The Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) has accredited Jones Bros’ training scheme.
The aim is to help civil engineers employed by Jones Bros to achieve professional status through ICE, whilst attracting high calibre civil engineering graduates to join the company.
Neil Beresford of Jones Bros Civil Engineering, who is heading the project internally, said: “We are delighted to achieve ICE accreditation as it ensures our training meets the highest industry standards.
“Our aim is to increase the number of chartered civil engineers we have in our company by developing existing staff, whilst attracting the best and brightest graduates to join us.”
“Our training scheme is accredited for chartered engineers, incorporated engineers and engineering technicians and we will seek to train and support our staff in their progression through to ICE membership.”
Neil is one of three Jones Bros senior civil engineers who will serve as ICE supervisors, assisting staff to gain ICE accreditation by ensuring they display the nine required attributes including commercial experience, technical knowledge and health and safety awareness.
Any gaps in their knowledge will be identified and the appropriate training provided.
“We are fortunate that Jones Bros has a terrific reputation and works on some very prestigious contracts across the UK, so there will be plenty of opportunities for our civil engineers undergoing the training to gain lots of relevant, valuable experience,” added Neil.
