An interns view – Sustainability takes on another dimension at the National Trust

Lucy Hale finishes with us today having spent 6 weeks on an internship as part of her masters course in Sustainability from  University of Bangor. Bunnies (she provided the stunt hands for the previous blog) , coffee and hydros. Its been varied and fun. She has also covered a lot of ground and delivered a lot of work in helping the cause. THANK YOU – she also make a killer Tiffin cake. Here is her view of the work

“What an experience this has been. From sitting in lectures hearing about all this environmental ‘’stuff’’ to being in the thick of it! I have just completed 5 weeks of work experience with Paul and Keith. The experience has been great. I can see that this is an extremely diverse job to work in. There is no time for anyone to get bored as there is always another avenue to explore. It’s not often that you get to look at a stunning mountain on the way to work, or hold baby bunnies in your hand. The team have been amazing, they have a great sense of humour and really care about what they are doing, The level of enthusiasm here is contagious. They put a huge amount of effort into delivering renewables and they have shown the success in what they have done clearly. It has been inspirational to follow in their footsteps. I have actually had the chance to do planning applications, look at carbon footprints, procure biomass and apply for awards so I have really seen some depth in those college notes. .I have certainly learnt a lot about energy. Sustainability takes on another dimension at the trust. It has been great to be able to apply that store of knowledge banked up there somewhere. I have really enjoyed the opportunity to see under the bonnet of The National Trust. I would recommend a placement at the Trust to anyone.”
