz, which allows everyone to have fun with some pop culture questions.

What impresses you most about the organisation?

The variety of projects that Jacobs undertakes, from large mainstream projects like HS2 to building projects. The project variety impressed and excited me as no two years working for Jacobs would be the same.
