Life as a Senior Test Engineer at ENSEK
Jul 14, 2021
We spoke to Haydn Greenfield, Senior Test Engineer about his role and how he has progressed since joining ENSEK.
What attracted you to join ENSEK originally?
When I was looking for a new role, I was looking for somewhere which would provide a new challenge and would allow me to progress in my career. ENSEK ticked all the boxes for me, and has not disappointed.
What has your ENSEK journey been like so far?
I started with ENSEK as a Test Analyst in 2019. In that time, I have learnt a great deal and have grown massively. In April 2021, I was promoted to Senior Test Analyst, which would not have happened without the support given from ENSEK. The introduction of a career progression framework has allowed me to concentrate on the areas which I needed to work on to reach this milestone.
What do you enjoy most about your role?
My role can be quite intense at times and I am always busy, which I enjoy. The ability to provide our clients with a platform that not only works, but works well is very rewarding.
I would also like to add that working for ENSEK is a pleasure, the support you are given from day one is amazing. There is a lot to learn if you do not come from the energy market, but everyone will always make time to help you with questions.
Do you have any future goals in terms of career progression at ENSEK?
With the addition of a career progression framework, my future goal is to work up the framework, so the next goal is Lead Test Engineer.
How have you been supported in reaching your goals?
With the implementation of the career progression framework, the progression paths are very clear. Within the framework there are certain paths you are able to take, regardless of your current role. The framework also provides you with areas in which you may need to improve. There are also regular one to ones with my line manager, where they see how I am getting on with my objectives and provide any assistance - be it from themselves or from other colleagues. ENSEK will also provide opportunities for training, either internally or externally through various courses to enable you to reach your goals.
