Meet Eson, Engineering Intern and Webuild scholar! 

Eson’s academic track record is impressive, earning himself a place on the Dean’s List for Engineering four years in a row, a George J Haggarty Civil Engineering Prize, and the Australia Tomorrow’s Builders Scholarship for 2023. We’re incredibly excited to share in Eson’s early career and have his calibre of talent working with our team in Sydney!
“My journey with Webuild began last year [2023] during my time at the University of Technology Sydney. I noticed that the university was offering several scholarships. One of the prominent scholarships that caught my eye was the Australia Tomorrow's Builders Scholarship, which seemed fitting for me as I wanted to pursue a career in construction. 

“Given Webuild Group's global recognition and its recent acquisition of Clough, I decided to apply for it. After successfully becoming a recipient, I began working as an Engineering Intern with the Group at the start of this year.

“Being a new starter, I am mainly responsible for supporting the Engineering department of the bidding and tendering team. The recent tasks that I’m involved in include creating an engineering register and looking at capability documents. I’m really excited about being in this team, and I look forward to being involved in the project delivery side of projects in the future.

“Before joining Webuild, I knew I wanted to get my foot in the door with a big construction or engineering company. Webuild was definitely on my radar as I discovered all the big-name projects they are undertaking, including SSTOM, Snowy 2.0, and the North East Link. I also saw Clough was part of the Group and I just knew it would be a really exciting opportunity to be involved with them.

“I really like the workplace culture. I feel very supported by my team and feel like I can easily reach out to people when I have burning questions – even when I have too many. It’s a great environment as others are willing to share their expertise with you, something that is invaluable to youngin’ like me.

“As construction will always be in demand, I'm excited about all the future projects I will get to be involved in. I've always been drawn to mobility projects like rail works and bridges, while energy and renewable projects are also beginning to attract my attention.

“A big reason for wanting to work in the engineering and construction industry is the opportunity to be involved in large-scale projects that have an impact on society. Knowing my involvement in these projects has a direct positive impact on the community, this is something that I find rewarding and meaningful to me.”
