"The best thing about my role is to have the opportunity to be involved in wind energy projects from conception to full implementation."

Why did you decide to join Mott MacDonald?

At the end of my Renewable Energy MSc I had to search for an internship in a company to finalise my degree. I learned about Mott MacDonald from a lecturer who advised me to send my CV to the company. At that time the Mott MacDonald Renewable Energy team was involved in a very interesting project and required a fluent Spanish speaker with an engineering degree and renewable energy background. I was hired for the internship and five months later I received a full-time job offer in the company. I decided to accept the offer as the internship had given me the opportunity to identify the large number interesting projects that the company was involved in and the career development opportunities that the company offers.

What is the best thing about your role?

The best thing about my role is to have the opportunity to be involved in wind energy projects from conception to full implementation and to have the satisfaction to contribute to the development of more clean energy for the world.

How would you describe the culture of Mott MacDonald?

All employees can build a career in the company and the company offers opportunities for long term development. A high degree of ownership is also given to individuals, which builds up an attractive professional profile.

What is the best thing about the country you are from?

The best thing about Colombia is its biodiversity. Colombia has a large number of natural species and resources that not many other countries have. The Colombian people also make the country to be a friendly and interesting place to visit. Finally, a very good football team!

How many years have you worked for Mott MacDonald, and what has been your proudest achievement to date?

I have worked a total of four years at Mott MacDonald, counting my internship period. My proudest achievement up to this point is to have become the main focal point internally and externally for our wind energy projects in Latin America.

When you’re not in the office where can you be found?

When I’m not in the office you could find me running along the Brighton sea front or cooking a meal at home.

Who or what inspires you?

My family is what inspires me and my intention to try to make a better world for future generations.
