The Graduate Path
Meet Our Former Graduates
Now Shift Manager
Ben joined us in 2017 as a Trainee Graduate – Engineer
“I am currently learning the layout and systems involved within the plant, which may include tracing pipework or shadowing operatives. I have also been involved in several projects: a review of the gas cleaning reagents as well as reagent disposal and even a coffee cup recycling initiative. My most memorable moment so far was climbing inside one of the gigantic boilers – we started in the furnace and climbed through the radiant shift into the boiler bank. I love the fact that it’s a ‘hands-on’ kind of plant which means that if you enjoy the mechanical side of engineering, there is plenty of machinery to work on.”
Now Deputy Capital Projects Manager
Tola joined us in 2017 as a Graduate Trainee – Engineer
“As a person who excels in a dynamic environment, I am happy that no two days are the same. I am currently rotating across the Operations Team which involves shadowing various members of the team to attain an extensive understanding of the power plant and how it is run efficiently. I particularly enjoyed the lime project where I was involved in the optimisation of the plant operation through formulating a technical methodology and conducting data analysis to gauging the efficacy of different lime types within the plant’s lime stream.”
Graduate Trainee Engineer
Kenneth joined us in 2017 as a Trainee Graduate – Engineer
“I had no idea how much engineering and chemical engineering was involved in the Waste & Recycling business and can see the industry becoming increasingly ‘on the radar’ for graduates with a scientific background.”
