Why did you decide to join Mott MacDonald?
Mott MacDonald has a great reputation as an employer and my potential future managers and colleagues really sold me on their desire to bring in fresh faces and add to a wide variety of skill-sets in delivering some really interesting and diverse projects.
What is the best thing about your role?
Being involved in every aspect of the lifecycle from business development to project management and working on a range of projects from those on the ground to the ones up in space.
How would you describe the culture of Mott MacDonald?
There is a great mix of people here; leaders, innovators, walking encyclopaedias; everybody brings something to the table and there is always plenty to take away from it. People are willing to teach and equally willing to learn, even out of hours if you have the time for after-work refreshments.
How would you describe your role and responsibilities to friends or family?
Researcher, analyst, salesman, speaker, author, student, expert, project manager, diplomat. Or most likely just “consultant”.
Are you involved with any charities or do any volunteer work?
I am on the committee for the Institute of Physics London & South East. This allows me to engage with members of the physics community and promote the practical as well as academic applications of the subject. We organise events in schools and universities and I endeavour to involve businesses within the region, including Mott MacDonald, to demonstrate the range of careers that use physics in some form.
If you won the lottery, what would be the first thing you would buy?
A studio flat in London.
