Eleanor joined FCC Environment’s graduate management trainee programme in September 2019. The graduation programme has allowed Eleanor to complete different rotations throughout the company, giving her experience across a range of different functions.

Eleanor has been in her current role at FCC Environment’s Lincoln energy from waste (EfW) plant for three months and is responsible for its safe and efficient operation. “No two days at the plant are the same, I really love the diversity that the role brings,” comments Eleanor. “I have day-to-day tasks to undertake, such as routine inspections of the pant and analysis of its performance, which are of course vital to its day-to-day running. There are other days where I may need to respond to more unexpected issues, such as a breakdown, which always present new and interesting challenges, working to get things back up and running.”

Eleanor is keen to see more women enter into engineering careers in the sector and for perceptions to change by spreading the word to potential candidates at every opportunity:

When most people think about the waste and recycling industry, often the first thing that comes to mind is bin men, but there is so much more to the industry and so many more opportunities. I think it is really important that as a sector we promote engineering roles to school and university students, actively encouraging more young women to join the industry. Speaking from personal experience, I rarely saw a waste management company at any of the job fairs I attended, and it’s important to have women at the fair for candidates to speak to.
