This also resulted in us reaching the 1500 employee milestone for the very first time in 2018 and to continue to build upon our recent successes, we have invested over £1 million and 17,600 training hours into our most valuable asset – our employees.

A growing proportion of JN Bentley’s work, particularly in the water sector, is delivered through Mott MacDonald Bentley (MMB) a fully-integrated design-and-construct venture, MMB was established in 1999.

Finding innovative solutions to complex construction issues, applying the latest information technology to help drive efficiencies and reducing waste in our processes without compromising on quality is what we pride ourselves on.

Thoroughly enjoyed the practical aspect of the placement. Was mainly site based. At first was daunting but everyone was very helpful and patient which allowed me to learn. Eventually felt one of the team as opposed to just being there on placement...

    I fully enjoyed my placement at JN Bentley. Am not exaggerating when I say the company has a family feel to it. I don't even know how they do it. I enjoyed every morning coming to work. JN Bentley is vastly embedded into many civil engineering frameworks as well as other disciplines, electrical, mechanical and commercial, this allows you learn so many skills. Everybody spares their time to educate you. Being at JN Bentley has immersed me into a whole new form of learning that I have never had before. JN Bentley is so blessed with a plethora of academic resources, that will allow you complete your studies efficiently i.e. your dissertation.The company also has amazing benefits and allows a lot of time and resource to co-curricular activities, trust me, you won't find this anywhere else....

As a placement student you are paired with a member of the team for your whole year so I always had someone to ask if I was unsure. Everyone in the team is helpful and friendly, I never once felt I was left on my own to sink or swim.
