Growing up, I was always interested in maths, science and problem-solving. A career in engineering seemed to be the perfect combination of all my passions. On top of that, I wanted to do something that would have an impact on the world around me in a way that benefits society and the environment so here I am today!
Metis struck me as an organisation that was different to the generic ‘faceless corporation’ in the sense that they take special pride in their work and their client relationships to ensure their projects provide real value to society. It was also clear I would have real responsibilities from day one, allowing me to experience all aspects of the industry, from client meetings, to overcoming unique constraints, while fast-tracking my development as an Engineer.
I have been involved in various projects that make London’s streets safer for motorists, cyclists, and pedestrians alike – from the early stages of the project, through to detailed design.
The work environment at Metis is different to my previous experience due to the trust placed in you from the first day. It is a place where you can learn from your experiences on various projects with guidance from some of the best minds in the industry while developing as an Engineer.
My most rewarding project I have worked on is the design of a memorial on Braham Street. Seeing the early stages of the project go from drawings on a screen to physical objects in the world was great and gave me a sense of pride in my work.
My goal is to become a chartered engineer while continuing to develop my knowledge on all aspects of the industry.
I enjoy spending time with friends and family, going to the gym and playing sports.
Engineering is a very broad industry so take the time to research and discover your interests to allow you to pursue what best aligns with your goals.
