One company that offers its employees life-long career advancement is M-EC Consulting Development Engineers. M-EC Consulting Development Engineers is a leading multi-disciplinary engineering and environmental consultancy that provides a range of services for both private and public sector pre-planning building and construction projects. Understanding the value of the diverse skills that military personnel bring to their business, M-EC Consulting Development Engineers is willing to help reservists and veterans into engineering consultancy roles by helping them to enhance their capabilities with on-the-job training, mentoring and work shadowing.
Not only does the company aid with their career development once they are through the door but it also considers – and hires wherever possible – military applicants who come to them without degrees or industry specific qualifications. In this instance, experience in civil engineering, surveying, geology and ground investigation or environmental engineering is preferred, though for the right person suitable transferable skills might suffice.
Such was the case for Royal Engineers soldier Carlo. After leaving the Army, Carlo found a job site testing and drilling geotechnical boreholes. With this experience under his belt, Carlo was then able to secure a job at M-EC Consulting Development Engineers working in the Ground Investigation Team as a driller. Helping Carlo to progress within the company, M-EC Consulting Development Engineers then provided him with the opportunity to take an NVQ in Land Drilling. Thanks to this support Carlo now works as Head of Site Technical Services for the company.
“At M-EC we are invested in supporting those who serve our country. We welcome job applications from those who are leaving the military or are reservists, as we feel you have many transferable skills that complement the work that we do,” says Eddie Mewies, Managing Director of M-EC Consulting Development Engineers.
