What are your main responsibilities?

Taking the lead and providing support on multiple projects, no two days are ever the same. From corporate strategy and Environmental Management Systems, to technical building audits and green building certifications, to in-depth monitoring and improvement programmes. I have a varied set of responsibilities at EVORA, but ultimately, my role is clear; to deliver first class sustainability solutions for our clients.

What’s the best part of your job?

The best part of my job is undoubtedly working with the brilliant team around me. There is such a diverse set of individuals, yet we are always able to support one another with our can-do attitude; a culture that permeates through to the work we deliver.

What did you want to be when you grew up?

When I was just old enough to know what a marine biologist was, I thought that was exactly what I wanted to be. With an obsession with all that was aquatic, it seemed like an obvious choice. I later decided I’d be much better placed to just take up fishing.
