Career Progression Presentation for University of Hull Masters Students
WRM’s Senior Permitting Consultant Tom Broderick recently attended the University of Hull to give a talk on career progression, which centred on Tom’s employment experience after completing his MSc. The talk aimed to provide students working towards an MSc in Renewable Energy as well as Environmental Change, Management and Monitoring, with industry knowledge of how to apply themselves to attain roles in their chosen fields. The presentation covered Tom’s background, an overview of the Energy Works project where Tom found his first employment role, and his current position at WRM.
The talk entitled ‘An Overview of my Chosen Career Path following Completion of a University Postgraduate Degree: A perspective on life as an environmental consultant’ was given to the students before they attended a site visit at Energy Works. It was hoped that this career presentation combined with a visit to Energy Works would allow the students to see where their qualifications may take them in the future.
Tom previously completed his Masters degree (Environmental Technology, with merit) at the University of Hull in 2014. Following this, Tom was appointed as a Junior Analyst at Spencer Group. It was in this role that Tom worked on the development phase of Energy Works Hull; a £200 million gasification plant which is currently being built in Hull. Once the development phase of the Energy Works Gasification Plant was complete, Tom moved roles within Spencer Group before finally arriving at WRM to pursue a career in consultancy.
