Royal HaskoningDHV have been confirmed as sponsors of the 2016 New Civil Engineer (NCE) Graduate Awards. Organised annually by the globally-focused brand and publication New Civil Engineer, the Awards are designed to help identify the best and brightest graduate talent in the UK civil engineering industry.

For the first time this year, we have come on board to support this fantastic event recognising future engineering talent. As sponsors of the Awards we have been granted access to a number of benefits by NCE, such as the opportunity to advertise our graduate vacancies on their website.

Entries for this year’s awards have now closed and a shortlist of six finalists has been decided by a judging panel which includes a senior representative from Royal HaskoningDHV, UK Resident Director Craig Huntbatch. The second stage of the competition takes place on 4th November. Candidates will be interviewed face-to-face by the panel and give a 15-minute presentation. The NCE Awards Lunch will then take place on 25th November in London, where the 2016 Graduate of the Year will be announced.

Royal HaskoningDHV’s representative Craig Huntbatch is delighted to be part of this year’s judging panel: “The talent coming out of the NCE Graduate Awards is outstanding and proves that the engineering industry has a bright future ahead. As a company, Royal HaskoningDHV understands the importance of engineering graduates in shaping the way for our industry, and we strongly value the contribution of our talented graduate employees.

“We are thrilled to be supporting the rising stars and future leaders of our industry as part of our corporate sponsorship. Hopefully, we will see some of our own graduates recognised in the NCE Graduate Awards in years to come.”

The NCE Graduate Awards are designed for engineering graduates within their first two years of post-graduate employment. The 2017 Awards will open for entries next summer, with the winning candidate being awarded a place on the Editorial Advisory Board of NCE, acting as ambassador to the engineering profession by judging the following year’s awards, and receiving a share of a large cash prize.
