"As part of my degree in Environment Management, I was offered a one-year placement with RPS, a leading multidisciplinary engineering and environmental consultancy. During this time I worked on important projects and gained practical skills in report writing, Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), field surveys and Geographical Information Systems (GIS). Following completion of my undergraduate degree I was offered a full-time position as a Graduate Scientist with RPS Group".
