Penny Laurenson

Head of Planning

I joined Lightsource on the first official day of work, when it was just six people huddled around two laptops, and from that first moment the ethos was clear: no mucking about, roll up your sleeves and get stuck in. Being in a small start-up requires a lot of flexibility, my first 18 months involved working across a range of disciplines. Every project and every year has presented its own challenges, and it feels like I have worked for several different companies in my time at Lightsource – the start-up, the rapidly expanding SME, and now the established industry leader. Throughout this period of growth, one of the main things that has kept me at Lightsource is the people and culture. I am surrounded by intelligent, hard-working professionals, an energetic atmosphere where everyone truly wants to make a difference.

Curtis Mallet

O&M Technician

I joined Lightsource in July 2014 as a Junior Technician and Apprentice. I started off with very little electrical knowledge, learning the basics of both the field and office-based aspects of the role, while attending college one day a week. Throughout my apprenticeship, the team and managers encouraged me to develop my skills, and now I am a Technician, fully qualified, with AP1 status, as well as OP40, G59 and first aid qualifications. There are lots of opportunities to extend your knowledge and gain more qualifications through training, which is one of the best things about working for Lightsource.

Liza Gray

Marketing & Communications Manager

I joined Lightsource as Executive Assistant in 2010, when the company was in its infancy. It’s been a privilege to be part of such phenomenal growth– the opportunity for career development here is huge, as that pioneering entrepreneurial spirit still remains despite our size. This nurturing environment has enabled my career to progress, and I now lead the Marketing & Communications team, providing support to the entire business, from product development through to customer service. Lightsource’s ethos is to encourage and support innovation, which gives all employees great potential for growth. We are continually challenged to push boundaries and even the smallest task can have a big impact.

Matthew Miller

O&M Regional Manager

I joined Lightsource in July 2013 as a Field Service Engineer (FSE), before much of the Operations and Maintenance (O&M) framework was in place. I’m now the East Anglian and Midlands O&M Regional Manager, running a team of 16 FSEs. The journey has been a rollercoaster, but a truly enjoyable one. I’m now in a position to be able to help other FSEs within O&M to develop and progress their career paths, which is possibly the favourite aspect of my job. I enjoy working alongside a great team that I’ve had an active role in developing. When you join Lightsource, you are joining a company that cares passionately about the areas that it in operates in, and at the same time a company that is willing to invest in the people they employ.
