Emma Young is an Engineer for Sustrans in Scotland. Her involvement in Sustrans’ Stewardship programme has developed her skills as an engineer.
Since joining the team in 2018 as a graduate, Emma has gained a huge variety of experience. From assisting with the preparation of construction tenders, site supervision and contract management to leading on structural vegetation clearance works, her role has improved her understanding of both civil and structural engineer works.
She is currently working on the detailed design of a section of National Cycle Network to ensure its design life for a further 20 years.
Working for Sustrans has allowed her to get outdoors and improve access for those less able.
