Jade AbbottJade is part of the international membership team. She looks after four key accounts: Shell, Rolls-Royce, BP and Petrofac, and is responsible for supporting their engineers and graduates through the professional registration process globally.

Jade enjoys the international travel that the job requires. Every 6-8 weeks she meets with her key accounts wherever they are in the world. Meeting the engineers and building long term relationships with their company is a rewarding part of the job, and she is keen to support engineers in their career and encourage continued professional development and learning.

Jade enjoys working with engineers; she likes the way they think and work. She is a keen traveller, having been to 45 countries, so she relishes the opportunity to have an exciting, rewarding role that combines the two.

She has been living in London for the last four years, after time in Hong Kong and Australia, and is enjoying experiencing what London has to offer.
