Nathan Crabtree

Contracts Manager.

What were you doing before you came to work at JN Bentley?

From leaving school with A levels, I went to work for a year in Australia. Then came home wanting a trade / skill with an education to underpin it.

What made you apply to work for JN Bentley?

That it was a local Civil Engineering firm. It had a reputation as a no-nonsense firm, providing solutions without masses of red tape. I had heard of the can-do attitude and the pleasant nature of the employees.

How would you describe JN Bentley in 3 words?

Enthusiastic. Responsible. Benchmark

What do you enjoy about working at JN Bentley?

I enjoy the freedom that JN Bentley allow their employees to command of their own development and progression within the industry.

What do you think are the benefits of going straight into employment instead of going onto university, for example?

The practical undertaking provides a grounding for subjects that are being (or are to be) studied. Being involved in the industry provides a perspective on the theoretical knowledge gained though studying.

Being employed in the industry prior to going into education opens your understanding of the depth and variety of the industry meaning you may find you’re best suited to a certain discipline within civil engineering and then tailor your future studies to those strengths or areas of interest.
