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.
