‘I got many opportunities to develop!

I started working as an operator at OmniChem when I was 18 years.  I had just left school and wanted to go and work for a living. I learned at OmniChem a lot and I got many opportunities to develop and grow.

I started as an operator with a temporary contract. I got the opportunity to work in different production units. In that way I gradually got to know the products and processes of OmniChem very well. On top of that, I also got a good overview on the complete operations of the company: what happens exactly at R&D? How is the warehouse organised? What does the QC-department do? Etc.

After 3 years I could develop further into the role of Supervisor NP1 and lead in that role a team of 4 operators. This was a different, very interesting and instructive experience.  After 9 years, I recently was promoted to Production Assistant and I am now the right arm of the Production Engineer.  Still now I learn a lot each day. I continue to learn and started – after working hours – with evening studies in chemistry. In that way I can do my job even better and learn more in everyday practice!
