Where the STEM jobs are
Gradcracker works here's the proof
"Job satisfaction is a key advantage with this job; the ability to walk past a structure and know you’ve been involved with it is an amazing feeling"
MEng (Hons) at Edinburgh University in Civil Engineering
My job involves designing infrastructure that will enhance public life, this involves calculations, creating drawings and bridge inspections; working alongside professionals putting training into practise.
I joined AECOM in July 2014 and since then I have been lucky enough to be exposed to a variety of projects; one being the new Manchester Airport Relief Road (A6 MARR). I got the opportunity to work on the early stages of this project and I am excited to see it through to the end; watching my designs become reality. Job satisfaction is a key advantage with this job; the ability to walk past a structure and know you’ve been involved with it is an amazing feeling.
Training is paramount in AECOM with both in house training towards chartership and external ICE courses which you are encouraged to go to. In addition GDP courses are a great two day opportunity to network with other graduates and develop key technical and personal skills to help you with your career.
The office staff are incredibly friendly and no question is ever a stupid question. The Graduate network organises squash leagues, cycling events and social events which was great for me as I was new to the area.
