As part of our growth and expansion Mainer Associate’s would like to introduce our new Graduate Sustainability Consultant, Dominic Wintie.
Dominic studied for a BA in Geography at the University of Manchester before staying on to complete his MSc in the same discipline. He tailored his studies and research projects to focus on cities, development and the key theories surrounding sustainability practice and governance. With an interest in development of urban landscapes and the sustainability of the built environment, Dom completed the BREEAM Associate course to broaden his professional knowledge on sustainability standards for the built environment.
The associate course was a fantastic way to gain a head start when looking for professional opportunities at Mainer Associates. It gave him initial insight and experience into the process of BREEAM assessments, which is a significant part of Mainer Associates’ work. Dominic initially conducted a part-time Internship, getting to know the team and getting to grips with the consultancy Mainer Associates conduct for their clients.
After completing the internship, Dominic was offered a Graduate Sustainability Consultant role. His role includes assisting the senior consultants in conducting environmental and BREEAM assessments, reviewing project information against the standards and criteria, updating online project platforms and helping to produce reports for project teams.
The addition of a graduate is a key to the on-going expansion of Mainer Associate as a sustainability consultancy. We are currently expanding into new areas of consultancy such as environmental-social-governance frameworks. We aim to be a leading multi-disciplinary environmental and sustainability consultancy with several employees trained in multiple areas of expertise. Appointing a new graduate gives us the opportunity to shape and train our workforce to the needs of the business, so important for the future aspirations of Mainer Associates and those of our clients.
