Very conscientious, hardworking and professional. Everyone was very friendly and helpful.
What’s the best thing you’ve learnt about Mott MacDonald (during the recruitment process or since you’ve joined)?
Its global multidisciplinary capability that presents many opportunities. It has a strong focus on safety and looking after its staff.
How would you describe your role and responsibilities to friends or family?
A leader and senior manager directing a team that is responsible for asset management and technical design associated with the strategic road network in the North West around Great Manchester and Merseyside. It is enjoyable and rewarding (most of the time) but hard work and long hours.

I enjoy getting out of the city walking in the countryside or fell walking, particularly the Lake District, and get out as often as I can. I also enjoy rock music and attending concerts.

A long holiday to Vietnam, Cambodia, South Korea and other surrounding countries; travelling business class and staying in 5 star hotels of course.
