Alice will join SRL’s graduate scheme having worked for SRL last year during her summer break . Alice will be joining the team based at the company Head Office in Little Waldingfield, Sudbury.
Before Alice went into her final year studying Physics at Bristol University, she completed an eight-week work placement at SRL. Alice knew she wanted to pursue a career in acoustics because she has a musical background and thought this would be the perfect way to combine it with physics.
Over the eight weeks Alice shadowed various consultants and got to experience many different aspects of the job. Alice was quickly entrusted with responsibilities such as writing reports for clients, calculating acoustic requirements for proposed buildings and using software to construct 3D acoustic models. Alice felt that being allowed to contribute in this way to SRL, even as an undergraduate, was extremely rewarding.
Alice says “I really enjoyed my summer at SRL and was thrilled when I was welcomed back as a full-time employee after my degree. I decided to begin my graduate career at SRL because despite being a small company, the work we do is so extensive and covers all sectors. My favourite part of the job is that no two weeks are the same; next week I could be anywhere in the country, meeting new clients and facing new challenges. SRL also has a great graduate training scheme, which is thorough, yet allows you to work on real projects and start gaining valuable experience soon after joining the company”.
“SRL has a welcoming and encouraging environment, where everyone seeks to improve themselves and continually develop as professionals. I am looking forward to advancing in my own career here as an acoustician”.
