This month, Andun Engineering Consultants (Andun) hosted a virtual event for civil engineering students interested in a Temporary Works Design career.
The event allowed students to gain a deeper understanding of the field, connect with experienced professionals, and learn about the real-world application of Temporary Works Design.
Presentations from the senior team
The first part of the careers fair saw the team look at the role of temporary works in the construction industry, whilst taking a moment to share their professional career experience at Andun.
Most speakers had started their careers at the company whilst still at university, going on to become qualified engineers through the company training programmes.
They provided an in-depth look at the various aspects of Temporary Works Design, including design, construction, and project management. Including their insights on the challenges and opportunities in the industry.
Presentations from the junior team
In addition to the presentations from experienced professionals, students also had the chance to hear from junior team members at Andun.
Members of the team just beginning their careers and combining their work at Andun with civil engineering training through university or apprentice schemes.
These presentations provided a more personal perspective on what it’s like to work as a Temporary Works Designer on a day-to-day basis at Andun.
Including a look at the Andun design process and the opportunities, the engineers have had to build their engineering skills during their time at the company.
This gave students a more realistic view of the job and what they can expect if they pursue a career in this field.
