Careers rarely develop the way we plan them. Our career path often takes many twists and turns, with particular events, choices and people influencing our direction.
We asked Chloe Kinsella from ESB to give some advice for people considering this job:
People working as carbon specialist come from many different backgrounds. In fact one of my former colleagues came from a genetics background, while the others were from an engineering background.
In Ireland at the moment it is quite hard to get into the carbon space so you may have to go abroad for training.
To pursue a career in engineering it is important to have a strong technical background.

Undergraduate awards typically reflect three to five years of study after secondary school and include Ordinary (Level 7) and Honours Bachelor Degrees and Higher Diplomas (Level 8's).
Undergraduate awards may be achieved directly or through a series of progression steps. Learners may choose to progress upwards from a Level 5 to a Level 6, Level 7 and finally a Level 8.
Undergraduate awards are awarded by the HETAC or Higher Education Institutes.
3rd level Graduates are qualified for a wide range of occupations, and their education prepares them for roles involving specific skills, and for coordinating, supervising, managing, or training others. Examples include accountants, sales managers, computer programmers, teachers, chemists, environmental engineers, criminal investigators, and financial analysts.
Engineers are concerned with developing economical and safe solutions to practical problems, by applying mathematics and scientific knowledge while considering technical constraints. On entry into the Engineering programme, four different Bachelor degree course options will be open to you as follows:
In Semester 1 you will study modules in areas of Engineering, Mathematics, Engineering Mechanics, Chemistry for Engineers and Computing. By the end of the first semester you will have a basic understanding of the core areas of engineering which will help you in making your choice of engineering programme.
