Would you recommend JN Bentley, and why?
Yes, I would recommend JN Bentley. They have provided me with support in the form of a mentor and Supervising Civil Engineer (SCE) to assist with my progression towards chartership with the ICE. They have also opened up opportunities across the company to ensure I acquire a wide range of experience to become a well-rounded professional. For the first five years of my career I had been based in the office as a Designer / Project Leader and had no site experience. I felt site experience would be a great benefit and improve my confidence going into the professional review. This was arranged by my SCE and I have thoroughly enjoyed working as a Site Engineer since November 2016.
How has gaining the qualification helped in your day-to-day work / career?
My confidence in my own ability has improved since finding out the result. The process of obtaining the qualification greatly helped as it provided me with a wide range of experience working on many different projects, for different clients and within different teams. This enabled me to develop the knowledge, skills and attributes necessary to become a chartered engineer. I hope that the qualification will also improve my career prospects going forward.
