Capula Graduate Engineer, Glen Jones is one of three finalists in the ‘Engineering Graduate of the Year Award’ category organised by the National Skills Academy Nuclear (NSAN). The awards recognise and highlight the achievements of exceptional individuals who have chosen careers within the nuclear industry, with a view to encouraging others to enter this sector.
Glen was selected as a finalist in this category in recognition of his outstanding engineering ability as well as his questioning attitude; both are pre-requisites for his role as he is required to keep up to date with the latest advances in technology and ensure the highest standards are maintained during project delivery. He is set to join other inspiring nominees at the prestigious awards ceremony hosted by Bruce Dickinson on 16th March 2017 in Manchester.
Having achieved a first class degree in Computing at Staffordshire University, he is currently working as a Graduate Engineer as part of a team that is developing and testing a network infrastructure on a client’s production system. A major focus of the role is adhering to stringent security and quality protocols required to meet the critical nature of activities within the nuclear industry.
“Capula team members have helped me adapt the theoretical knowledge learned at university into practical real-world activities. As a new graduate, the steep learning curve has provided the best experience I could have asked for and it’s a real bonus and a fantastic surprise to be shortlisted by the NSAN”, said Glen.
Natalie Smalley, Business Manager for Nuclear said: “Glen’s achievement is well deserved. We’ve received some excellent feedback from clients on his work and as he continues to develop his skills and knowledge, I’m certain that he will have a rewarding and outstanding career in the nuclear industry.”
