Graduate profile: Jack Abbott
I am currently on a graduate scheme with EDF Energy, as an Energy Analyst. The scheme consists of four placements in different areas of the business, in order to gain a well rounded view of the business and to understand the different areas of the complex energy industry.
Studying MSci Physics gave me a good understanding of the technical requirements behind the industry and also gave me the analytical quality desired for this scheme. The support from my tutor and other members of staff helped me make sure I was making the correct career choice and for the right reasons.
Having studied abroad for a year, I have the useful asset of speaking French, which as EDF is a French company, opens up many avenues to working in different areas of the business.
