Congratulations to Cliff Francis, Project Manager for nmcn’s Water business unit, who has recently been announced as an Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) Future Leader.
Every year the ICE President chooses some of the brightest and most motivated graduate and technician members to be on the Future Leaders Scheme.
The popular and highly competitive scheme has been running since 2005. It gives graduate and technician members a unique opportunity to gain experience, develop skills and learn about the industry.
This year, Cliff who joined nmcn in September 2019 and has over five years experience in construction, has been selected as one of only six professionals to undertake the popular and highly competitive mentorship programme.
As a Future Leader, Cliff will meet and engage with senior engineering professionals, gaining invaluable insight into industry development. As well as becoming part of the Presidents’ Future Leader alumni network.
Cliff said: “I’m really excited by the opportunity to be a part of a great team, under such an inspiring mentorship. This scheme will provide a truly unique learning experience, and will allow me to develop skills and broaden my understanding of the industry.
“As an ICE Future Leader for 2020- 2021, I am keen to play my part in ensuring we have a sustainable future. The world is in great need of leaders who are passionate about climate change, and who are able to find opportunities to have a positive impact despite the current societal and economical challenges.
“My first assignment is to sit on the ICE Advisory Board for advancing data and digitalisation. Here, alongside a dedicated professional group, I will be learning about successful tools and methods to bring about strategic and measurable change.
“I’m looking forward to learning more about how we can develop innovative practices to create a long-term shift in the industry’s approach to construction, and sharing key findings with peers at nmcn who are also embracing a more digital future.”
