Esraa Hassanain

Apprentice Civil Engineer/Tender Coordinator

Esraa came to us for two weeks’ work experience in January 2019. At the time, she was a student at Dover College studying Electrical Engineering and working part time in McDonald’s. A career in Civil Engineering was not even on her radar – but she loved it.

Esraa is now employed full-time by INVUU, as an apprentice, she attends University one day a week studying for an HNC in Civil Engineering. Much of her role involves working on designs using CAD software.

‘Learning and working at the same time really works for me, as I can apply the theory learned at Uni to ‘real life’ projects. INVVU is behind me 100%, providing me with additional industry training… The whole team are helpful, supportive and are always happy to share their knowledge, skills and work processes.’

It’s great to see another woman entering the civil engineering world; especially one with Esraa’s commitment and talent.
