Dave Shemmans - Chief Executive Officer, Ricardo Plc  Mission Statement

Here at Ricardo, we value the importance of recruiting the right graduate.  We have, over the years, developed strong links with universities and professional institutes to ensure our engineers are among the best in the world.  Many engineers have been involved in the technology you and I drive today, and over the years have introduced new concepts of engineering that we take for granted.  All the Directors, without exception, are committed to graduate recruitment and development and it therefore gives me great pleasure in giving you the opportunity to be part of tomorrow's technology.
