“I've always been interested in how things work, so I jumped at the chance to escape the classroom and spend a year in industry with ScottishPower before I went to University. Then, after I graduated, I joined SP Energy Networks and I've been here ever since. Now, I work on the system design for our transmission network. It's a huge responsibility - these are projects that can cost more than a billion pounds, with an impact that lasts for decades. It makes me proud to be part of a business like that”.
