I joined Assurity Consulting in September 2019 as a Consultant, after studying a Masters in Sustainability. I had actually already met Assurity Consulting at a careers fair at my university, whilst I was studying my BSc in Geography. After finishing my Masters degree, I remembered the Graduate Consultant role at Assurity Consulting – and decided to apply via their website!
Since I first started in 2019, I have trained in a number of services and in June 2022, I qualified as a Senior Consultant. I began by delivering our Workplace Environmental Assessments, and now carry out Legionella risk assessments and am a part of our Environmental team, delivering environmental management reviews. Assurity Consulting also supported me in completing the BSI 14001 Understanding the Standard course and funds my membership with the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment. These qualifications and memberships aren’t something I would have necessarily attained by myself, so it’s a great opportunity to have had.
I really enjoy the range of services I deliver, as this makes my role very varied. I never feel like I’m just writing the same report over and over again, and every week is different. From visiting sites all over the country, to holding meetings with our different customers and managing their accounts – no two days are the same. I also get to visit all kinds of different buildings – from iconic London skyscrapers, to esteemed theatres. One time I even ran into Hugh Grant during a site visit!
For me the best part about working at Assurity Consulting is the people. Everyone is really friendly and supportive, and there is always someone to go to if you have a question - which goes a long way. There are also great benefits to the role, from starting on 25 days holiday from the get-go, to the different social events the company throws where we can all get together and have some fun. There’s great focus on employee wellbeing and it’s a great company to work for.
