5. How well organised/structured is your programme?


The scheme is relatively well structured, it is clear they are still working on improving it as problems are identified

6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?


From the college theres is limited support, as well as a lacking plan of instruction. Often being set assignments on topics they have not taught or have not finished yet.

6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?


All work is very well supported by other members of the team if I need it, and if im happy with it they trust me to get on with it without checking constantly.

7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?


The salary is a poor point for mott macdonald(After the first year), not being competitive to many other companies(As you progress with sklill and time), many of which are a lot smaller. The locations is good being outside of central London. Living costs are negligible.. as the salary doesn't really leave enough for rent, so the option is to stay at home while training is continuing. This is offset though for me by the interesting and varied workload.

8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?


There are lots of STEM events with work that are made available as well as many work socials. Although I have very little time outside of work free due to being a Volunteer for air cadets

9b. Why? *

Because it a very well respected company and the workload combined with the experience is a great start to a career

10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to Mott MacDonald? *

Try and get as involved as possible with more than one team and that salary will not make a significant change until all training is done
