I knew Cairn had great people and an impressive reputation.

My team is part of the Planning and Management reporting department. We deliver the accurate planning and forecasting that keeps our decision-makers well informed.

We rely heavily on up-to-date information from various budget holders, so I need to make sure we’re all communicating in the right way at the right time. What I enjoy most is the variety and the opportunities to build my business know-how, both strategic and operational.

I’m developing a good understanding of the oil and gas industry too. I joined Cairn just three months ago from a utilities business, but I’ve already had quite a bit of training on our industry and what drives it. I knew Cairn had great people and an impressive reputation.

But I was surprised to discover how much trust the firm has in its employees – something rare in the current economic climate. It’s certainly more people focused than my previous company, with a long list of employee rewards, both formal and informal.

Being based in Edinburgh is another plus. As well as an easy commute, it offers the friendliness of a small town rather than a big city, an excellent mix of culture and history, and a great range of bars and restaurants for after-work socialising.
