As a Process Technician at TechnipFMC, Amy is creating subsea technology to enhance the performance of the world’s energy industry.

Like many students, Amy thought about doing a degree after college.

“I considered university but it wasn’t the right path for me. I knew I wanted to do something with variety that allowed me to get my hands dirty. I didn’t want to be stuck behind a desk all day.”

Thanks to an apprenticeship, she’s now working on worldwide subsea solutions for the production and transformation of energy.

“Engineering always interested me as a child so I decided to go for it. After my A-levels I did a 4 year apprenticeship as a maintenance technician before becoming a process technician. At TechnipFMC we design subsea umbilicals systems for every global environment. Umbilicals provide the critical link between remote subsea wells and fixed or floating production systems, and in 2007 we installed the world’s deepest umbilical in the Gulf of Mexico!”

For Amy, the best part of her job is having to think on her feet. “There’s always something different for me to do which requires work-around fixes for the problems we are faced with. This role allows me to be involved with the technical side of things, as well as working directly on the machinery. I work with so many people in virtually every department of the company.”
