Why your company?


"The reputation of the firm combined with the high-quality training scheme offered."
Graduate, Croydon
"It's one of only a few teams that work within the civil asset management field. The friendly staff and interesting project work throughout the company also convinced me as it allows for work on a range of large and complex tasks."
Graduate, Croydon
"Mott MacDonald is one of the biggest companies within the sector and I have always had positive experiences with it throughout my careers events and uni presentations."
Graduate, Glasgow
"As a large employee-owned company, it has an extra drive to look after its employees rather than just creating a big bottom line for external shareholders."
Graduate, Norwich
"The company works in sectors that I want to work in and seems to be able to offer a variety of projects and locations to work from, with lots of opportunity to develop my career how I want to. I applied to the usual competitors too but this was the offer I really wanted. I've had colleagues in previous jobs that used to work for MM and they'd impressed me. My short spell of work experience confirmed that I felt comfortable here."
Graduate, Cambridge
"There's the opportunity to specialise in modelling from day one. I also liked the structure and positive reviews of the graduate scheme as a whole and was impressed by the benefits (the retirement fund in particular)."
Graduate, Cardiff
"The global outlook and long history give the company a rich corporate memory from which to learn and improve upon. The multinational and large nature of the company also allows it to bid for large projects, even outside the country that your office resides in. The company values are very much aligned with my own and the company's eagerness to adopt the latest technology makes its approach to delivering projects exciting. The company also does a lot of work in emerging and developing economies, which also interested me."
Graduate, Croydon, London

Graduate, Peterborough
"The culture of the company and fact that the company employees are shareholders."
Graduate, Bristol
"Some companies in the sector that I work in have received a bad reputation for either carrying out unethical work or focusing on private motives as opposed to public benefits. Motts is not like this. If work is not beneficial or ethical, we will not bid for it. I was enticed to work at a company where I knew, without any doubt, that I was making a positive impact to the wider community."

Graduate, Derby

Graduate, Bristol
"Once I started working as an intern at Mott MacDonald I knew that the work being carried out in my division was the work that I wanted to do. There are a large number of opportunities to get out of the office and visit sites you're working on. Hearing about the graduate training scheme and the involvement managers and directors take in your development made me realise that getting chartered status would be made much easier with a strong team supporting."
Graduate, Glasgow
