Role: Senior Consultant
“I joined React as a Graduate Consultant Engineer in 2019, following a Summer Placement with the company between my third and fourth years of University. I am approaching the end of my fourth year with React, and am now a Senior Consultant (working towards becoming a Principal Consultant) and a Consultancy Area Lead covering the Reprocessing Decommissioning business area. In my role I am responsible for providing delivery, development and wellbeing support to my team members, and developing and implementing the strategy for Reprocessing Decommissioning across a range of client areas. I am also ready to submit my Chartership application to the Institution of Mechanical Engineers.
At React, you are given significant responsibility relatively early in your career, and your development is supported by the wealth of experience within the company. I have been exposed to numerous high-complexity engineering challenges, project, programme and portfolio management requirements, and nationally important decommissioning operations, within an environment which encourages learning as much as possible. Over the past 16-months, or so, I have been providing management and technical delivery support to an Improvement Programme which, if successful, is intended to enable the realisation of approximately £1.5Bn in savings for the UK Taxpayer.”
“A large element of my role is associated with development of myself, the business, and others. I facilitate a monthly Developing Engineers Forum to enable engineers of all experiences to come together to discuss our experiences and learning. I have been involved in supporting and delivering STEM activities for local children and young people through the React Foundation; enhancing the awareness of Engineering and its associated opportunities.
As a small company, it’s important to develop more meaningful relationships with colleagues to achieve and maintain a core culture of support and development. I initiated React’s weekly five-a-side football evening, which anyone can attend.”
