Our Graduate engineer Matt Koren who has been at HWA for one year, is working towards becoming chartered with the Institution of Civil Engineers. Our Senior Partner Giles Ward, has signed up to be his mentor.
The ICE Mentoring scheme is a vital tool to aid the professional development of young engineers helping them to achieve their goals. One of the requirements for becoming an ICE mentor is 10-15 years of work experience since qualifying. Being a mentor is not only fulfilling by helping others progress, but also allows development of your own skills, like coaching, supporting and providing helpful feedback. Mentoring is hugely rewarding and can also help enlarge a network of industry contacts and we’re sure both Matt and Giles will get a lot out of the experience.
The ICE state on their website that they particularly need these types of mentors right now:
- Experts in project and programme management, leadership and bid management
- Female engineers across all sectors
- Rail engineers
- Bridge engineers
- Structures and buildings engineers
