After I had finished my master’s course, I was looking to work for a company which allowed me to further develop myself but also contribute to making a difference to the world. I chose Aquaterra Energy as even though they are a small/local company they operate globally, this really appealed to me as I knew I would have numerous opportunities to be able to have regular interactions with senior members of management and learn directly from them. Additionally, working here presented the opportunity for me to play a part in driving the change within the oil and gas industry as we look to move into the renewables space.
My journey here has been nothing but a rewarding experience. From day one I have always had the opportunity to get stuck in and contribute to the team/department’s efforts to achieving our goals. Personal and career development is at the heart of everything we do here, everyone from graduates to senior members of staff are encouraged to push beyond their comfort zone with the aim of learning something new and developing oneself.
The standout moment for me during my time so far has been the opportunity to follow my work during my graduate rotation. During my rotation in the Design Engineering department, I was given the opportunity to help design a new piece of equipment. Then during my time in the QHSE department I was given the opportunity to travel to Aberdeen and witness the manufacturing and testing of the equipment I had initially helped to design. From this I was able to have a meaningful and lasting impact on the business and be able to follow my work from conception to final product.
