During my degree I worked with MWH as summer vacation hire, as part of SURV499 vacation employment. This allowed me to confirm that I had made the right career choice as well as gain the practical days required to Graduate. I have now been working with MWH in the Wanganui office as a Graduate for three years. I have been working with professional, experienced staff who have been great mentors through my development and MWH have regularly sent me on internal and external training courses. While working for MWH I have had the opportunities to gain considerable experience in Cadastral Surveying (both large rural and urban), Control Surveying, Subdivision Design, Resource Consents, Roading Surveying, Roading Design and Contract Management. MWH and the Survey team were very accommodating in finding the specific work that was needed to gain the required experience for my Licensing, this even stretched to working on projects in different regions. MWH’s support in letting me work on such a variety of projects so early in my career has allowed me to gain my License within three years of Graduating. MWH has a great working environment with plenty of career development opportunities.
