Mouchel Parkman is looking for 50 graduates to start this summer (see ad, page 51 Isn't that a bit greedy?

Perhaps, but Mouchel and Parkman merged last autumn and the 4000strong company has big plans.

And what will it do with them all?

Mouchel Parkman is a diverse beast. It is particularly strong in transportation, but can offer a wide range of experiences, from waste, utilities, ports and project management.

What does it offer?

As well as the usual 'good salary and benefits', this summers' graduate intake will be the first to go through a new training programme, which according to Brett Galloway, the company's graduate recruitment and development manager, is all about equipping graduates with core competencies. The company is also hoping to get the scheme accredited through an unusually wide range of professional institutions - which will increase your options when it comes to getting chartered or incorporated.

What type of person is Mouchel Parkman looking for?

Today's engineers, according to Galloway, need to be good communicators with commercial awareness and strong client skills - it's no longer just about technical ability.

Where will I be working?

With 68 offices around the UK the company can usually find a role and geographical area that suits the candidate.
