“I find that the projects I am working on are constantly improving my abilities in this profession”
I joined Waterman’s Building Services team in Manchester after completing my Master’s degree in Poland at the end of 2013.
“Stop wondering and give it a try, it may surprise you!”
I graduated from Warsaw University of Technology, Poland, in 2015 and it was whilst studying for my Master’s degree in Environmental Engineering that I started working for Waterman in their Warsaw office.
“Every day has been a steep learning curve for me, in all aspects of the job”
My academic interests were always towards maths and design, I even made applications to study Engineering at University before deciding to pursue a full-time sporting career.
“It is very rewarding and satisfying when you know you’ve met your targets”
I have worked within the Building Services discipline for the past six years after completing my A-levels.
“I was permitted a greater input and understanding into the practical side of engineering in a whole new environment.”
Simon Mayor joined our Structures team during his secondment to Sydney.
“This industry is incredibly dynamic and constantly in a state of change”
I am fairly new to Waterman having joined in September, but have settled in well with the Infrastructure and Environment team in Birmingham where I am gaining the experience to become a more rounded Infrastructure engineer.
“I learnt so much from these experiences which can’t be taught in a lecture theatre”
I have always liked and had an interest in buildings, when I was about 16 I completed 1 week work experience where I saw some blueprint plans and I realised this fitted with my enjoyment of maths and decided to pursue a career in engineering.
“It is great having something new and challenging to work on”
Having studied Structural Engineering in Bucharest, I worked for a year in Romania before a friend of mine recommended Waterman to me.
“It is so rewarding when you get a good piece of work done”
From a young age, building structures out of toy bricks, I always liked buildings and architecture but leaned towards the problem-solving side of things.
“My work is interesting because it’s so varied”
I was always interested in the way things go together and using different technology; growing up I enjoyed watching as new buildings were built on local building sites and listening to my Uncle talk about his role as an Engineer
