Quensh is passionate about developing the ‘next generation’ of HSEQ talent, and recently, our HSEQ Advisor Harris Simpson was invited back to RGU (Robert Gordon University) to speak with a panel of recent graduates and industry specialists about career pathways.
The ‘Spotlight on Law’ webinar, saw a professional panel provide insight on career opportunities after studying a degree in law. The panel included a wide range of experts including Alanah Mills (Employment Lawyer – Ledingham Chalmers), Calum Swanson (Lecturer in Enterprise – NESCOL), Emma Hadden (Cost Controller/Contracts & Supply Chain Focal Point – Global E&C), Gabriella Duncan (Trainee Solicitor – Raeburn, Christie, Clark & Wallace) and Gary Senff (Senior HR Business Partner – First Group PLC).
Harris took the opportunity to discuss how his time at RGU studying Law & Management helped equip him to provide advice on a variety of HSEQ matters as well as supporting clients with legal compliance and requirements on Health, Safety, Environmental and Information Security.
No stranger to talking and giving advice to students, having previously presented to RGU’s ‘Health and Safety Management’ module students and how he put the course into action, Harris says:
“I wanted to take part because I felt it was important for students to see the career paths they can have in HSEQ management and how I think my university course has helped me with my role at Quensh. It was great to get the chance to champion HSEQ as a first career choice and to promote Quensh as a company who embraces mentoring and supporting the next generation. Our Trainee HSEQ Coordinator is a prime example of the work Quensh does to develop young talent whilst supporting clients. Also, it is great to give something back. With just a small amount of my time, I was able to offer a perspective that could be really insightful for young students considering the many options available to them.”
