Hear what some of our employees think about working for us…

During my year the entire team dedicated so much time and effort to ensure that I could learn as much as possible and make the most out of the experience. I had the opportunity to grow alongside a fun, outgoing, and hard-working team; and couldn't have possibly made a better choice to start a career in transport and development economics. Looking forward to continuing my relationship with Volterra and its team in the future

My placement at Volterra has given me the opportunity to grow and build essential professional skills in a very welcoming and friendly environment. One big advantage has been the structure of the company which has allowed me to interact with senior members and receive professional guidance and full support. I have also had the chance to work in a large variety of industries. I would recommend Volterra to any economics or mathematics student.
