University Degree: MEng Civil Engineering with Architecture/University of Southampton
Hi I’m Emily – often called Em – and I live in Cardiff. I completed my degree in Civil Engineering with Architecture in 2014, graduating from the University of Southampton. Rather than stepping onto the career ladder straight away as most of my peers did – I decided it was my time to see the world and just a few months after graduating I boarded a plane to start my adventure. Travelling to SE Asia, New Zealand, Fiji, Australia and Dubai for nearly a year was such an amazing experience. But working on vineyards in New Zealand wasn’t all it was cut out to be – it was time for me to pursue a real job. With a construction-based degree and having previously worked during the summer holidays for a house builder - I wanted to learn more and gain a greater understanding of all aspects of the housing industry. Offering the opportunity to spend time in key departments, the Redrow Rotational Graduate Scheme seemed like the perfect fit – I was lucky enough to be offered a position in the Bristol office, covering the South West – and I couldn’t wait to get started on my next adventure!
