Solid Bioresources Graduate / Solid Bioresources

Laura Blake


"Working at GENeco as a Bioresources Graduate is giving me invaluable experience of working in the waste industry. I take great pleasure in being able to work in a team of like-minded individuals who also have the environment in their best interests."

The role of Bioresources Graduate requires Laura to have good communication skills in order to interact with customers on daily basis. Other roles include managing food waste streams that come into the site, organising data, developing future outreach projects, and applying her knowledge and skills to identify sustainable solutions to improve the organisation's performance.

Laura has recently graduated from Plymouth University, where she studied Environmental Science and achieved an award from the Chartered Institute of Waste management for the best research project in waste management. The research project explored public perceptions of food waste packaging and increasing recycling rates in Plymouth.

Outside of the work place Laura has a number of different hobbies such as badminton and art. She especially likes spending her spare time in the outdoor environment taking up new challenges.
