Over the next few weeks we look forward to working with Chris Knapton, a graduate from Aberystwyth, who is on a placement with Caplor Energy. Chris says:
Caplor Energy is a fantastic SME based in rural Herefordshire, with a company aim to increase green credentials and promote sustainable living within the County. Growing up within the farming community in Herefordshire, the environment and efficient use of renewables, were of key importance and, will have an ever expanding importance in light of climate change. On coming for interview at Caplor Farm, it was clear that the effort the team here put into leading the way from the front is highly commendable, with Caplor Farm having a range of renewable technologies serving the needs of the business. This year the firm was awarded with a category win for lowest carbon production of a small business in the West Midlands region.
Having the ability to work for a forward thinking and proactive company such as Caplor Energy will be a terrific opportunity, combining both the 3 years Business and Management degree experience through Aberystwyth University and the personal drive to help preserve the environment and reduce our carbon footprint. Over the next four weeks, I will be developing elements of the marketing plan and contributing to the development of the website.
I am looking for to the challenges ahead and the responsibility given to me and, will strive to add to the company and achieve what I set out to do.
Currently it is the morning of my first day, and everything so far is positive, the office team here is great to work alongside and helping me get ready to start.
