Patrick Hollingworth, Manager, RPS Group (Environmental Consulting)
BSc (majoring in Geography) Hons (Ocean and Coastal Management), UWA
I am currently working for RPS Environmental Consulting, a London-based multinational company which specialises in the fields of energy, planning and the environment. I manage a team of marine scientists and we focus on gaining environmental and planning approvals for marine and coastal infrastructure projects in Western Australia.
After I graduated from UWA I moved to Sydney, where I gained experience working as a consultant in the construction waste industry. Upon returning to Perth I worked in the Environmental Unit of the Department for Planning and Infrastructure, before commencing my employment at RPS, where I have worked for the past 10 years.
My most satisfying moment to date was summiting Mount Everest in 2010. Although not related to my career as an environmental consultant, it has subsequently enabled me to focus on new avenues for my career, focusing on running a business examining leadership and teamwork skills and how they can be best used within the workplace.
