After completing my undergraduate degree in Economics, I spent just over two years working in financial services at an investment bank. However, I’d always been interested in the relationship amongst finance, economics and sustainability, so I returned to university to pursue a Master’s degree in Environmental Economics and Climate Change. While completing this degree, I joined the Sustainability and Climate Change internship programme and was offered a full-time position which I started at the end of 2015.
One of the best parts of being on the Sustainability and Climate Change team is the variety of projects and subject areas. This has allowed me to gain experience in areas I’m interested in, while exploring areas that I’d never considered before. I’ve been able to take a remarkable amount of ownership over the direction of my career in a relatively short space of time.
