A YOUNG entrepreneur is launching his own start-up business to help organisations find solutions to industry challenges and develop engineering capability.

Clyne Albertelli, 25, one of the youngest to achieve his position among thousands of workers at Sellafield Ltd, is setting up Co-Lab Engineering.

Based in West Cumbria, Co-Lab Engineering will bring large organisations and SMEs from multiple sectors together to solve engineering challenges rapidly through a collaborative approach.

As well as developing solutions to help make industry safer, more efficient and more cost-effective, those taking part in Co-Lab Engineering initiatives will gain vital skills and knowledge to help them and their businesses develop.

Clyne, who lives in Lowca, said: “The key is collaboration. In my experience of delivering solutions within a regulated industry, bringing people together and encouraging diversity of thinking is the most effective way of generating ideas and providing solutions.

“My experience is in Engineering programme management. I pride myself on my ability to create an environment that inspires teamwork and rapid delivery.”

Clyne started his career as an electrical and instrumentation apprentice for Babcock, moved to Cavendish Nuclear as an instrument mechanic, and joined Sellafield Ltd as a System Engineer. He then joined the Engineering Portfolio management team and more recently worked as Solutions manager.

Clyne said: “Like any young person, stepping away from a job you enjoy and setting up your own business is a risk, but I passionately believe in what industry can achieve through working together; that’s why I’m willing to take that step.

“My career has allowed me to develop skills such as programme and project management, a structured approach to problem-solving, and commercial and financial understanding of managing budgets and looking after contracts. I’ve also developed the skills required to create high-performing teams and brought together experts from large organisations, government entities, and SMEs to solve problems.

“What has been encouraging to me is the level of support and advice I have received from various organisations and individuals who want to see young entrepreneurs like me succeed. It’s refreshing. I can’t thank them enough. I am looking forward to making my dream of running my business a reality and making a positive difference.”
