What are the Best and Worst things about your job?
The project work I do is specifically within the Maritime team, and I have found I enjoy working and learning about the various coastal infrastructure around Scotland and the Scottish Isles.
The variety of interesting and challenging work keeps things fresh.
My colleagues are all lovely and supportive and create a great environment for the learning you take on as part of the apprenticeship, balancing the work/education I have received.
It is a minor thing, but working within a Civil Engineering Consultancy company means you may not spend a lot of time on site. This is team/project dependent really, so there are many variables that have led to me having relatively limited time on site.
Time on site sets you up for success on future projects and allows you to gain a better grasp of the works you're doing, so not always having this opportunity can feel somewhat like a hindrance.
What is the annual salary for this role?
Starting salary: £15,000 - £17,000
Current salary: £19,000 - £21,000
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
As with any application, doing due research into the company and position you are applying for.
Setting aside time to complete your application without distraction.
Reading over the application once it is complete to correct any mistakes.
Do you have any interview tips?
Similar to the application, take time to prepare by researching the role you're applying for, and the company itself.
Consider why the position interests you and where you hope it will lead you in the long run.
Consider the skills you can bring to the table, and highlight areas of interest you wish to develop.
