Matthew McCullough, pictured here at Whitehouse WwTW, joined McAdam in the Summer of 2022, as a Graduate Civil Engineer from Queen’s University Belfast. Matthew became aware of McAdam after attending a Graduate Information Event and was taken by the scale of projects being undertaken by McAdam here in Northern Ireland. Matthew was keen to start using the knowledge and skills developed in his degree university, but also had an eye on career progression and chartership. Having offered Matthew a role within it’s WWTW Base Maintenance delivery team, McAdam discussed opportunities to avail of the government funded Higher-Level Apprentice scheme as a pathway for completing his Masters in Construction & Project Management whilst working 4 days a week. The ability to relate what he learns at university with his actual work is really helping embed knowledge.
As Matthew notes, “At a recent Scoping Workshop the risks and potential mitigation measures of a WWTW refurbishment project were discussed by the client and construction team. I helped capture these in the Project Risk Register and a few weeks later learnt how these risks could be dealt within the contract documentation prepared for the final scope. Having just learnt about Risk Management within my course this gave me the opportunity to see how these processes are implemented in practice.”
McAdam are currently welcoming applications from anyone who currently looking for a Graduate or Placement opportunity starting in June 2023. To apply please email firstname.lastname@example.org
