Have you been involved in education or training? I have been involved with some CPD and training courses related to WA/management procedures.
What secondments have been most interesting and why? I have only been on one secondment, which I have enjoyed. It’s a good team to work for and I get to work on some decent design and assessment schemes. I get to keep learning and expanding my knowledge as a bridge engineer in this role. Plus it’s not too far from home so that’s always a bonus.

I would recommend WA for a few reasons – the prospect of working for multiple big name firms being on your CV, the potential for promotion, the ability to grow as an individual and professionally is facilitated by the company, all staff have access to those up the ladder and generally we all have a ethos of working collectively and to each others benefit.
