Ramboll New Markets is a broad and extensive area of the Ramboll group, with staff in several locations and regions. One of the biggest markets is that of Saudi Arabia where graduate environmental engineer Fatimah Al Hussain is based within the environmental team in Jeddah.
Fatimah comes from a small town on the outskirts of Damman, Saudi Arabia called Siahat, where she was born and raised. She later received her Bachelor’s in Chemistry from King Fasial University in 2008 before deciding to go to the United States to continue her Master’s degree at the University of Colorado Denver. Upon completion, Fatima was awarded a Master of Science in Environmental science with specialization in Environmental Health in 2012, paving the way for her growing interest in a career within Environment. “After I finished my bachelors and became versed in environmental issues, I decided I wanted to be part of the solution for these environmental problems and improve quality.”
Fatimah then continued to establish herself and her career within the environmental services through internships and training for one year while still in the US, before returning to Saudi Arabia and joining Ramboll in January 2014. As her first job opportunity, Fatima’s main goal for joining the company is to learn.
“I chose to work for Ramboll so I can be creative and work in a team. This is the atmosphere of working that would meet my ambitions of applying the environmental knowledge I gained as well as being able to learn more about the field I love, environment,.” Working at Ramboll is such an amazing experience to see and observe people from all over the world grow and become happier with what they are doing. Working in such warm and great environment which every staff members truly cares about the others. I am so thankful to be part of great team.
Of course, work only covers one aspect of Fatimah’s busy life. In her free time she enjoys reading short stories and listening to music.
Overall, Fatimah enjoys free time with friends and living life to the fullest. “I am friendly and I like to make friends and prefer truth and honesty in friendships. I like laughing and enjoying my time. I am lively person.”
