Madeleine joined Ramboll’s environmental planning division at the beginning of 2018. Working closely with technical specialists in different departments, she drafts proposals, screening letters, scoping reports and helps to co-ordinate Environmental Impact Assessments (EIAs) for various projects.
“I saw the job advert on LinkedIn,” says Madeleine. “It was well defined and I knew exactly what I was letting myself in for. I researched the company and was moved by the sentiment behind Ramboll and the story of two engineers wanting to rebuild a war-torn society and intrigued by the impressive project portfolio, the innovative approaches and the breadth of opportunities on offer.”
Michael Elliott (Senior Managing Consultant in the Impact Assessment team) says, “Madeleine stood out because she has a great degree from a good university and brings with her a tremendous amount of enthusiasm and energy. She’s got a very positive attitude and is keen to learn. She’s full of interesting ideas and has a fresh approach. She’s proving to be a great asset to the Impact Assessment team and the wider company.”
As part of the BSc in Environmental Science course at the University of York, Madeleine travelled to Peru, studying mammalian populations in the neotropical rainforest. After graduating with a first-class Honours in 2016, Madeleine spent some time travelling and then worked as a research analyst before applying for a job with Ramboll.
Looking to the future, Madeleine says, “I’d like to gain a deeper understanding of technical impact assessments and become more hands-on.”
