BSc Civil & Structural Engineering from School of Pedagogical and Technological Education, and MSc Civil and Structural Engineering from the University of Bradford

Moving from a country currently faced with severe economic challenges, here I found a safe, friendly and intriguing working environment. Since joining in 2014 as a graduate engineer within the Strategic Highways team in Chesterfield, I got involved in the detailed design of a high-profile project in the UK. It was finally time for me to put theory into practice after all those years in education. Working closely with experienced people helped me adjust faster and obtain an in-depth knowledge of the procedures and processes adopted.

The GDP provides a great opportunity to network with other graduates from various business lines across the UK. Seeking ways in which to develop professionally and improve on inherent attributes is the key to a progressive career in engineering. I have been appointed as the Graduate Company Champion for the Chesterfield office, responsible for distributing all ICE events tailored to graduates and students to the relevant parties. I have also taken the responsibility of organising monthly meetings that aim to bring all local graduates, technicians and apprentices together; including presentations, workshops and outdoor activities. On top of that, I volunteered to help promote engineering to a local primary school.
