What do you like about working there?
Since I joined Sheppard Robson has grown considerably but hasn't lost its distinctive 'family' culture. This means that I have significantly developed my skills - seeing projects develop from the initial concept at the design lab through to practical completion on site - in a strong, motivated and sociable environment. Working within a large practice means that there is always someone with specific skills which you can use, share and learn from.
