2019/2020: Tom; Engineering Undergraduate, University of Sheffield:I had my interview for RJM in April 2019 and was delighted to be offered a placement. I started work in July 2019 and was immediately involved in a number of different projects. I have also worked on new business development, helping the company develop its expansion into the biomass and Energy from Waste markets, which has been really interesting. In addition, the placement has also allowed me to be involved in other aspects of the business, including process design and site work as well as sales and marketing. I have also been on a number of customer site visits, including a site survey of one of the UK’s only two Hazardous Waste Disposal facilities. I have also had the chance to work on some of the company’s bigger projects including its largest contract, to clean up the emissions at one of Europe’s most polluting power stations. This has allowed me to work with various senior engineers within the company, specialists in their respected fields, allowing me to expand on the knowledge I gained at university. I have loved my time at the company so far and would highly recommend doing a placement year at RJM.

2018/2019: James; Engineering Undergraduate, University of Sheffield:I was sold on RJM as soon as I came for the placement interview in the Spring of 2018. It is a medium-sized business and employs welcoming, friendly people – and this was obvious from the first visit. Being at a small company gives the best opportunity to experience all aspects of working for a professional engineering company, from process design, CFD, Research & Development, project management and sales. Also, as it operates globally, I have had the chance to visit power station customers in Ireland, India, Turkey and Poland during my Year In Industry. I would recommend a placement year with RJM wholeheartedly; you will get everything you put in and more.
