“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn”, said Benjamin Franklin, a renowned scientist and one of the Founding Fathers of the USA. The advantage of learning through practice rather than mere theory is a familiar experience to our new co-worker, Jayaram Anandha, who has joined TSCNET Services’ Operations Team as a Data Quality Manager.
During his studies focussed on power engineering, the undaunted young man of Indian descent has served apprenticeships at the European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity (ENTSO-E) in Brussels, Belgium, at TSC member TenneT in Bayreuth, Germany, and at several other international organisations, such as the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Istanbul, Turkey. A deep insight into the TSO business gained by proactiveness and dedication spared Jayaram a both most common and knotty question almost every university graduate is faced with: what now? In his case, the answer was obvious: “After my studies, I am firmly convinced that I want to continue my way in the international transmission grid business,” said Jayaram. “I considered carefully where I can contribute the best, and I view TSCNET Services as something unique in Europe’s grid”, he explains.
Being familiar with working in an international environment, the Regional Security Coordinator (RSC) TSCNET seems to be a perfect step in Jayaram’s career – and his first two weeks with us in Munich corroborate his view. “The company seems to be a supreme example of Europe with colleagues coming from that many different countries and cultures. Furthermore, I believe working at TSCNET is a ‘once in a lifetime’ opportunity to contribute significantly to the ongoing European energy transition to an environmentally sound and reliable energy supply.” His enthusiasm is just the thing for his new position as a Data Quality Manager, offering new challenges and learning opportunities. Welcome on board and all the best, Jayaram!
