Abbie's job involves designing infrastructure to enhance public life. This involves calculations, creating drawings and bridge inspections, working alongside professionals putting training into practice.

Exposure to a wide range of projects

Since Abbie joined AECOM, she has been exposed to a wide variety of exciting projects - one being the new Manchester Airport Relief Road. "I got the opportunity to work on the early stages of the A6 MARR project and was excited to see it through to the end, watching my designs become a reality. Job satisfaction is a key advantage working for AECOM - the ability to walk past a structure and know you’ve been involved with it is an amazing feeling," reflects Abbie.

Impressive training

Training is paramount at AECOM and employees are encouraged to participate in-house training towards chartership as well as external Institute of Chartered Engineering courses. In addition, AECOM's Graduate Development Programme courses provide a great opportunity to network with other graduates and develop key technical and personal skills to help you with career progression."The graduate network also organises social events like squash leagues, cycling events and social gatherings which have been great for me as I was new to the area." explains Abbie. "And AECOM's people are incredibly friendly, and thankfully no question is ever a stupid question."
