Student Profile(s)

Jaz Rabadia MBE

Why did you choose to study at City University London?
For me, location and reputation were key. City University London offers both of those things and has a great employability rate. I was able to find a job in industry straight after my degree and fantastic support from the University staff in presenting me with opportunities.

What did you enjoy most about your course?
The course provided me with the toolkit needed to make it in industry. I really enjoyed the high calibre speakers and in depth debates we had during seminars. Energy presents social, political and economic challenges on a global scale and it was brilliant to deep dive into these.

What has been your career highlight after graduating?
I've had many highlights working in the energy sector. I first joined the Energy Institute after a lecturer recommended it on my course. Since then I have worked towards chartered status and was recently awarded Young Energy Professional of the Year. I now serve on the board of trustees for the Institute.

I am indebted to the support City University London has provided me and as a small token of appreciation, I often come back to lecture on energy courses and take part in career events.

Paul Boreham

Paul's current role involves managing the energy, water and carbon for one of the largest property owners and developers in the UK. Paul manages a team of nine that includes three energy managers for London and Retail and a bureau of five billing analysts. The team have an annual expenditure of £23 million, managing all aspects of Energy and Carbon for Land Securities; from procurement to contracts and projects.

The energy market is complex but as the costs have increased, the need for experienced professional energy managers has increased. Transparency of corporate reporting has become very important as large businesses move to demonstrate sustainability through reducing carbon emissions.

In Paul's previous role, he was the Group Energy and Carbon Manager for Morrisons Supermarkets, which was very different to managing energy in a property business.

"I have found that obtaining the MSc in Energy and Environmental Technology and Economics at City University London has helped further my career. The teaching staff are very well known and respected in the energy and engineering industry. A degree from City can help to open doors for new energy & carbon managers."

Claire Manning

Industry recognised experts helped Claire to grow her career and network.

A year after graduating from the MSc Energy and Environmental Technology and Economics at City, Claire used the knowledge she developed whilst writing her dissertation to adapt her career from a UK energy perspective to a European procurement in Energy career.

Following completion and due to the availability to strong networking systems on the course, Claire was headhunted into the UK government as the lead for the UK Government procurement role. After many years in the public sector, Claire went onto join GlaxoSmithKline as the Global Energy Director.

"Having an MSc from City has spring-boarded my career, my network and my personal learning on an exciting and quickly evolving subject! I completed the MSc course a few years ago and found the content and style perfect to fit into my working life and also reach my career goals. The flexible courses and face to face lessons were excellent for not just concentrated learning but also networking. Having external industry recognised teachers and content was critical as the subject matter evolves faster than research alone can provide."
