"I have been thrown into a wealth of experiences with JFMS from the start. This has been fantastic as gaining experience and knowledge as a recent graduate is key."
Loren Chamberlain-Clark: Offshore Wind Management System™ technical manager
What did you do at university and what attracted you to James Fisher Marine Services (JFMS)?
I studied at the University of East Anglia in Norwich, achieving a Masters in Meteorology and Oceanography. The role offered me the chance to solve problems using the specialist knowledge I gained through my degree and it provided me with the opportunity to be involved in the wide breath of services James Fisher delivers.
What's a typical day like for you?
My job is hugely varied. I regularly have different activities which tend to be dependent on the stage of the project I am involved in. I am mostly involved in managing a technical team, working on the technical specification of software and hardware for the Offshore Wind Management System (OWMSTM) and in the planning and delivery of the long-term system architecture for the product.
How have you fitted in with your team and how do you find the level of support in your role?
I work with a great close team where we all support each other and get the best out of each other.
What has been the most exciting project you have worked on so far?
My role is specifically related to the project that I am currently working on - the OWMS™ project.
Would you recommend working for JFMS?
I have been thrown into a wealth of experiences with JFMS from the start. This has been fantastic as gaining experience and knowledge as a recent graduate is key. I have been given the responsibility to be able to make a real difference to the project from the beginning and that is very rewarding.
How do you see your career developing in the next 5 years?
I would like to become a chartered marine professional.
