Graduate Profiles | McNicholas

www.mcnicholas.co.uk [cached]

Why did you choose McNicholas?
Why did you choose McNicholas? Having previously completed a yearlong placement with McNicholas, I was offered the chance to join the graduate scheme. Why did you choose McNicholas? After graduating with BEng in Civil Engineering I looked at a number of graduate schemes and decided on McNicholas due to the scheme they offer providing the opportunity to work across a variety of disciplines within construction and infrastructure industry. Why did you choose McNicholas? After graduating, I wanted to be able to continually develop my knowledge as well as practical capability through working on real project activities. I have found that with McNicholas being a Multi-Utility organisation I have been able to find projects that are diverse and I have developed my competence whilst carrying out day to day work. This was further emphasised when the Graduate Program was explained to me during initial stages, where within 24 months I would have experienced working in all the major areas of the business allowing me to gain a full understanding of McNicholas, how it drives the business and finally allowing me to choose a sector where I will be comfortable working as a permanent team member. This development programme was ultimately a key factor that led me to choosing McNicholas and having now come to the end of my first placement, my expectations have been exceeded. Additionally having Barry McNicholas our Chief Executive heading the group and the Business Strategy Director and other key McNicholas personnel attending meetings when we invite them has motivated us all to branch out and explore new ideas of innovation - an example of this has been contacting our Universities and becoming a part of their Research and Development programs to understand what technologies are being used in the market and how they can play a part at McNicholas. Why did you choose McNicholas? After completing my studies in Civil Engineering at City University, I researched a number of companies and decided on McNicholas due to its well-known name and wealth of experience within the construction industry. What do you think of the graduate training scheme? McNicholas offers a graduate scheme that is rare to find, providing graduates with the opportunity to experience a variety of departments and master new skills. It also emphasises the importance of female engineers, encouraging them to enter a male dominated industry. McNicholas provide training and support for graduates wishing to pursue Chartership, which is another reason why I chose the role. Why did you choose McNicholas? First and foremost, as a growing company, a company with a history of its kind, a company with multiple business units working all over the UK and Scotland in exciting and challenging projects have been some of the major attractions in choosing McNicholas. Likewise, during the recruitment process, the McNicholas Assessment Day had a huge influence in choosing the company as I was able to find more about the company, the works they do, their major clients, and its friendly and welcoming approach. During the interview, it gave me further more opportunity to directly talk with my potential line manager to find more about specific areas of works and interests which I instantly figured where I could fit and be a valued asset to the company. What do you think of the graduate training scheme? What stands out about McNicholas's Graduate training scheme compared to others is the rotational placements among the businesses which I think is very beneficial towards your personal and career development. Why did you choose McNicholas? After graduating with a degree in Geography I knew that I wanted to focus my career within the environmental sector. Having gained experienced working within different areas of the construction sector throughout my studies I established my focus. I found the idea of working within the environmental sector of construction exciting as so much development has and is yet to take place. I chose McNicholas due to its reputation within the market. With sustainability sneaking up on the agenda of many clients, the dominance of sustainable thinking is becoming more apparent within the construction industry. Therefore I felt that McNicholas would be the perfect place to develop my environmental skillset. Why did you choose McNicholas? After graduating from the University of Brighton in Electrical and Electronic Engineering I wanted to pursue a career that would practically use my knowledge and the skills I learnt in my degree. I chose the construction path due to the hands on aspect of it but I did not know exactly what part of construction I wanted to be in. McNicholas works in a wide range of the construction industry including; communications, rail and utilities. So McNicholas sounded like the perfect place for me to begin my experience in the construction world. The other graduates and I have also been tasked with creating an innovation group, allowing us to help McNicholas using a fresh pair of eyes, it is a brilliant chance to put new ideas to the company and also learn from mistakes of the industry. I would highly recommend the graduate scheme to anyone coming out of university! Why did you choose McNicholas? McNicholas offered an appealing graduate scheme with the opportunity to work in various exciting fields in the construction industry. One of the important aspects of becoming a professional is working towards chartership which McNicholas has been supportive of, which is promising. Why did you choose McNicholas? After my Graduation from Northumbria University in Quantity Surveying and Project Management it was time to find the right job that suited my qualifications and expectations. I came across various graduate schemes which I applied for. The key element that helped me to decide that McNicholas was the ideal company for me and my future career was the friendly and family environment that exists within the company. McNicholas is proven to be one of the best companies to gain a wide range of experience in different fields within the construction industry ensuring the best future for you. The mentoring and support from the colleagues is amazing, I believe in return I have managed to bring value to McNicholas and the departments I worked so far.
