The Water Supply Challenge
The Water Supply Challenge Graduates from Mott MacDonald and 4D visiting a school in Seaford to run the schools’ yearly maths challenge. Over a day 140 students aged 9-11 took part in the design, cost and construction of a water supply network.

Why did you choose to join Mott MacDonald?

After two summer placements with Mott MacDonald which I enjoyed I applied as a graduate. For me the key pull is the company ethos, I think the atmosphere is great for young professionals – everyone is approachable and willing to help, you can really expand your perspective as there are lots of highly experienced and qualified professionals happy to teach.

What is the best thing about your job?

The people I work with, and opportunities within one company, you can move location and roles, getting greater experience.

How would you describe the culture of Mott MacDonald?

Inclusive, approachable and enthusiastic.

Where have you travelled with Mott MacDonald?

So far I’ve been from Cambridge, where I did one of my summer placements and started working in potable water, to Brighton where I was based on site at working in foul water and I am now based in Reading as part of the developer services team. I would like to work abroad in the near future.

When you’re not in the office where can you be found?

Swimming, sunning and occasionally drinking cider.

If you could have any super power what would it be?

The ability to move things with my mind - I’d never have to get up to make a cup of tea again!
