United Kingdom / Digital transformation consultant

Peter Slater

I have worked for one year and 10 months, my proudest achievement has been becoming a manager before the age of 30.

What attracted you to apply for a role with us?
To be a part of the most important projects in the world; to be directly responsible for contributing to the design of a future better world is a job I always needed.

What are the three things that make you look forward to coming into work each day?
Passionate and expert colleagues.
Freedom to innovate.
Awareness that anything I do at work could one day go onto have a major positive impact in peoples lives for years to come.

What’s your team like?
Open, honest, and really clear in what they are and are not passionate about, the transparency is a breath of fresh air.

What advice would you give to anyone looking to join the Mott MacDonald?
The chances are you are way better than you realise, get to the interview and then decide if you want the opportunity or not, don’t let the decision be taken out of your hands by not applying.

How long have you worked with us, and what has been your proudest achievement to date?
I have worked for one year and 10 months, my proudest achievement has been becoming a manager before the age of 30. I really didn’t think I was the type to manage people, then I realised there is no such thing as a right or wrong ‘type’ - managers come in all shapes and sizes.

What’s the work-life balance like?
I’m in control, which is the most important thing, sometimes I do like to work late or on the weekends, and sometimes I’m having a tougher patch and need to lean on my team mates more and look after my wellbeing. The knowledge that I have ultimate say in my own wellbeing is a weight off the mind!

If you were stranded on a desert island, what are the five things you would want to have with you?
- Multi Tool
- Book of herbs and plants, eating and medicine
- Self-help guide on how to sing (I’m an engineer, I can’t sing - I want to!)
- Combi weights cable machine
- A dog

Who is your inspiration?
Stephen Hawking. A hope that ultimately if everyone tries hard enough, we as humans, can permanently liberate ourselves from the battle for basic needs.
