Thomas Betts

Business Analyst

Hi, I’m an Economics graduate from the University of Manchester and Business Analyst at Civic Engineers. Civic have given me my first taste of work since completing my degree and the opportunity to study a masters in Urban Regeneration & Development at the same time. Not a combination I had planned when I was at university, however with the expert support of the team and the opportunity to work on place changing projects, it was an easy choice to make.

Away from work I enjoy 5-A-Side football, the odd round of golf, live music and comedy and have recently developed a taste for travel since completing a 2,300 mile road trip around Western USA. Of particular interest to me is the album Agaetis Byrjun by Sigur Rós. I have a vinyl copy of the album hung on the wall above my bed. The album is sung in Icelandic and is filled with layers of unusual ethereal sounds coupled with high falsettos. It’s unlike anything I’ve ever heard and is the perfect accompaniment to those rainy Manchester evenings.
