What I enjoy the most about my job within Arcadis is the fact that since the first day I have been involved in client-facing roles and been given clear responsibilities. On a daily basis, as a Graduate Cost Consultant in the Commercial Buildings department, I assist Seniors and Partners in producing cost analysis, reports and advising on procurement strategies for high value development schemes in London. Clients and other parties come from all over the world, which makes my job more challenging and interesting.
At Arcadis we work hard, but play harder. The work environment is extremely friendly and everybody is very approachable. Social events are organized regularly to allow you to get to know colleagues in other departments or offices and boost some healthy sport competition among teams. Wednesday and Thursday nights at the free bar are not too bad either!
Besides, coming from an Economics, hence "non-technical", background, I am fully supported in pursuing a RICS accredited master's degree and completing my APC in order to become a chartered cost consultant within the end of the Graduate scheme.
This is a great opportunity for graduates, as you get the chance to develop not only your technical and academic skills, but also expand your network in the industry and grow as a professional.
