My Pöyry Story

'From the beginning, I've had the opportunity to take part in interesting projects'

Jimmy, Consultant, Finland

In our team, it is possible to contribute to what kinds of projects to take part in.

"I graduated from Aalto University where I studied Engineering Physics and Mathematics. Currently, I work as a consultant in the Energy team of Pöyry Management Consulting Oy where I started in autumn 2014. I applied to Pöyry because I wanted to learn and gain experience in the energy industry from the management consulting point of view.

What I consider to be important about working at Pöyry is that right from the beginning, I've had the opportunity to take part in interesting projects, I've been given plenty of responsibility and I've been able to maintain direct contact with our clients. A good example is one of the first projects I took part in at Pöyry. It was a fairly small project related to a market analysis and I was mostly in charge of it on my own. When the project neared its end, I also maintained contact with the client and presented the project results to a team of the client's employees. Such an experience at the beginning of my career here boosted my abilities and confidence for future projects.

In our team, it is possible to contribute to what kinds of projects to take part in. This has allowed me to take part in projects related to different areas, also with our customers and colleagues from other countries. These projects have ranged from small and accurately defined analyses of a few weeks to larger projects of several months. Currently, I am working on a project for ten major energy companies and organisations from five different countries. In this way, I can gain experience from different fields, and it is also easier to decide on how to strengthen my competence and where to specialise."
