Ian Simms BEng PhD CEng MICE – Principal Design Engineer

“I joined LSTC as a chartered civil engineer but with no prior experience of overhead lines.
Working at LSTC has given be an opportunity to experience a wide variety of overhead line projects, working alongside and learning from industry experts.
I’ve been given a diverse portfolio of projects from small jobs at 33kV to large National Grid schemes at 400kV.
Although LSTC are spread across several offices there is a good teamworking ethos and gaining cooperation and input from colleagues has never been an issue.
The company understands the importance of investing in people, professional development is encouraged, and a good range of role focused CPD training is provided.”

Martin Atkin – OHL Design Engineer

“From a personal perspective, LSTC has committed time, money and resources to my professional development.
Since having joined, over ten years ago, I have been afforded the opportunity to move up a clearly defined chain from starting as a junior CAD draughtsman through to my current position as an overhead line design engineer.
I have been encouraged to study alongside my work, eventually graduating from a course in Engineering Technology run by Hull College and certified by the Open University in June 2015.
It is rewarding to have the company put their faith in you to provide a return on their investment.”

Ben Kocal MIET – Senior Design Engineer

“Working at LSTC has been a great experience.
I’ve had the opportunity to collaborate with a diverse workforce on national and international projects.
The company is brimming with experienced professionals who are very knowledgeable and willing to teach – making LSTC a great place to learn.
There is also a refreshing amount of teamwork between the multiple offices located all around the UK, avoiding the often-seen silo effect (and it’s certainly helped by the healthy competition in the company-wide fantasy premier league mini-league!)”
