Read below to find out more about Jack's journey to becoming a Senior Consultant at Ricardo.
My role at Ricardo Energy & Environment is as a Consultant in the Due Diligence and Expert Witness business area of the Infrastructure & Utilities – Waste practice. I first joined Ricardo in 2015 as part of a three-month placement for my master’s degree and joined the team full time shortly after. It was a natural step to join the graduate/young professionals programme, and I was one of the first to trial the programme at the very first away day.
It has been great to see the programme expand and more graduates/young professionals go through a similar experience, even if it does make me feel a little old!
I've been involved in quite a range of different projects since joining. These have been from market due diligence and feedstock assessments for investors, looking to source waste for their treatment technology, to environmental permit applications and on site monitoring.
The wide range of work has been the most interesting and enjoyable experience, as at an early stage of my career I like to try and explore different things.
I work in a well-motivated team that has exciting future growth goals and colleagues who help to challenge me and support my development.
