Civil Engineer Graduate

National Highways

“I joined National Highways in September 2020 as a Graduate Civil Engineer. Since joining the company, I had the opportunity to work in different parts of the organisation. My work has been varied, where I can tailor my development in the specific direction, I’d like it to go in. The graduate scheme has given me a great breadth of knowledge and experience of working towards my chartership with the Institution of Civil Engineers.

National Highways is a huge organisation, I expected it to have a wide range of opportunities and I wasn’t disappointed at all, it has exceeded my expectations! There is always something for everyone and you will never run out of new things to try out. It is a diverse company so there is a chance for everyone to move around, try out different things and pick exactly what they like doing. The culture of the company has probably been the best thing for me as it had helped me settle into my first job easily. Everyone here is very approachable and helpful, which creates a very nurturing and encouraging environment in which to develop myself. I would recommend the Civil Engineering Graduate Scheme to anyone interested.”
