A day in the life

Want to know more about working at Inspired?

I’m responsible for pre-construction design within Technical Services.

At the moment most of our work is on solar PV. My normal day would be a mixture of reviewing PVSOLs (3D models of potential solar systems), pricing, and occasionally modelling other technologies like Combined Heat and Power (CHP).   

The team is fantastic, with a mixture of different expertise and backgrounds. There’s always someone willing to lend a hand or talk through a difficult design problem. We also have a varied and interesting workload, especially when we’re deploying relatively new technologies. And of course, it’s great to know that the work has a positive environmental impact.  

I wanted to have a career that would have meaning and align with my values. I studied renewables originally, although I’ve also worked in related areas like Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting (SECR), as well as Energy Saving Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) and energy efficiency surveys. 

The best not career-related advice I’ve ever received was to get pet insurance when we got a puppy. We have a Pomeranian called Gucci and pay about £300 a year for her insurance. As it turned out in the very first year, she needs a surgery that’ll cost thousands of pounds. Sound advice!  

The best career-related advice on the other hand: To learn to know when something is ‘good enough’ instead of perfect. Sometimes trying to perfect something unnecessarily is just wasting time that could be better spent elsewhere.   

I’m from New Zealand originally and have lived in Australia and London before moving to Blackpool. I must admit, any time someone says “alright?” to me as a greeting I still have a moment where I think whether they are worried something is wrong,

I was originally hired by STC in Bromley, which then became part of Inspired. In total, I’ve been with Inspired for just over six years.

Outside of work, my puppy is currently a central figure in all my leisure activities. I’m trying to train her with mixed success. I thought she was slow to catch on the commands at first but turns out she knows full well what I’m asking from her and makes her own choices whether to agree. Which is usually determined by whether I’m holding a piece of chicken!
