Jo Bailey, HSES Graduate Stream

Joined: 2016

Stream: HSES

Studied: Chemical Engineering at Swansea University

Placements: Process Safety in Distributed Energy & Power for ENER-G (Salford) , Technical safety & Projects – Exploration & Production (Aberdeen)

Why I chose Centrica: Their emphasis on process safety and after completing a year in industry with Centrica, I knew it was a great place to work with a range of development opportunities.

What I enjoy most about my work: No two days are the same due to the range of work that comes up for example: project verification and compliance support, technical notes on fire safety, requirements of safety critical equipment, spreading awareness of major accident hazards and how they can be controlled to name a few! 

Highlight of the grad scheme (so far): Getting to travel as well as work within an office environment (offshore platforms, supply vessels, gas terminals, power stations).

Advice to applicants: Be proactive with your development needs and get stuck in with a range of work (if you have the time to) – the experience you get will be invaluable and you’ll have a great network of people who will remember how you helped them out!
