– MEng (Hons) Chemical Engineering
with Industrial Experience
– University of Manchester
I relocated to Aberdeen to join the ConocoPhillips’ Graduate Scheme after graduating from The University of Manchester in 2014. At this point in time I had some Chemical Engineering experience following a Year in Industry in the food sector.
My work with ConocoPhillips
I started in Aberdeen as a Process Engineer within the central Engineering team providing support to both offshore and onshore assets.
My next role involved a move from Aberdeen to Lincolnshire where I was the Start-Up Lead for the Freon Replacement Project at Theddlethorpe Gas Terminal. This was a secondment to a major capital project, providing an opportunity to experience another part of the business as well as being site based.
On completion of the Freon Replacement Project, I moved back to Aberdeen to take up a role in the Health, Safety and Environment Team predominantly focussed on Process Safety.
Having enjoyed being site based whilst at Theddlethorpe Gas Terminal, I was pleased to have the opportunity to relocate to Teesside to take up my current role as Zone Engineer.
In every role I have worked in, I have ensured that I made the most of the opportunities presented and used the experiences to inform subsequent decisions around career development.
I have developed key technical skills in each of my roles as well growing a network of contacts. I feel I have a good understanding of the business from my exposure to a wide range of company assets and departments.
I am due to take some time out from work on my upcoming maternity leave (which I’m sure will present completely different challenges to my work at ConocoPhillips!).
On my return to work I look forward to catching up with the changes that have taken place and moving forward with the company. I am keen continue moving into new and different job roles in time to ensure I keep progressing and developing new skills.
