Project manager

"It's a small industry... you get to meet people who love what they do, and are good at what they do. So you're learning from them as well."

Vicky works at the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult, a not-for-profit innovation and research centre that supports the development of offshore wind, wave and tidal technologies.

Managing a portfolio of marine energy projects makes full use of her background in hydrogeology but the biggest part of her job is about bringing people together so they can collaborate. She makes sure the right people from different teams, companies and organisations can meet and communicate and that each project is making progress within its timescales and budget.
