Kimberley’s Story

Case Studies: Kimberley’s Story

Position: Graduate Trainee Commercial Analyst
Location: Glasgow, Scotland

Energetics provides the ideal opportunity and support for Graduates

Kimberley had recently graduated from university with a degree in Management Technology & Enterprise and while looking to find related employment, continued working as a supervisor at a supermarket. A friend working in the HR department at Energetics alerted Kimberley to an administrative technical clerical role within the support services department, and seeing an opportunity to gain experience in an office environment, Kimberley applied and was successfully recruited.

Within one year, an internal promotion opportunity came up to cover a maternity role as a Graduate Trainee Commercial Analyst with a business degree, so Kimberley applied and was delighted to be offered the job.

marksI have had so much encouragement and support from everyone around me since taking on this role as Trainee Commercial Analyst. Managers in different parts of the business are all extremely approachable and there is always someone that knows something if I need any help!”

Kimberley’s job is very varied, and ranges from issuing asset values to colleagues in Design and Build during the quotation process of a project, through to creating the MPANs (Meter Point Administration Number) and their associated Line Loss Factors when a project is accepted. This is a vital part of the process to ensure that when Kym is billing the suppliers for DUoS (Distribution Use of System) Charges, Energetics Electricity is maximising its potential income. As this involves large sums of money Kimberley is extremely proud to be entrusted with this procedure.


Kimberley comments

marksI’m still learning every day from simple things like formulas in Excel, to getting to grips with our new business system. I’ve learnt a lot from both the hands-on element of the role, and from my peers with over ten years’ experience in the multi-utility sector.”

In encouraging younger candidates or graduates to apply for a job with Energetics, Kimberley concludes

marksI believe I am a great example of how Energetics provides a great environment to support and nurture skills. The company has given me a great opportunity to utilise my degree, allowing me to fulfil my potential in the office environment I strived to work in whilst at University.”

In March 2016, Kimberley completed her graduate traineeship and is now working in Energetics’ Asset team as a Commercial Analyst. She says about her promotion “It’s been tough but very interesting to apply the analysis tools learned from my graduate training and previous degree course and dissertation, to the job.”
