Assistant Site Engineer
"As a school leaver I managed to gain two weeks work experience with VolkerFitzpatrick at Ramsgate rail depot. This soon turned into nine months as I loved the site environment, especially the people, and playing a small part in making something big. From here, VolkerFitzpatrick sponsored my degree at Bristol University in Civil Engineering. It was an easy choice to stay with the company after graduation. I am currently focussing on becoming chartered, as well as gaining more experience as a site engineer."
Manager Special Projects
"Having spent many years working for the company, it is the inclusive culture which prevails at VolkerFitzpatrick. Employees become friends who are there to support when difficulties are faced, whether that be at work or in our private life. There becomes a purpose for working; not only to deliver a first class product but also to enjoy the camaraderie whilst carrying out the role."
"I decided to join VolkerFitzpatrick because of the wide range of expertise and interesting projects. They value their staff and have a great graduate training scheme. I can say that every day is different and time certainly doesn't drag! I started as a summer placement student while at university. Since I joined full time, I have been working at East Kent Access. I am currenly working towards becoming a chartered engineer and once more experienced, I would like to progress to manage a team of people and challenging projects."
