My ASCO journey so far

Back in 2010 I was looking to progress my career and develop new skills and experience and saw a chance to join ASCO which looked like it would give me the opportunities I was seeking. My journey so far has been very varied, and I have been lucky enough to have been able to work in different parts of the business and learn a lot. I have also been lucky enough to work with some incredible people through this time.

In my time at ASCO I have gained a wealth of experience from working in a number of different departments and in different positions. Having initially started in the HSSEQ department, I have also worked with ASCO's lifting specialists, NSL, within the Aberdeen Operations team, and most recently with the UK Commercial team as part of the Tendering team. I have gained an amazing level of experience which has helped me develop my skills even further. In 2018 ASCO offered me the opportunity to complete a SVQ in management at SCQF Level 9, which allowed me to demonstrate competence in the related skills I had gained during my time at ASCO.

Joining the UK Commercial Team

After looking to learn more about a different part of the business, I recently moved into a Key Account Manager role within the UK Commercial Team. This has been an amazing opportunity for my career development, giving me new skills while working directly with our clients.

Although this role is new to me, I have enjoyed being part of a supportive hardworking team. This role gives me the opportunity to learn a different part of the business that up until now I had not experienced. Key Account Management can be hard work but rewarding when you get to work with all areas of the business, building new relationships and working together.
