1. What is your position at Adept Solutions?
Business Support Analyst.
2. What led you to this career?
After graduating with my Masters in Oil and Gas Management from Aberdeen University, I wanted to pursue a career within the sector. I joined Adept Solutions at a very exciting time of business growth as a Business Transformation Graduate.
3. Which part of your job do you enjoy the most?
I enjoy my role as Scrum Master within Adept’s development team, where I am responsible for ensuring that the Scrum process is carried out – a project management framework that we follow to manage our complex product development. It is a great way to stay up to date with how the technical team is progressing with projects and product development. This role also allows me to communicate Adept’s advances in their hydrocarbon accounting software to the oil and gas community.
4. Who has influenced you the most when it comes to how you approach your work?
Our senior project manager Karl. He is very organised, driven, and he knows how to motivate and energise the whole team.
5. What is a work-related accomplishment that you are proud of?
Last year, I presented a series of Hydrocarbon Accounting Videos. The intention behind the series was to help young professionals understand key hydrocarbon accounting concepts. Adept Solutions’ many years of experience in hydrocarbon accounting helped us simplify the material and make it easy to understand. It has been great to see many people watching the videos and finding the content so useful. You can watch the series on our YouTube channel.
6. What is your go-to productivity trick?
I write down a prioritised list of tasks for the day and stick to it.
7. What is one thing that you are learning now?
Software as a Service. Adept has recently welcomed a long-time client, IGas Energy, to the list of customers who use Axis as a Service to manage their production data.
8. What is your favourite way to unwind after a busy day?
I enjoy doing yoga with friends. At the moment, it is a social-distanced yoga in the park!
9. What would we most likely find you doing on the weekend?
Recently, I decided to pick up my Russian lessons again. So, you will most likely find me doing some homework or watching Russian cooking shows.
10. Working from home or working from the office?
We are very fortunate at Adept because we can all work from home seamlessly. Over the last 3 months, I have enjoyed my home office, but I do miss working face-to-face as a team. I look forward to going back to our offices soon – the BlueSky team has done a fantastic job of ensuring that workplaces are as safe as possible.
