I was able to complete a work placement at Dawn Farms before going into my final year of my studies. As soon as I started the Graduate Development Programme, I became involved in a major site expansion project which was a great experience and introduction to the company.
The fast-paced nature of the job offers both hands on and theoretical challenges which suit me perfectly. Within the department I am responsible for monitoring the energy usage across all plants, which is part of the ISO 50001 accreditation we gained last year.
I have gotten the opportunity to manage many projects and feel like I am an integral part of the Engineering department. This allows me maximum exposure to all facets of the business such as dealing with various internal departments and external contractors to time management skills and how to get the most productivity out of meetings.These professional skills have also been developed through an IBEC/DIT diploma in professional competence.
