What Our Employees Say About Us

Andrew Kirby says:

Andrew Kirby

“I started work with Robert West after graduating in Civil Engineering at Plymouth University in 2000.

During the course of my career at Robert West I have spent a significant proportion of my time on secondment which has provided the opportunity for me to see things from the client’s perspective and to see how other companies work. I have also had exposure to the civils, structural and marine sectors which has provided variety over the years.

I like working at Robert West because of the people – there is a really good team spirit. We all work together and help one another out when needed.”.


Adam Southwick – Principal Engineer (MEng CEng) says:

Adam Southwick

I joined Robert West as a Graduate in October 2015 before progressing to become a Design Engineer within the Civil and Structural team. I’ve worked on a wide range of different jobs at Robert West, developing the skills I learnt at University. Although office based, I’ve had many opportunities to get out on site and get my hands dirty.

As Robert West is a smaller company, I’ve had the opportunity to gain valuable financial & management experience at an early stage in my career alongside excellent technical experience and feel I’m a valued member of the team. I find the job constantly challenging but received great support and mentorship as I progressed towards my Chartership.”  


Claudia Pista, Engineer says:

Claudia Pista

“I joined Robert West in January 2018 after almost two years of experience gained in Italy.

I’ve worked on several projects, mostly in the Marine team, developing skills in design, construction support and client interaction. This has allowed me to widen my experience and get to know the UK working environment too.

As Robert West is a small company, I have had the opportunity to get involved in different tasks and different structural and geotechnical challenges.

I find the nature of the work very appealing, enjoy being a member of the team and knowing I am supported by my colleagues".
