An employer's view

Celtic Technologies

Celtic Technologies is a Cardiff-based Environmental Consultancy specialising in contaminated land, especially Risk Assessment and Remediation work. It employs c60 people and has had close links with Cardiff University’s School of Earth and Ocean Sciences over many years.

"Not only do they have the baseline abilities we are looking for – good communication skills, team players, willingness to continue learning on the job – but they can also relate their studies to the real world of work."

Barry Ellis, Technical Director

The company is "very impressed" by the many postgraduates employed from the MSc course in Applied Environmental Geology.

Most of the Cardiff postgraduates employed by the company have undertaken their practical project for their dissertation with Celtic Technologies. "It’s an excellent opportunity to see whether they like our work and whether we like them – it’s very much a two-way process".
