Process Scientist / Technical and operations

Harriet Edwards


"I started out with Wessex Water at 18 years old and have since thrived off the company's constant innovation and business development, carving out a career I never thought I would have. GENeco has helped me develop my skills over the years through training and further education which enables me to undertake a varied and challenging role."

Harriet provides process support to the operations of Bristol Sewage Treatment Works and Berry Hill Sludge Treatment Centre. This includes ensuring that the sites are compliant with all relevant consents and standards, as well as identifying opportunities for the optimisation of site processes, chemical and energy consumption and the production of biogas.

Harriet has been working within Wessex Water Enterprises for 10 years. During this time, she has embraced a range of demanding roles, from a waste water compliance technician to a bioresources regional treatment supervisor. This has given Harriet a wide breadth of experience within the waste management sector, deeming her as a fount of knowledge amongst her colleagues. She has recently completed a Higher National Certificate in Waste Management with Northampton University.

Outside of work, she likes to let her hair down and socialise with friends, most recently enjoying her first Glastonbury festival. She also enjoys spending valuable time with her two lively sons and husband - secretly sharing her husband's passion for motors.
