Support to Chartered status is key, if not already held, and an extremely strong colleague base of senior engineers to mentor and assist more junior staff are always on hand, with an excellent team based success ethic.
There will be opportunities to become involved with marketing and business development activity if desired, gaining further client exposure and stakeholder management skills, in addition to industry conference attendance and participation.
