Learnings from being a working mum within the energy industry, was one of the main reasons behind Sharon Sage’s application to become an advocate.
16 years ago, after having her daughter, Sharon was keen to return to work part-time and started a job three days a week in EDF’s call centre in Exeter.
After securing several different roles within operations, and sales and marketing, she now manages the team that looks after the largest electricity contract in the UK, as EDF’s Public Sector Manager.
And it’s an interesting and supportive story for other women planning to either enter or develop their skills and careers in the energy sector to hear.

What do you love about the industry?
Although sometimes the constant change can be tricky to manage, it keeps me on my toes and there is never a dull moment. I love speaking to customers and helping them on their Net Zero journey and I am very keen to highlight the energy industry as a great career choice for the younger generation
