Melanie has over 17 years of experience in the HR profession, mainly gained within the energy industry. Her HR career started with BG Group (now part of Shell) in 2005 and, during her time there, she completed her MSc in Human Resource Management and Development (CIPD Level 7) and worked in several roles including generalist HR, specialist (global mobility) and regional positions. She also worked with International Power (now ENGIE) and Buried Hill Energy since then, before moving away from London and settling in the South-West of England, where she initially took some time out of the energy industry and worked with a very diverse, family-owned group of companies, including construction, manufacturing, property and care home management.
Melanie was keen to return to the energy industry and therefore joined Geoquip Marine in April 2022 as Head of Human Resources. She was also recently awarded Fellow Membership of the Institute of Leadership and Management.
