United Kingdom / Railways / Assistant engineer

Victoria Sutherland

Victoria felt very proud in completing the Great North Run.

"Diverse, progressive, positive, communicative, international with a wide knowledge base."

Why did you decide to join Mott MacDonald?

For me, the real draw was Mott MacDonald’s reputation for delivering a variety of excellent work in different sectors, as well as the opportunities to work on both national and international projects.

What is the best thing about your role?

I work on a varied range of projects and I find it rewarding to see work that I have done come to fruition and benefit society. As part of my role on the railways ‘Graduate Rotation programme’ I spent nearly a year on secondment to the Mott MacDonald Malaysia office which has incentivised me to pursue further overseas prospects.

How would you describe the culture of Mott MacDonald?

Diverse, progressive, positive, communicative, international with a wide knowledge base.

What has been your most memorable project?

Being part of the team undertaking the design for high speed 2 phase 2 West Midlands to Manchester and West Midlands to Leeds was a real highlight in my early career. Working on such a high profile project gave me a responsibility both to the team as well as future generations – non-typical of a recent graduate.

What is your favourite past time?

Sports of almost every kind: running, netball, tennis, hockey, rowing, watersports, diving, yoga. Mott MacDonald has a lively sports and social club that organise an annual sports day where offices battle it out. My trophy from the 2013 sports day for “Female Mott-Athlete of the Year” now sits proudly on my desk… as my pencil pot!

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

Salted egg squid – I was addicted to it while on placement in Malaysia!
