During her time on the placement with RCE Services UK Ltd she developed an energy reduction service which is set to generate a £300,000 turnover for the company and has secured her first place in the Shell STEP National Final awards meaning she has been named the "UK's Most Enterprising Student".

Robert Cardis, Managing Director of RCE Services UK Ltd, said: "We're delighted that Charlotte has been recognised for the fantastic contribution she made to the business. She began with an open brief and, through showing great initiative, managed to secure an opportunity for a contract worth £250,000 by the end of the placement. She is destined for great things and we wish her all the best in whatever career she pursues."
