Project Controls Graduate, Wood Group PSN, Aberdeen
I studied at Heriot Watt University in Edinburgh for four years and came to Wood Group through a remarkable SaltireFoundation internship program. It posted me to the company’s US headquarters in Houston. I used that initial involvement to write an award-winning dissertation; it’s already having a strongly positive effect on my personal and business development. In fact, my Wood Group experience has guided my energy industry career to date.
In the seemingly short time I have been a project controls graduate here, I’ve completed a graduate knowledge development manual for the company’s estimating function; co-coordinated the change management process for a £35,000,000 project; and completed a visit to the Elgin Platform in the North Sea’s Central Graben to gain the best possible understanding of a major offshore program. Today I’m supporting TAQA Bratani, one of our clients in the North Sea.
I wanted to commence my graduate career with a company where I could see myself as a future business leader – one that’d give me more and more responsibility internationally, from Aberdeen to Houston and far, far beyond.
I hope to keep having a direct impact on the business; to take advantage of future business and personal opportunities. Wood Group’s already demonstrated it’s willing to keep me involved.
