Energy Innovation

Why I applied...

I have always been motivated to learn new things which is why I applied to the WMG Graduate Development Programme. The scheme offers the chance to be involved in real life, exciting projects in all aspects of energy storage from high power cell making to battery recycling and e-machines. The transition from education into the working world was very smooth whilst working in an organisation that focuses on innovation and long term sustainability.

My highlights...

The great thing about the scheme is that it is rotational so you get the opportunity to experience different areas of the organisation and work with different teams. It also offers a good work and study balance, which is something that I really like. WMG encourages their staff to get involved in outreach activities at the university and outside the organisation. There is a strong focus on encouraging more women into STEM which has always been an interest of mine and something I enjoy getting involved with.

My development...

There is so much support offered here, not just from your peers, but from your mentors and managers too. There are regular discussions on how you can develop and enhance your skills and knowledge to steer your career in your chosen direction. There is such a variety of opportunities offered, such as the chance to attend professional conferences, as well as gaining a project management qualification. Progression and development is at the heart of the organisations culture and it really shows.
