CAREER PLAN ESSAYS
My country has a natural resource base with high growth potential: it is one of the top four countries in the world for reserves of shale oil and gas and top five world producer of agricultural commodities such as soy and maize.
With that in mind and considering my interests and previous professional experience, my immediate plan after I return to my home country is to continue working in the Oil & Gas industry in order to contribute to its development into a major energy producer, having as first goals the environment care and energy efficiency in its processes.
More specifically, my intention is to continue with my current employment with XXX which is leading a refinery expansion project. The project has a wide scope and it will take a total of ten years to manage the start-up of all the process units required to meet national and regional demand, reducing reliance on imports; and to get the grade of ultra-low sulfur mandatory specifications.
I am convinced that the curriculum that is included in the UK master will provide me with highly relevant knowledge in such a way that, combined with my background, will enable me to get a Project Manager Position in this expansion. Not only will I manage and coach teams, but I also will gain an in-depth insight of the corporate business and I will broaden my network with many influential people from my country energy scenario. Interestingly enough, XXX has recently merged with British Petroleum to integrate the major private oil company in the country, which allows me to expand my horizon even more to a global energy scenario and contribute to this relationship, introducing UK´s relevant people and companies that I will have met by then.
As the years pass, and not only my country but also the whole world changes their energy matrix for a cleaner one, I plan to migrate my expertise into the field of renewable energy. Eventually, I see myself working to boost alternative energy projects and reach my country sights on 20 per cent renewables by 2025.
Furthermore, my country is clearly coming out as a biofuel international supplier due to the great abundance of raw materials, being able to satisfy UK target with Renewable Transport Fuels Obligation (RTFO) requirements in the meantime to the electrification of transport transition via hybrids. Thus, I will be delighted to meet the dual change of working on projects to supply the energy the UK needs to grow and prosper, while also reducing carbon emission.
Looking at the picture overall, I see myself becoming a leader on strategic planning, development, execution and operation of renewable energy projects, building high performance teams and encouraging others about clean, safe and cheap energy, whether it´d be from a company or from a public agency such as the Energy and Mining or Production Ministry.
With my determination and invaluable training in the UK, I will be able to get my future professional goals joining them with the UK corporate interests in our country.
Only by cooperation between UK's expertise in the field of advanced energy and the potential of our natural resources can a better and profitable future be achieved; following a remarkable global energy outlook, ultimately making an impact to my country's socio-economic development.
Having this in sight is that I see myself fostering my managerial skills in a challenging atmosphere such as the one that Chevening Community provides.
