My advice to people interested in renewable energy careers would be to to think about the type of role that you would like to get into when you pick a course at university. If you are unsure at all, then enquire to see if you can shadow a few people in different roles.
Hi, my name is Julie and I am a Site and Installation Team Leader and Project Manager at Senvion; a wind turbine manufacturer. I have been in this job for just over five years. I always wanted to be part of making a better environmental future for everyone now and generations to come – my current job allows me to do just that.
I initially studied Product Design Engineering which got me into Engineering and Project Management in the sector but I eventually went on to complete an MSc in Energy at university. I was head hunted for the role while studying for my MSc so it certainly helped.
