Pros: flexi-time contract
Cons: no scope of personal development
Very forunate to have a job which is very specialized at such an early point in my career.
However internal progression seems few and far between for a recent graduate within the contract i am working in.
i am contracted to 38 hours per week, although i work over 40 most weeks and log the excess as flexi-time which i can take off when i chose, which – more... is a real bonus in balancing a good work/life balance
I have learned a vast amount of knowledge into all aspects of highway engineering in the year i have worked at the country.
My work colleagues are very friendly and helpful and we all strive to deliver projects on time and under budget which makes the work place very enjoyable for me, and the team.
The hardest part of the job is that some schemes can be repetetive, but this is mainly down to the needs of the client at that time and the allocated work load towards the end of the financial year.
The most enjoyable part of the job is having the opportunity to visit the site and to see the projects you design come to life. – less
