OUR YII STUDENTS IN THEIR OWN WORDS…
2017/2018: Rebecca; Engineering undergraduate, Nottingham University
I love working with RJM and I think having my YII in a small company has allowed me to experience a lot more, develop my skills more quickly and made me feel fully integrated within the RJM team, right from the outset. The biggest challenge was learning what all the different acronyms mean, but everyone has been really willing to explain things – you’ve just got to be brave and ask lots of questions!
So far during my YII, I have drafted complex technical proposals in the office and been sent out on site with the RJM team to carry out boiler diagnostic tests. I then applied these findings to a series of engineering calculations that were used to modify the design of some RJM ultra-low NOx burner components. I have also been the RJM ‘scribe’ for a HAZOP study and have had a go at using RJM’s CFD modelling software and designing new components using SOLIDWORKS software.
The best opportunities for me have been working abroad and experiencing other cultures while doing a job I really enjoy at the same time. My YII has taken me to Wales, Ireland and even as far as Viet Nam.
In summary, I would really recommend the RJM YII scheme for any ambitious engineer who wants an exciting and challenging year with plenty of opportunities to develop their skills.
2012/2013: James; Mechanical Engineering, Liverpool University
I did my YII in 2012/13 and subsequently RJM offered me sponsorship through my final year and a full-time job upon graduation. I’ve been with RJM for four years now and worked across Europe, Asia, South America and the United States on a wide range of projects, building up my technical knowledge, business and management skills. In 2018, I will be relocating to the US office, taking up a new role as RJM’s Head of Business Development and Operations in the USA.
2011/2012: Matt; Engineering, Portsmouth University
I did my YII in 2011/12 and joined RJM as a new graduate. I’ve now worked in a number of different countries including Bulgaria, Germany, Czech Republic, Turkey, Viet Nam, China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand and the Philippines. Recently, my focus has been building up RJM’s customer portfolio in Asia where we have completed a number of successful emissions reduction projects in Beijing, a large optimisation project in Viet Nam, and I am now focussing on a new project in Hong Kong. In 2017 I facilitated the incorporation of a new RJM subsidiary company in Singapore, and in 2018 I will be moving out to Singapore to head up Business Development and Operations for RJM’s Asia-Pacific business.
ONE OF OUR MAIN UNIVERSITY ENGINEERING DEPARTMENT CONTACTS…
Crawford Blagden, Industrial Experience Manager, School of Engineering and Materials Science, Queen Mary University of London
The School of Engineering and Materials Science of Queen Mary University of London has for several years now enjoyed an extremely successful collaboration with RJM. A number of QMUL undergraduate students have participated in successful YII placements with RJM and have gained great benefit from the diverse opportunities for professional growth offered by the company, both in regards to putting into practice the theoretical knowledge they have gained through their academic studies - but as importantly with the development of their soft skills. We look forward to future successful collaboration with RJM in the years to come.
