M-EC, the development technical consultants, has recruited five new members of staff.
The company is experiencing strong demand for its services as the construction industry and the economy continues to pick up following the pandemic. The new appointments, which will all be based at the firm’s Leicestershire head office, will enable M-EC to further meet client demand.
Joining the firm are:
Zoe Jordan: assistant flood risk engineer
Simran Matharu: assistant transport planner
Isobel Jones-Walters: land surveyor
Natasha Kearl: geo environmental engineer
Adam Walker: acoustic consultant
As part of M-EC’s commitment to developing a diverse workplace and training and developing its own staff, two of the new appointments, Zoe Jordan and Simran Matharu are recent graduates and four are women, which is unusual in a traditionally male dominated sector.
Zoe and Simran are taking their first steps in the engineering industry after leaving university. Isobel Jones-Walters, Natasha Kearl and Adam Walker join M-EC with a wealth of engineering experience so can hit the ground running and immediately get started on client projects.
Alex Bennett, director of M-EC, says: “We are extremely pleased to be expanding our team with these five new appointments. Each individual is bringing a specific set of expertise to the company and I am looking forward to seeing them grow within M-EC and positively impact our client base.
“It’s great to see increased interest in careers in engineering and development consultancy from women. It’s certainly a growing trend across the country and I know more women joining the industry will bring huge benefits, both to individual firms and the sector as a whole. M-EC is proud to support a diverse workforce as an equal opportunities employer.”
