At Opus, the thing I value most is the people I work with. From graduate to director level, everyone is extremely welcoming and encouraging, and genuinely wants to see you succeed in your career. It makes working at Opus that much more enjoyable.

My role is Graduate Structural Engineer and as such no two days are the same. Some days my role is office based and I’ll be undertaking structural design work, and others require me to be carrying out site inspections. It’s this variety that creates ultimate job satisfaction for me.

Not only have I been offered multiple opportunities to develop my own skills and training since joining as a graduate, but I have also taken on the role of ‘Global e-Training Champion’ for the Fareham office. The role primarily looks at offering AutoCAD related self-learning courses and managing all the participants, helping them to progress with their training. The role has helped to prove to myself and others that I am capable of taking charge and handling management positions, whilst still being at a relatively early stage in my career.

I really enjoy giving back to others and seeing them learn; something that is especially rewarding when I have helped at careers fairs for young pupils. I enjoy being able to pass on what I’ve learnt, and to see pupils genuinely interested in engineering and what Opus do means so much to me.
