Why did you join the Global Graduate Programme and how the selection process looked like?
Because it seemed like an amazing opportunity for young professionals to gain experience in different fields in a multinational environment, and this was something that I was looking for as well. The selection process was definitely challenging, especially the Assessment Center, but I really enjoyed it. During the onboarding period I received a lot of support from my coach, my line manager and our HR Business Partner.
During the program, I had the chance to gain insight about the operation of a factory from multiple point of views. I had the opportunity to work on several projects in both departments, including ISO certification, machine installations and new product introductions. I also gained people management experience during my Global Graduate journey, which is such a beneficial experience for a young professional.
What is your difference that you are bringing to the organization?
Innovative ideas which mean looking for BAU processes/productions and don’t accept how they are, rather looking for how they should aim to eliminate loss. One remarkable moment I recall from my Global Graduate time was when we worked out an innovation with a Technical operator on a cigarette making machine. This innovation also brought significant saving for the company.
