Apprentice project engineer

VolkerRail do everything they can to aid me with the progression of my apprenticeship and the support they have given me is phenomenal. The team I work with will always ensure that whatever I learn through my studies is brought through and shown in real life demonstrations, on site. 

The help I have received did not just come from my mentor and line manager, everyone in the business wants to help, which make my apprentice that much easier.

Assistant business accountant

Since joining VolkerRail, I have developed both personally and professionally through working in the finance team.I am responsible for numerous processes, which are integral to the business, gaining experience in both management accounting and financial reporting.

It is great to benefit from the experience and knowledge of my work colleagues, which has helped me grow into my role, developing my skill set to take on new challenges. I am currently working towards my Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) qualification and am grateful for the sponsorship and support I receive from VolkerRail.
