“Moving to Charles Brand was a bit of career change for me as I had previously worked in a building environment and was now working in a marine/civil engineering and utilities environment. However, the transfer was made quite easy thanks to the welcoming and positive attitude that prevails here. There is a collaborative and dynamic culture within the team, which encourages open discussion of ideas, and gives everyone a chance to have their say.”
