Success Stories

ScotGrad Alumni elected IChemE Associate Member

We're proud to congratulate ScotGrad Alumni Jamie Finlayson, working at impact solutions, on the confirmation of his election as IChemE Associate Member!

Published: 07/02/2017

Jamie Finlayson first joined impact solutions back in July 2016 on a ScotGrad graduate placement, after completing his BEng Hons Chemical Engineering degree at The University of Edinburgh.

Jamie is now entitled to use the post nominal letters ‘AMIChemE’, which puts him on his journey towards Chartered Membership, the gold standard qualification for professionals working within the chemical, biochemical and process engineering industries. This is an excellent example of the type of professional development opportunities and support you can get from ScotGrad employers.

The ScotGrad team was delighted to hear of Jamie's success in all areas of his role:

"Jamie was recently promoted to Process Engineer at impact, in January 2017. Jamie’s new role now involves project managing the new build of impact’s BOSS system. He has improved the engineering works of the rig to enable it to process plastic more efficiently and to produce higher purities of separated PE and PP plastic. Several rigs are now on order for build, proving 2017 to be an exciting and busy year for Jamie."

Well done Jamie (AMIChemE)!
