“I did some work in retail after I left school and liked organising projects. Here I’m going to University for my qualifications as part of my project management training and I can go from office to out in the field to see how the projects work. I’m earning while I learn. I think our environmental commitment is important to everyone here. It’s talked about a lot and it’s very important to me.”
