Lorien Engineering Solutions has affirmed its commitment to nurturing new industry talent with the appointment of nine young graduate engineers, four at its UK office in the East Midlands and a further five at the company’s office in Poland.
Jack Dawson, Roseanne Missenden-Jones, Lou Charpentier-Dusoir and Sarah Matthews have joined the firm at its UK headquarters in Burton on Trent, where newly qualified engineers play a fundamental part in the growth of the business.
Jack Dawson is a Chemical Engineering graduate from the University of Bradford, and has experience in pharmaceutical processing. In his new role at Lorien he will work in the firm’s Utilities department where, like all new engineers, he will have the opportunity to work towards Chartered Engineer status.
Outside of work, Jack is making a name for himself on the rugby field with Bradford Bulls RLFC and more recently with the first team at Derby RUFC.
Lou Charpentier-Dusoir, who hails from Orleans in France, has joined Lorien’s Packaging department. She has a degree in Mechanical Engineering and a Master of Science in the Design of Rotating Machines. Lou said: “The diverse range of projects, and the opportunity to experience the full life cycle of projects are what attracted me to Lorien. Also, the expertise and mentoring from my colleagues is perfect for a young graduate looking for experience.”
Roseanne Missenden-Jones, who graduated from Loughborough University, said: “Lorien offers an accredited IChemE training scheme, with opportunities that cover a diverse range of industry sectors. Combined with exposure to all stages of the project life cycle, this offers an excellent opportunity to develop my technical expertise.”
The final UK-based graduate, Sarah Matthews, has a Masters in Chemical Engineering. She was drawn to the challenges faced by female engineers along with the wealth of opportunities the industry offers, particularly the prospects offered at Lorien. Sarah is currently working in Lorien’s compliance department, looking at potentially explosive atmospheres and machine safety.
At Lorien’s Poland office in Wroclaw, a total of five graduates have joined the business. Anna Wojtowicz, Agata Ciecielag, Martyna Lewandowska, Grzegorz Wis?ocki and Paulina Kierod are all graduates from the Wroclaw University of Technology, and are developing their skills on a broad range of project work.
Lorien director Dave Mallinson said: “Our Graduate Scheme allows recruits to work within experienced and multi-disciplined engineering teams delivering multi-million pound projects, as well as being part of our engineering development programme.
“We feel strongly about doing our bit to ensure the future of engineering, both here in the UK and in Poland, and newly qualified engineers therefore play an important part in the exciting growth of our business.”
