"I still feel fully supported by the company and continue to be given access to further training and development opportunities."

Ellie Kilroy, now a Climate Change Consultant, has shared her experience of being on Ricardo Energy & Environment’s Young Professionals Programme, having joined the business as an Analyst Consultant:
“I joined Ricardo in March 2015, around the time Ricardo Energy and Environment’s Young Professional Programme first started. The programme has largely consisted of workshops, where a group of around 20 to 30 analyst consultants meet to learn about topics such as project management, business development, progression, and much more.

As well as the workshops, we have organised various out-of-work events (usually involving some food and a good pub!) and lunch-time meetings to give each other insight in to what we’re all getting up to at work. These lunchtime meetings have been really useful in understanding the diversity of work across the business.

The programme itself has really helped with understanding how the business works, what is expected of an analyst consultant, how to progress, and, most importantly for me, getting to know the other graduates. Having now completed the Young Professional Programme, I still feel fully supported by the company and continue to be given access to further training and development opportunities.”
