Jonathan Watson, Graduate Site Engineer

Our Graduate Site Engineer, Jonathan Watson always strived to have a career in construction having always been fascinated by buildings, old and new.

Jonathan lives in Airdrie, near Glasgow, and started studying for his Environmental Civil Engineering degree in 2015 at Glasgow Caledonian University. Half way through his studies, Jonathan was offered a 3 month summer placement with Interserve through his University; he spent the summer of 2017 working on Edinburgh’s iconic McEwan Hall building and also helping with a hotel development in Edinburgh City Centre.

The following year, Jonathan returned to Interserve on another summer placement and spent the summer working on the Edinburgh Printmakers refurbishment where he learnt a great deal about the industry, was given extensive training and became a real part of the team.

When Jonathan, who is now 22, graduated this summer, he was offered a place on Interserve’s three year graduate scheme. Over the past few months Jonathan has enjoyed working on site, has received a wide range of training including risk management, environmental, first aid and attends a weekly NEBOSH course. He is currently working alongside the pre-construction team and contributes to bid preparation and programming.

Speaking about his time with Interserve so far, Jonathan said;

“I feel really lucky to have come out of university and went straight into a job, especially with a great company like Interserve.

“It was great that I had already completed the two summer placements as it meant I was coming back to a lot of friendly faces and everyone has been really welcoming.

“I’ve received so much training since I started working here and am enjoying learning about the different parts of the business. Over the next few years I would like to achieve chartership and I know Interserve’s links with the Institute of Civil Engineers can help me do that.”
