Gemserv: Investors in (Young) People

The energy and data sectors have undergone significant change over the past decade, presenting challenges that are becoming more complex given the dynamic socio-economic climate that we live in. At Gemserv, we believe in nurturing and cultivating the next generation of talent, so that they are equipped to tackle these challenges and provide sustainable solutions for the future.

Emma French, 20, is currently studying Information Technology Management for Business (BSc) at the University of Hertfordshire and has been interning at Gemserv for the last year.

“I liked the idea of working for Gemserv, because there was a deeper meaning and purpose to the role. I also loved the idea of experiencing commuting and working in London.”

Providing a balanced experience can be crucial to growth and we offer a range of opportunities based on a prospective intern’s areas of interest. Emma works within Project Management, which has involved working across our Smart, Energy and Environment departments.

“This meant that I got to experience areas across the whole company, including client facing roles, administration and data analysis. By doing this, I’ve found out what I enjoy and where my skills lie – in data analysis. This is my first job ever, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. But everyone has been so friendly and approachable. The company is very sociable too and there’s always something going on that you can get involved with.”

We celebrate individuals at Gemserv and the contribution every member of our team makes in creating a diverse range of experience, skills and personalities. Gemserv has a strong learning culture – both formal and informal – and we constantly look for opportunities to further develop people.

“I couldn’t have been more supported whilst at Gemserv. My manager even set up a practice interview for me, so that I could experience what it would be like when I apply for jobs after uni. Feeling like you’ve achieved something new and receiving good feedback for it is a great feeling and has really boosted my confidence.

At uni, it’s ‘study, study, study’. But here, I’ve not only learnt new skills, I’ve grown as a person. As my skill set has grown, my managers have put more trust in me and given me greater responsibility. Interning isn’t just making tea like some people may think!”

Our accreditation to the Investors in People (IIP) Gold standard underlines our commitment to cultivating talent and to providing equal opportunities. The internationally recognised accreditation is the mark of high performance in business and people management, and we are thrilled to have offered Emma this opportunity. We wish her all the best of success for the rest of her studies.
