Name: Akhil Mathew

Date started: 23.06.14 

Job Role: Graduate Engineer

So Akhil, tell us about your Education history.

"I completed my undergraduate Degree (Civil Engineering) in India and Postgraduate Degree (Structural Engineering) from The University of Manchester in 2014."

What do Porthouse Dean offer that other companies don’t?

"PorthouseDean has helped me improve both professionally and personally since I joined as a Graduate Engineer back in 2014. I'm constantly working on challenging and interesting projects. I've gained exposure in setting up the company's Quality Assurance procedure which helped us getting our ISO Certification. PorthouseDean is the first company I've worked at since graduating. I’m very impressed with the quality systems in place the team have put in place which ensures everything is well organised and traceable. We don’t promise anything which we can’t deliver but we deliver what we promise. I believe we are the best in terms of quality and efficiency, delivering projects to the highest standard. Our customer feedback is a testament to this. I think this is what sets us apart from other consultancies."

Tell us a little bit more about yourself...

"I enjoy working with PorthouseDean, it's a very humorous and friendly environment to work. As a company which keeps growing, we're often working to very tight deadlines but this never phases the Senior Engineers who are always on hand to give me guidance and advice. As a Graduate Engineer the exposure to a wide variety of projects and mentorship from my senior engineer is helping me grow as an Engineer and to work towards my Chartership."
