Tell us about your role at Wood
I started my career in Wood in December 2016, in the role of process engineer and I was immediately offered the opportunity to work on challenging projects. Initially the FEED relevant to an API (Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient) plant expansion and then the detailed engineering phase (EPC project) relevant to the same plant.
During these projects I’ve been involved in many varied activities related to both process design and other tasks related to the functions of the project engineer. These projects have been very useful for my personal growth and my training as a young process engineer. Training has consisted of both formal training and the most useful on-the-job training.
When you reflect on your career at Wood what makes you most proud?
Surely one of the most satisfying elements was the opportunity to see the construction of the plant that has been the subject of study and development during the previous engineering phases.
I am very proud that the company has invested heavily in me, giving me the opportunity to participate very actively in such an important and critical project.
What would you tell your friends about working at Wood?
First, the presence of a multidisciplinary environment allows you to acquire vast knowledge from the more experienced colleagues and technicians. Secondly, the very organised structure allows you to always have a reference for any working questions.
The working environment is very stimulating with continuous challenges and daily objectives. This allows me to develop a critical view and a capacity to manage the most disparate problems that can be very useful for different fields projects.
Last but not least, the working environment is very friendly and right from the start I established great relationships with colleagues.
What excites you about your future at Wood?
As for my future in Wood, I am very excited about the possibility to follow other executive projects, increasing my experience and technical skills, until I become more and more independent.
Another very important skill that I hope to develop is to create a modus operandi in my daily work with colleagues, but also in the interface with customers. I would be very excited to continue the development of my network and my ability to interface with different specialists, but also with more managerial and corporate colleagues.
