An employer's view

Celtic Technologies is a Cardiff-based Environmental Consultancy specialising in contaminated land, especially Risk Assessment and Remediation work.

It employs around 60 people and has had close links with our School of Earth and Ocean Sciences over many years.

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

Most of our postgraduates employed by the company have undertaken their practical project for their dissertation with Celtic Technologies.

"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. 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."

Barry Ellis, Technical Director
