Favourite thing to do in my job: Engaging and leading teams!
I enjoy gaming, going to the gym, watching documentaries and traveling!
I have lived in Bristol now for 9 months, I haven’t been able to explore much as we have been in lockdowns but I am looking forward to see what this city has to offer!
Prior to living here, I used to live in Portsmouth which was really enjoyable as it was near the sea side!
My home is Huddersfield, my family and friends are live there, I visit as much as I can mainly because of the great ice-cream hahaha!
My work involves me looking at new technology and ways of making the company greener
My role involves me looking at new technologies that GKN Aerospace could get involved in. This can include using planes which don’t have pilots and using different types of fuels which are better for the environment. Also, I am involved in looking at the sustainability of the whole company to make sure we are more environmentally friendly!
My Typical Day: I usually wake up around 8am and my day starts out as everyone else. At around 9am I get started with my work, every day has new and exciting challenges! During the evenings I go to the gym, or at least used to…… Later in the day, I usually catch up with friends virtually and may watch an interesting documentary related to how planes are made!
My working hours will involve me reading about new technologies related to airplanes. This could be looking at planes without pilots, greener fuels and how to make the company greener. A mix of meetings, discussions, reading and research sums up my working day!
What I'd do with the money
Depends on how much I have but something for helping make the planet greener, building schools in poorer countries and helping give water to countries who struggle with this.
I would use the money to raise awareness on sustainability for the younger generation. I would also provide them easy ways for them to improve their sustainability, jobs they could peruse, projects they can get involved in and finally the ways in which different education paths can help contribute to making a better world!
