Why did you become an engineer?

Engineers at Ricardo have the opportunity to learn and develop through working with and tapping into the shared knowledge and experience of many talented and gifted colleagues.

"I have worked in many organizations in a number of sectors and never in my experience have I worked with individuals so willing to help others and share their experience. People only have to ask. It is truly impressive."  

Oonagh McPhillips, Head of Organisational Development
