Title: CMS Advisor
Region: Aberdeen, United Kingdom
Time with company: Since October 2017
What do you do at Energy Resourcing?
I am a CMS Advisor for Energy Resourcing based in Aberdeen. I look after the contractors from issuing their offer, managing the onboarding and to assist with any contractual queries. I am also responsible for developing and maintaining relationships with key stakeholders such as the project people team and client managers.
Are you working on any specific projects at the moment?
I currently look after 22 individual projects for variety of internal clients. I also look after all our external clients, where we have contractors working in multiple locations onshore and offshore.
How did you get into your current career?
I worked in the beauty industry for 8 years with Estee Lauder, then decided that I wanted a change so applied for a receptionist role with a drilling company. From there I progressed into a logistics role with them but unfortunately lost my job in the oil downturn. After that, I got a temporary contract with Worley in the logistics team, and from there never looked back. I helped on many contracts in my logistics role and joined the Primat now Energy Resourcing team around 5 years ago.
What’s the best part of your job?
No two days are the same in CMS so every day is a new challenge. We also have a great team who I have learned so much from as everyone has different strengths and ways to deal with situations.
What challenges have you had to overcome to get to where you are today?
Losing my job and being unemployed for a period during the oil downturn was very tough as there wasn’t many opportunities out there at the time. Keeping focused and positive on finding a new role wasn’t easy but has made me even more determined to be a success in any future role I may have.
Any words of wisdom you live by?
Stay positive and happy. Work hard and don’t give up. Be open to criticism and keep learning.
What keeps you at Energy Resourcing?
I’m sure most people will say the same, but working in a great team really does mean a lot to me and is probably the main thing that keeps me with Energy Resourcing. Over the last few years, flexible working has also become a major benefit to me, and Energy Resourcing’s commitment to continue that has made it easy to stay with the company.
What do you like to do outside of work?
I enjoy going to the gym and to Yoga classes to stay fit and healthy. I love spending time with my 3 year old Niece Brooklyn and taking her on adventures.
If you hadn’t got into your current career… what would you have become?
When I was younger I wanted to be a Air Hostess but after being on a long haul flight I soon changed my mind.
