Graduate profile: William Lunn
William Lunn studied for his BENg in Architectural Engineering at Leeds University. By the time he graduated in 2005, he knew that he wanted to take his career as an engineer into the design office. "I saw an advert for TPS and shot down to their open day," he recalled. "From that meeting, I was offered an interview, and I joined the company in the London design office soon after."

From those early days, William has not looked back. He has participated in the structural design of some projects that most graduate engineers would love to get their hands on – including a hospital, and a major development at Kings Cross. "My role is on the structural side, designing in steel, timber and concrete using a range of software packages. My focus is still within the design office at this stage, but I am working up to being involved in client and site meetings in the no too distant future."

William has signed up for the ICE form of professional accreditation through the TPS agreement. "The company has been great, they are doing all they can to help me get the experience that I need," said William. "Because of the relationship with Carillion, they can get me onto site as well – in fact, working here allows a graduate to meet all the training objectives. I have been here 18 months now, and have always had great support from my colleagues. My supervising engineer sits right next to me. We have regular meetings to discuss my progress and look at what else I need to do".
