A day in the life

Speaking to Aimee Tavana, a Project Engineer for the Dorset VIP project

Aimee Tavana is a Project Engineer for the Dorset VIP project.  After starting her career in Event Management, Aimee then qualified in Project Management and started work with National Grid in February 2020.  She has supported a variety of projects in the South region prior to joining the Dorset VIP team.

It has been an interesting few months since joining National Grid, with plenty to learn and people to meet, and a national lockdown to navigate!  I am really enjoying being involved in a project like Dorset VIP, which is so different from anything I’ve done before.

The most exciting part of this project is that you can see the changes the project is making. Every day, there are transformations made across the 8.8km route which nudge us closer to our end goal.  It is amazing to be able to physically see the difference that’s happening around you.

Outside of work, I enjoy yoga, baking, and ice-cream making. Recent favourites have been chocolate brownie, apple crumble, and tahini-and-walnut flavours, but I’m always open to suggestions!
