Neil Young, Brockwell Energy’s Technical Director, is delighted to reveal two new major achievements for colleagues Gavin Miller and Emma Farrell.

“Our company ethos has and will continue to include nurturing and developing talent within the organisation,” he says. “We highly value our extended family of employees and actively encourage professional and personal development. This is why Brockwell Energy invest heavily in structured personal development plans, training programmes and sponsor fantastic opportunities to upskill our team.

“Today we’re proud to announce our latest sponsorship has seen Gavin and Emma achieve important milestones.”

Congratulations, Gavin Miller!

Gavin, who is Brockwell’s SHEQA Manager, has secured an NEBOSH National General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety.

Trusted by many prestigious organisations – such as Orsted, Balfour Beatty and Mott MacDonald – this gold standard in health and safety can help minimise workplace injuries and illness, boost employee wellbeing and demonstrate a commitment to health and safety.

Gavin says: “We encourage professional development in all our staff, from director levels to graduates, so I was delighted to achieve the NEBOSH General Certificate. This supports my role in corporate SHEQA oversight and the mentoring of my colleagues and stakeholders in best practice.

“Compliance with legislation and the safety of our staff and contractors is of the utmost importance to our business. Experience and adaptability are important but we also need to ensure we continue to develop as professionals.

“I’m responsible for ensuring we have a robust management system in place to ensure we comply with the legislation and best practice for our industry. Following our achievement of certification to ISO 9001, ISO 45001 and ISO 14001, I felt it was time to make sure I refreshed myself with current, up-to-date training on health and safety.”

Congratulations, Emma Farrell!

Emma, whose current role within Brockwell is Administration Officer, has achieved an HNC in Accounting. This covers a wide range of accounting concepts and provides an excellent grounding in the principles of financial and management accounting.

“When I applied to college to study the HNC I thought it would be something I could manage, as I’d previously completed part time education courses,” Emma says. “However, from the get-go it was tough work and involved working full time then going to classes twice a week in the evenings.

“When COVID-19 struck during the second part of my first year we all had to adjust to home learning in the evenings and it became even tougher. However, the support of the tutors was second to none at Forth Valley College. We got through it and I’m very grateful for all of the support given by each of them.

“I’m grateful, too, for the support given by Brockwell – not only to put me through this course but also for giving me the time to study and complete my exams. It was a tough two years so I feel extremely proud that I managed to gain an A grade in my final exam.

“I hope I’ll be able to continue utilising the qualification now within my role at Brockwell Energy.”
