This could be looking at initiating document control procedures, calculating the orifice size for gas burner tips in incinerators or requisitioning gas sample cylinders for confirmation of calculated process variables. As a graduate, learning the trade of project management/engineering I am involved in all possible aspects, where possible, to allow a broad understanding of each individual role persons play in the development of large capital projects."

"A day with Wood Group PSN is anything but boring. My day starts at 7am which allows me time to deal with any emails that have come in over night and read through any offshore reports before meetings kick off at 8. The rest of the morning is taken up liaising with the project team and updating the Engineering plan. After lunch I may have a couple of short meetings and will use any spare time to review any new change requests and make updates to the plan where applicable. "
