What gives you most satisfaction in your work?
When we come together across all the engineering disciplines on a project or to solve a plant problem we can add real value and I enjoy working in these diverse teams.
Why did you choose RWE TI?
The variety and interest in the work and the opportunity to expand my understanding by working in the RWE team.
“Our aim is your success!”
What it means to me:
I’m used to discussing and providing guidance to our own operational plants. When it comes to third party clients, as far as possible I like to think we consider the problems and offer the solutions, as if the plant was our own and we are part of your team.
