Monica named most promising
trainee civil engineer
Jackson Graduate Engineer Monica Chandran has been named Most Promising Trainee Civil Engineer 2022 at the prestigious CECA Southern Awards.
It is deserved recognition for Monica, who joined Jackson’s Highways Division two years ago and has become a valued member of the team.
Monica has contributed to the successful delivery of a number of projects and set the bar high in terms of the level of technical ability shown by a graduate placement engineer.
Outside work hours Monica has been involved in charity work and has used her own time to positively impact her community and beyond. Her passion to get involved comes from a genuine desire to better her community and to help people to get on.
Monica’s voluntary work has seen her attend many careers days to promote civil engineering to students. Last autumn she gave up her time to host the Women in Engineering stand at the British Science Festival.
