"Friendly, helpful, a good balance between work and social aspects, with a great sports and social club."

Why did you decide to join Mott MacDonald?

I worked for Mott MacDonald during the summer breaks at university. It was a great opportunity to experience what it was like working for the firm. I particularly appreciated the opportunity to get immersed in a project and contributing to the final output, despite only being a summer placement student. It showed Mott MacDonald was committed to retaining and developing all staff, whatever grade they may be. I was therefore happy to accept a job offer and bursary prior to my final year at university.

What is the best thing about your role?

I am fortunate enough to have travelled extensively in my career to date and enjoy experiencing the culture, diversity and heritage of many of the places I visit. To date, I have been to Brazil, New Zealand, the Bahamas, Dubai, Greece, Hungary, Spain, Ireland, and the Netherlands.

How would you describe the culture of Mott MacDonald?

Friendly, helpful, a good balance between work and social aspects, with a great sports and social club.

What has been your most memorable project?

The 'New Providence Road Improvement Project' was particularly memorable. I was seconded to a construction site in the Bahamas, where I worked as an assistant resident engineer on a road and utility upgrade. My initial 6-month post, turned into 22 months and I relished every moment of my time there; obtaining invaluable site experience and meeting and socialising with the locals. Everyone was so welcoming, which is probably why I was happy for my secondment to be extended!

What has been your favourite Mott MacDonald social event?

Outdoor karting at Thruxton. I’m a bit of a petrol head!

If you could only eat one food for a whole a day, what would it be?

Pineapple - it’s refreshing and sweet - and reminds me of holidays!
