David Lee

After graduating I joined an environmental consultancy called ADAS, initially on a 2 year graduate scheme and now permanently. I really enjoy it here as I work on a wide range of interesting, challenging and important projects, and find it a very supportive environment with lots of training provided and opportunities to develop in my role.

I had great fun being a student in Leeds, but importantly my course gave me  exposure to the environmental industry and a good understanding of what was happening in the ‘real world’, not just the academic theories. I had an opportunity to do a work placement as one of my modules which provided hands on experience and contact with industry, and through knowledgeable lecturers I learnt a lot about how the water and environmental consultancy sector operates. This experience and knowledge was invaluable when it came to applications and interviews and I certainly would not have got my current job without it.
