Graduate Profile Stephen Lee

After Stephen Lee graduated from the University of Bath with an MEng in 2004, he worked for a charity in Africa for 18 months before joining Ramboll Whitbybird. "At my interview I really felt that I liked the people," recalls Stephen. "I could see it was an open and honest environment, I knew that I could get on here. It struck me as a very different company to others I had been to."

Since he joined, Stephen has learned a lot Đ and it's all been good. "It's hard work, but it is good to be given a lot of responsibility, to be really involved and to meet with people at all levels - you are not lost in a way that can happen in a larger company. I am working with like-minded people, and I really feel that I am able to influence things. They give you the chance to push yourself here, with early responsibility - but there is fun, too - there is a great social life in the London office."


Clare studied for her MEng in architectural engineering at Cardiff University, a five-year course that included a year in France. By the time of her final examinations, she had secured a job with the structural engineering team at Ramboll Whitbybird's Bristol office.

For her first job, Clare was assigned to the team looking after the engineering design of St David's 2 - a major development in Cardiff City Centre. "I started by looking at the structural design of the concrete frame for the residential part of the development," Clare says. "I'm now working on the car park for the same development, and also on a new primary school in Birmingham. Levels of responsibility have definitely increased since I started working here."

Clare is clearly enjoying herself. "The Bristol office is a good team, we all know each other, everyone is very supportive and there is a good social side as well," she says. "As a graduate, there is a lot going on. I'm working for ICE-chartered status, and they are very supportive. We all get a lot of training. Last year, all the graduates went on a trip to Paris, which was great."
