Our real life employee stories
Don’t just take our word for it. Here’s what some of our employees and recent Interns say about their life at GeO:
Georgia Peeler, Monitoring Engineer
I joined Geotechnical Observations in July 2018, as a ‘Monitoring Engineer’. In my role, I have taken part in projects such as HS2 and the Northern Line Extension, installing and reading various instruments. These instruments have included inclinometers, extensometers and two types of piezometers; all devices used to monitor ground conditions in innovative and creative techniques. I have also been involved in processing data on some smaller projects. The best thing about working for Geo-Obs has been meeting and working alongside individuals who have knowledgeable and interesting career backgrounds in a diversity of areas. This has been a great stepping stone to the next challenge in my career.
Joe Birnie, Intern
During my time with GeO I gained good solid work experience, which wasn't only sitting behind a desk - actually getting onto site in person and seeing all the engineering aspects which surround a project (props, piling rigs etc.). It helped me with my MSc as I had something to talk about which they could relate to. Great project experience on Northern Line Extension. Seeing something in first person and being able to ask questions like 'what is a capping beam' is always better than reading about it or being shown a picture/presentation.
Theo Clayton, Intern
Working on the Northern Line Extension with Geotechnical Observations provided me with invaluable industry experience. I was able to put some of the skills I had learnt during my first year at university into practice; as well as gaining new ones and providing me with an insight of how work is carried out on site. My internship at Geotechnical Observations also helped me to be accepted onto the University of Surrey's ICE scholarship scheme.
