Graduate Shortlisted For Major Oil Industry Award

22 October 2014

Costain’s Hayleigh Pearson, a Graduate Process Engineer based in Aberdeen, has been shortlisted for a major award at this year’s Oil & Gas UK Awards.

Sponsored by Shell UK Limited, the awards celebrate the outstanding contribution and hard work of organisations and individuals working in the offshore oil and gas industry throughout the year.

This year there are five categories including three for individual performances (Graduate, Apprentice and Mentor of the Year) and two company awards (Business Innovation and Investment in People).

Hayleigh has been shortlisted in the Graduate of the Year category, along with two other promising engineers. Each category is judged by a panel of individuals made up of industry leaders, previous winners and senior representatives of the sponsoring firms. The prizes will be awarded at the annual awards ceremony at Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre on Thursday 6 November in front of 600 guests.

Hayleigh joined Costain in 2012 and has been a member of the Upstream Process team for over two years, having cut short her doctoral studies in emerging energy storage technologies at the University of Aberdeen to pursue a career in the oil and gas industry.

Hayleigh was nominated by Ewan Brodie, the Costain Upstream Process Manager, who commended Hayleigh for her positive attitude and her abilities as a Process Engineer.

“While I can see the dedication and attention to detail that allowed her to excel in the world of academia, her excellent people skills and understanding of the demands of the industry have allowed her to make the transition with apparent ease,” said Ewan.

Ewan added: “Hayleigh approaches her work with enormous enthusiasm and is always keen to develop and learn new skills, which promotes a great team spirit, not only within the company but in presenting our work to our customers.”
