Charlotte Stephenson, Project Environmental Scientist

View Profile

Charlotte is a Project Environmental Scientist in our London Office who, since joining, has been producing land quality assessments for new developments in a wide range of sectors including residential, commercial, industrial, schools and hospitals. This includes designing, procuring and supervising ground investigations and producing Tier 1 and Tier 2 contamination assessments, detailed ground gas and groundwater risk assessments, remediation specifications and verification reports.

What do you like about working at CampbellReith?

When I finished University, I struggled to not only secure a Graduate position but to even be offered any work experience. CampbellReith responded positively to my request for experience and offered me an initial three-month placement which was very enjoyable and led to my current role.

Throughout my time at CampbellReith, I have always been offered support to continue my learning, opportunity to be involved in the business and assisted with general career progression. Since I joined, I have seen a number of student placements, whether it be for few days or weeks, across the business and I think it is fantastic that CampbellReith invest time and resource encouraging young people to progress within the fields of science and engineering.

An added benefit, which I had not initially anticipated, is that I have been encouraged to become involved in other aspects of the business, including being an IMS Auditor, part of the Internal Engagement Committee and involvement in Health and Safety / CHAS Accreditation. This is allowing me to develop broader commercial and professional skills alongside my technical training.

Grant joined the Practice in 2013 after achieving a Masters of Science degree in Contaminant Hydrogeology from The University of Sheffield. He is an Associate in the land quality and contamination team.

After winning the Ground Engineering “Young Geoenvironmental Engineer of the Year Award” in 2015, he is now a candidate for the Ground Engineering Rising Star of the year Award.

Did you expect to be shortlisted after recently winning the GE Young Geo-environmental Engineer of the Year Award?

I was automatically shortlisted due to my recent award (GE Next Generation Young Geo-environmental Engineer of the Year 2015), along with the other candidates who won in the various categories.

How did you end up in engineering?

An interest in science and engineering I believe started at Primary School after a Victorian themed visit to one of Sheffield’s (former) steel works! Subsequently growing up I choose to study science and engineering subjects at school, College and ultimately University. Science and engineering is fundamental and underpins our society and how we are able to function and go about our day to day lives. It is something I think we all take for granted and society does not reward engineers proportionally as say bankers and footballers do, for example. Balancing this disproportion is something my generation should be working to rectify.

What attracted you to CampbellReith?

For my placement, my goals were to feel like a valued member of the team and to be involved in a variety of projects. During my time at CampbellReith, I have felt like a key member in the project teams and was able to get involved in tasks that suited my interests and skills.

What have you enjoyed the most about your time in the Bristol office?

I have particularly enjoyed being involved in the Oxford Science Park project whilst in the structures team. I have learnt a vast amount of knowledge ranging from sizing beam members in MasterSeries to retaining wall calculations.
