Every day is different at Northern Gas and Power | NGP Success Stories

Last week, we spoke to Amanda, one of our Business Account Managers at Northern Gas and Power.

Amanda moved from the banking industry into a career in energy with NGP, where she’s been for over four years.

Amanda talks us through her journey at the company and explains how a career in the energy sector has provided greater challenge and excitement than she previously had.

In this week’s instalment of NGP Success Stories, we asked Amanda about her experiences here at NGP. She also shared insight into the culture of the company.

Why did you pick a career in energy?

There’s always something different happening in the energy industry. It’s fast-paced and always changing. Every day is different. Energy is a volatile industry. We’re also working on a live commodities market. You’ve got to keep on top of the news, you’ve got to keep abreast of global events. That keeps you on your toes and keeps you quite excited.

Energy is hugely important for businesses. It’s probably the second or third largest overhead for businesses, so keeping abreast of the market is imperative.

What does your role entail for businesses?

As a Business Account Manager, one of my main functions is to establish relationships with customers initially. I also work on profiling the customer’s operations, understanding their current energy strategy and then compare that against our propositions at NGP. Then, once they’re happy for us to proceed, we’d look to tender to suppliers and acquire competitive offers for them.

How have you progressed or grown at NGP?

There are also so many opportunities at NGP. I’ve had opportunities myself to move around and complete other responsibilities within the businesses which has been a great experience. Though I’m most comfortable in my current role, I’ve seen colleagues I work with move into higher positions and succeed. There’s also a culture of progression here which is nice to see.

What do you enjoy about your role?

My role’s really exciting actually. It’s quite a nice journey that we take customers on. We learn about their operations, their business, their processes, and their current strategy. Then we apply our services and propositions to their profile to see where we can help them make energy or cost savings. I find it quite rewarding to see the results at the end, knowing that we’ve helped a company make its savings.

What’s the culture like on the floors?

I’ve also worked in this kind of environment before, but I find it even better at NGP. It’s quite different, in that it’s really lively, vibrant and exciting. The atmosphere is friendly and welcoming, which really helped me settle in when I first started. Every day is always different. It’s fast-paced and quite an engaging environment. I love it. There’s never a dull moment.

What would you say to someone looking to start at NGP?

You need to have passion. Determination too. And also the will to succeed. You need to have a certain joie de vivre. You’ve also got to be driven. I’ve seen for myself the successes available to people who are driven to get the best for their clients, and the best for themselves.
