"All in all I have had a very enjoyable first few years at Aquaterra Energy and look forward to many more."
I have been with the company for three years having graduated from Loughborough University in 2014 with a Masters in civil engineering. There can be no denying that I joined the oil and gas industry as it crashed, however three years on amidst widespread turmoil within the sector, I can honestly say this has been a fantastic place to work over the period. Looking at the industry from the outside I may have been anxious about joining with all the negative press that has surrounded it recently, however from the inside there is definitely a bright future for Aquaterra Energy.
Working within a relatively small company there is plenty of opportunity to take on significant responsibility very quickly, this is not something to be perturbed by however as you will always find someone willing to spend time with you to guide through any difficulties. If you are looking for a challenge and somewhere that is going to nourish your development then I couldn’t recommend Aquaterra Energy more.
Travel is part and parcel of the oil and gas industry, depending on which department you choose to join within the company you can be almost certain of some opportunity to do so. Personally I have spent a significant amount of time, approximately 6 months, working in Egypt during my first three years with Aquaterra Energy, an experience that was not only exciting but has also changed my outlook on the world quite considerably.
If you are looking to further your career via the route of chartership you will find Aquaterra Energy very supportive, that said you won’t be forced through the process as you might working in some companies, it is very much a self-driven exercise but with excellent support available if requested.
All in all I have had a very enjoyable first few years at Aquaterra Energy and look forward to many more.
