“I have worked with GECE now for over 10 years working directly for GECE and now as a client; GECE have helped me greatly with training helping me to gain experience with job placements and over the years helping me achieve my goal of working as an engineer in the construction industry.
GECE always had time for me helping with any issues arising and guidance during my time at GECE which helped me greatly to achieve my goal of working as an engineering consultant.
Since leaving GECE I now work for one of the largest consultancy firms in Europe, we have worked together with GECE engineers for various construction projects all over the country and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend GECE for any future engineering works.”

“In Ground/Site Investigation, the most important but less acknowledged part is good site management and ability to produce geotechnical logs to approved standards. In my dealing with GECE over 8 years, I’ve seen them help to develop, train and supply good engineers from field technicians to Principal engineers to various projects across the UK. Personally, I have secured many contract positions via GECE and I find Simon and Neil very helpful, approachable and hardworking. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending their services to any serious engineer, especially if you need that break into the job place as a fresh graduate”.

“Having graduated from university with 2:1 degree in Geology, I was looking to get some work in the geotechnical industry. After sending my CV to GECE, I was contacted by them and invited to travel to their offices in Newcastle to do some geotechnical training. They were very accommodating managing to get all my training completed in one day from soil logging to emergency first aid. The courses were extremely well taught with the opportunity to do some hands on practice. Once the training was complete, work was found for me within the month and I have since been working at one of the largest remediation projects in the UK. The people working at GECE have been extremely helpful throughout the process from initial contact right through to contract work commencing, always there to answer any question you may have in a quick response time. Being a graduate it can be hard to find well paid work but GECE have been very proactive in finding me work and I would highly recommend them to any graduates looking to get into the geotechnical industry.”
Niall Kieran – Graduate Engineer
“I have worked for GECE for several years. Work includes site investigation and soil/rock logging and sampling. In addition I have worked as a CQA engineer on most if not all aspects of landfill cell construction, capping and infrastructure works. This work has taken me the all-round the country. GECE have been instrumental in obtaining much of this work. I have found the company very efficient and helpful at a professional level. They have been supportive in my career development especially in keeping my skills up to date which is a necessary requirement in ever changing demands of the job market place. The staff are pleasant and informative as well as helpful in regard with paperwork/queries; they are only a phone call or email away with a ready answer. I have no hesitation in recommending GECE as a prospective agency to work for. Indeed I have recommended several of my professional colleagues to apply to this agency for work and have yet to hear of any complaints.”
