Jennifer's line manager, Steven Burns, also recently moved into a new role as Operations Manager.

How did you progress from a Proposal Engineer to your position today? And how do you use what you learned to support your team's development?
"Early in my career, I rolled up my sleeves and got stuck into different tasks and roles. That can come with uncertainty, but it can also be so rewarding. Learning on the job was really important to my development. And now, as a manager, I try to create an environment that gives my team the support needed to learn new skills and work autonomously."
Jennifer spoke about the impact of management support in her career. What do you look for in people, and why do you put your team's personal development first?
"I look for team players who are willing to get involved and want to grow. That's why we championed Jennifer and Graeme to move into new positions with more responsibility.
"By investing time and energy in your people, you improve their skillsets to provide a better client experience, build a higher-performing team and produce the future leaders of Petrofac. Not only that, but it gives you a real sense of achievement to help people take the next step in their lives and career."
