Mott MacDonald won the Training and Development Award at the inaugural UK Rail Industry Awards.

Mott MacDonald’s railways team devised a graduate rotation programme designed to create a ‘talent pipeline’ of professionally qualified consultants who can work well in a multifunctional environment.

Railways needed to develop graduates with technical competence in their specialist area and a wider experience and appreciation of other aspects of Mott MacDonald’s business.

The graduate rotation programme was developed to provide railways’ graduates with experience in:

  • System level design, including simulation and modelling
  • Functional specialism
  • Multifunctional project work
  • Site work and project implementation
  • BIM/CAD/visualisation
  • Planning and programming
  • Preparation of bids and proposals
  • Financial and commercial fundamentals
  • Another section or overseas

Success criteria for the programme include:

  • Reducing the average time to chartership from 6-7 years to 4 years
  • Strengthening links between graduates and mentors
  • Reducing voluntary staff turnover
  • Maintaining logs of evidence of experience

Regular monitoring of the programme has shown that these goals are being achieved.
