"Aquaterra is a great company to work for and I would definitely recommend sending in an application."
During my final year I applied for a work experience placement at Aquaterra. Knowing it was an engineering company, I wasn’t sure if they would have a role for a physics graduate, but I was offered a two week placement in the Riser Analysis department during the Christmas holidays, and then a second one over Easter. This lead to me being offered a place as a Graduate Analyst once I had completed my degree.
The work is both interesting and challenging and I am thoroughly enjoying it and learning all the time. I have been given the opportunity to work on projects for some of the biggest companies in the oil and gas industry, and I really enjoy being given these responsibilities and feeling that my contribution is valued. My colleagues are really friendly and happy to help or answer any questions.
Aquaterra is committed to the professional development of its employees and there are plenty of opportunities for new training and qualifications, including charterships. The first few steps of planning a career can be daunting but support and feedback is always available at Aquaterra if you ask for it.
In short, Aquaterra is a great company to work for and I would definitely recommend sending in an application.
