Morgan Sindall was offering an administrative work experience opportunity on a project based in Oxford. Mohamed saw this as a good opportunity to get some experience with a recognised leading engineering contractor.
Mohamed says, “During my work experience placement, I got involved in a variety of interesting tasks and was given plenty of opportunities to gain skills and aid my professional development as a civil engineer. The tasks I was involved in gave me an all-round experience of what contractors do on site and increased my knowledge and confidence.”
At the end of the eight-week placement, Mohamed made it clear that he would like to pursue his career with Morgan Sindall.
Andrew Beadle, Project Manager, spoke with his colleagues to recommend Mohamed, and learned that there was an engineering opportunity at a project in Leeds.
Mohamed jumped at the chance to apply, despite the change of location. His application was successful.
He started employment, and is enrolled on Morgan Sindall’s graduate development programme. Mohamed will also shortly start work on his Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) professional registration.
Stef Wilson, Project Manager on the M1 project, said, “We are always keen to foster and retain talent, and Mohamed had already demonstrated his enthusiasm and commitment. Through good communication, collaboration across our business and timing, the circumstances were favourable for Mohamed and for Morgan Sindall.”
