Testimonials

  • Making an impact

    As an apprentice there's a perception, you're not going to have that much of an impact, but that’s not the case here. 6 weeks after joining, I was asked to lead on a technical demonstration for the client and senior stakeholders.
  • Supportive Environment

    I’ve developed not only as an engineer, but personally. My hard & soft skills have gone through the roof. I’m so much more confident, I’m delivering presentations in front of audiences I couldn’t have done a year ago. It’s such a supportive environment.
  • Learning and Development

    I joined straight from school. I'd always been interested in learning about how things work and how they were put together, and I enjoyed STEM. It’s a great company to work for, and I’ve made lots of good friends!
If you have energy and take the opportunities that come your way, you’ll really love working here, and you’ll be taken on an amazing journey. Everyone around you has confidence in you and helps you develop into a well-rounded, highly skilled professional that’s capable of taking on any challenge
