I heard about my current position through a friend who is now my colleague at Zenobē. I was ready for a new challenge and Zenobē was already a reputable company with promising technologies. I pictured a great future I’d have with the company, and I was very pleased to join the Zenobē family.
I like the diversity of my team. We are a group of people from different backgrounds and with unique experiences and talents. The team works well together when developing and delivering projects, and we all learn something from each other.
Supporting the Network Infrastructure team also allows me to work closely with the wider Zenobē team. This enriches my daily work – one day I might be coordinating with the Commercial Analytics team to register our assets for grid services, another day I might be working with the Operations and Product teams to ensure we have correct documentation on the performance of our batteries.
It’s a well-known fact that the number of men exceeds the number of women within the field of engineering and construction – for many different reasons. There’s no doubt that there are many women who are equally experienced and capable as men within every industry, and I would love to see more women stepping up and becoming industry leaders.
Zenobē recognises that and believes in empowering women: that’s why I feel valued and I believe that Zenobē will be one of the leading companies in the world due to its vision, goals, values and culture. I respect the support from my colleagues, and I love that we always work together as a team.
Certainly, my advice for women would be to believe in themselves, focus on their end goal and empower each other. Before joining a new company, ensure that it has clear growth pathways and take advantage of every opportunity to learn.
Women in energy, engineering and construction have the responsibility to encourage other women’s involvement in the industry too – we can change it for the better.
