After achieving a degree in Earth and Environmental Science, Jamie wanted to make a real impact on the environmental performance of big organisations. Veolia provided this opportunity.
Throughout, I experienced high quality training and projects. These developed my business and technical skills. By far the biggest highlight was visiting our underground storage facility, Minosus – and being given my own customer account to manage.
I’m now a National Account Manager. I work within our Commercial Services business, serving 13 customers who have sites across the UK. I make sure we provide them with a service that best makes use of their valuable resources.
I’m making the positive difference I wanted to. Increasing customer recycling, reducing environmental impact, and providing solutions to improve our service. It’s all adding up to make real changes happen.
It’s professional, friendly environment. My line manager has been incredibly supportive, as have the rest of the National Accounts team. And it feels good to work with customers that have a real desire to reduce their impact on the environment.
I’m proud of my job. A good example is when I was coming to the end of the two year graduate programme. I was given a new National Account customer to manage. This meant mobilising our services to multiple sites across the UK. I did all this while maintaining high levels of service.
I would definitely recommend doing your homework. The Veolia website is a valuable source of information that will really help you out with the application. During the assessment centres and interviews, be yourself and try to stay relaxed. You’ll better represent yourself on the day.
