FCC Environment

Other Stories

Shannon graduated from university with an English degree and is now in the waste industry. Find out how she's breaking stereotypes and how she is using and developing her diverse skill set at FCC Environment.

What do you do and where do you do it?

I am an Assistant Contract Manager managing waste removal at FCC Environment. I am based in Conisbrough, South Yorkshire and cover the Barnsley, Doncaster and Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council areas.

 

Tell us the best bits about your role.

I enjoy the variety of work and projects I have to manage – it includes managing activities on site to Council meetings to writing management systems and designing signage and induction leaflets.

 

How did you get into it?

I really enjoyed the waste management module on my post-graduate diploma at university and wanted to see what the industry had to offer. I joined an 18-month graduate programme at FCC Environment in 2015. I started work as an Assistant Contract Manager in May 2017.

I enjoy the variety of work and projects I have to manage – it includes managing activities on site to Council meetings to writing management systems and designing signage and induction leaflets.

What would you say to someone who had second thoughts about going into waste management, especially as a woman?  

Don’t let reservations or stereotypes hold you back – if a role interests you, go for it! Waste is a vast and ever changing industry that is full of interesting challenges and opportunities that requires all sorts of skills.

 

You’re well qualified, so I suppose you didn’t need any other support?

Yes, I am but waste is a complex industry. FCC Environment has supported and encouraged me throughout the programme and given me every opportunity to develop my skills further in my roles since. I use skills from a variety of sources every day, from my English degree to waste management training I am undergoing presently.

 

So it’s not all about qualifications, then?

No. FCC Environment is really keen to get the right individuals for their business, above and beyond qualifications. Individuals with the right attitude and skills is their priority.

Join the energy and utilities sector as a graduate and you will join a fast-paced and dynamic environment with exceptional training, career progression opportunities and higher than average salaries.
