After graduating, Kathy joined the BP Process Safety graduate scheme in Aberdeen. This took her through a number of different roles, from a support role in Aberdeen HQ, to a year on rotation on ETAP platform, to the turnaround team at Kinneil in Grangemouth. She also developed a love of working with schools to promote STEM subjects, organising many graduate-led events in schools or supporting visiting students in office.
Once Kathy finished the graduate scheme, she gained a full-time role in the Process Safety team, supporting all of the BP Midstream assets. With the recent takeover by INEOS, she will continue to keep taking opportunities as they appear and keep building on her links with the local schools.
