"I am currently progressing through the chartership process to one day become a chartered environmentalist, which is actively encouraged by RHDHV."
After graduating with a BSc in Environmental Geography in 2016, I was keen to apply the knowledge I acquired at university in my career. RHDHV appealed as its environment team offered the opportunity to apply my environmental skills in real-life situations on cutting-edge projects.
Working at RHDHV, I have been introduced to a range of environmental opportunities I wasn’t aware of until I joined. Undertaking ecology surveys, preparing oil spill response plans and completing literature reviews to inform regulatory guidance demonstrate the range of opportunities I’ve had. Lately, my focus has been on supporting the consenting and post-consent process for projects across different sectors such as renewable energy and ports. My highlights include working with our clients and key stakeholders on several of the world’s largest offshore windfarms.
Beyond the projects, RHDHV provides many opportunities for networking and training. Team away days, project visits and overseas internal networking events are a fun and useful way to meet colleagues from different business units based in different places.
Pandemic aside, external events and conferences have helped expand my network of environmental/industry professionals working outside of RHDHV. I am currently progressing through the chartership process to one day become a chartered environmentalist, which is actively encouraged by RHDHV.
