My experience of working at European Geophysical so far
Nick Clark joined the business last year as a logging engineer, we caught up with Nick to see how he is getting on.
What attracted you to the role at EGS?
“I saw some of the work they produced on a large ground investigation project I was previously involved with and was very impressed with the results, I also saw that EGS weren’t just involved with ground investigation projects but other industries as well which interested me further and made me want to know more about some of the work they produce. The diversity of the work EGS are involved in also caught my eye.”
Can you tell us a little about your role at EGS?
“My role involves conducting the downhole borehole geophysical operations in the field, whether it be for a ground investigation project, or for mineral exploration, or for the water industry. During my time out of the field I also take part in report writing as well. So the role requires a flexible mindset and the ability to adapt quickly to different environments as well as the ability to think and work independently, it means there is many opportunities to travel all over the country and even overseas where you get to see different places that you may not get the chance to otherwise.”
What inspired you to follow a career in borehole geophysics?
“I wanted the opportunity to learn something new and challenge myself as well as expand my career in geology, having previously worked in an engineering geology-based role I saw how important borehole geophysics was, and it made me want to pursue a career in this direction.”
What do you most enjoy about your role at EGS?
“I enjoy having the opportunity of going to various different places across the country and Europe, I like seeing new places and travelling is one of my favourite things to do, so having the ability to see new places as part of my job is very appealing to me.”
What key skills do you bring to your role?
“I feel I have good background experience in working in the field, specifically with ground investigation projects. I have the ability to adapt to dynamic environments and can work well on my own and as part of a team.”
Which projects have you enjoyed working on the most?
“I enjoyed getting the opportunity to work offshore Poland where I was able to see how a drilling vessel functioned and the challenges that came with it when geophysical logging.”
What advice would you give to someone considering a career with EGS?
“I would say don’t be afraid to take on new challenges that may present themselves to you, as this is one of the best ways to grow your career and better your skills for the future.”
What are your hobbies and interests outside of work?
“Mostly, I like to travel all over the world when I get the ability to, I enjoy seeing new places and learning about different cultures.”
