Why did you choose to join Mott MacDonald?
I would like to use three words: engage, expand and empower – to explain why I chose to join Mott MacDonald. Mott MacDonald is one of the world's largest employee-owned companies with over 15,000 staff. Because of an employee-first principle, staff members are committed to contribute to the company at work, career-related training sessions and leisure campaigns. The engagement of Mott MacDonald is undoubtedly strong and solid. To expand myself is another reason for me to join this company. Mott MacDonald has principal offices in nearly 50 countries. These extensive business affairs allow me a wide range of opportunities to broaden my horizon. Last but not least, empowerment is my vision to be employed by Mott MacDonald. At Mott MacDonald, I can work with elites and learn from the experienced. This platform not only enhances my ability, but also enriches my life.
What is the best thing about your job/role?
At Mott MacDonald I never stop learning. There is always something new to learn. I am not only responsible for several accounting modules, I also assist in preparing financial and management reports. Furthermore, opportunity for comprehensive development was given to me by being involved with Mott MacDonald Beijing and Mott MacDonald Australia’s accounting operation. I went to the Adelaide office for around 3 months which was a great experience that I would never have imagined be possible!
How would you describe the culture of Mott MacDonald?
People are friendly, talented and professional. I have been given the opportunity to work with people from different countries and backgrounds. In a friendly workplace, I feel supported and valued. People are willing to share their knowledge and we can build good relationships outside the office as well.
Where have you travelled with Mott MacDonald?
I have travelled to Adelaide in Australia for 3 months to assist in reviewing the local accounting operation. During the journey, I worked well with the local team and learnt about how different businesses operate.
When you’re not in the office where can you be found?
You may find me in the swimming pool or fitness room. I take pleasure in doing exercise, which not only keeps me healthy, but also releases all my stress and worry. And more exercise means I can eat more food, which is great!
If you could only eat one food for a whole a day, what would it be?
I will definitely say “oats”. For me, oats are absolutely delicious, which have an impressive nutritional profile and support healthy digestion. The vital reason is oats can keep me feeling full during the day. I have them almost every morning!
