Graduate profile: Ella Roebuck
Ella studied civil engineering at Loughborough University. She graduated in 2005 with an MEng and also a Diploma in industrial studies, and then moved to the West Country to join Mowlem.

When Mowlem was taken over by Carillion in 2006, Ella was working on Lyme Regis Environmental Improvements Scheme Phase 2. By 2007 she had moved to another tough but challenging project in Boscastle, Cornwall. The village had been famously devastated by flash flooding. Ella found herself working on two projects running in tandem – the Environment Agency’s flood alleviation scheme, and a pumping station which is part of the proposed sewage treatment works for South West Water.

"Carillion has been very good to me – the company is making sure that I get all the experience that I need in order to meet my ICE objectives as I work to becoming chartered", explained Ella. "I am now working in Exeter, on a secondment to an engineering consultant in order to get the design experience that I need as part of my professional training."

"As a graduate engineer I think that I have been very lucky”, continued Ella. "I have worked on interesting projects – but just as important, I have been given the right kind of support, and sent on a huge amount of training courses. I feel that I am being looked after as an individual, and listened to. There are many advantages in working for a big company like Carillion – meeting the other graduates when we all get together at training courses is good or the annual graduate conference where graduates from all levels share experiences and present our work, and there is the opportunity to discuss things. There is a lot of support here for individuals who want to get involved. At the moment I am pulling together a graduate team for the ICE South West teamwork challenge – we won this last year, so our reputation is at stake!"
