What attracted you to Cundall?
Cundall’s focus and emphasis on sustainability at the core of the business.
What are your first impressions?
Very friendly people, lovely working environment and people at all levels are easily approachable.
What have you been doing as part of your first few months at Cundall?
I have been doing pipework and ductwork design and calculations, as well as helping to manage deadlines by ensuring the right deliverables are issued each week. In addition to that, I have been attending seminars organised by both Cundall and external companies.
Are you enjoying working life (and how does it compare to your student days)?
Definitely enjoying it very much. Whilst I miss the wide variety of activities available to me as a student, as well as the free time I had, there are also lots of activities my colleagues take part in which help me feel included and stay active. If anything, I’m more encouraged to get out more often because of it! I also enjoy having a relatively less stressful time in the evenings because I haven’t got coursework deadlines looming over me anymore.
What are you most looking forward to over the next few months?
I look forward to picking up more skills and being able to do an even wider variety of tasks. I also look forward to taking on more responsibility on projects.
Do you have any helpful hints for someone who might be thinking of applying?
Show a genuine interest and passion in sustainability in your application and during the assessment centre. Don’t shy away from talking about yourself; try to be as open as you can but keep things relevant. Do some research on the company and the sector you’re applying to, as they will be very useful. Try to the best of your ability to show that you know what you’re talking about.
