“My role on the HPC project is a trainee environmental advisor with BYLOR. I am currently studying B.Sc. Hons Geography at the University of Brighton and have joined BYLOR on a 12-month industrial internship.
“My responsibilities on-site include implementing the environmental requirements from the environmental management system, monitoring and reporting our environmental performance, carrying out environmental risk assessments, providing advice to the site teams through training, competence and communication.
“It is my intention to spend as much time as possible on-site, undertaking regular inspections as well as holding briefings and talking with the workforce to ensure communication on-site is kept relevant.
“It is my responsibility to ensure that the workforce have a voice, and offer advice for the environmental obligations that they must comply with.
“I have grown up in Taunton and the opportunity to work on such a prestigious project close to home was one I could not miss. I’m very passionate about the movement towards a sustainable environment. Being part of the HPC team allows me to explore many of the innovative projects that are on-site, such as focusing on waste management schemes, reducing carbon emissions, sourcing responsibly, building efficient structures and protecting biodiversity.
“I am so passionate about the HPC project and inspiring young people like myself to become part of it, that I attend recruitment events and present to local young people on my experience at HPC.”
