JIG Class: Class II 2015
JIG Country/ Sales Unit: United Kingdom
I am currently based at the Logistic Systems department in the United Kingdom, working both on strategic internal projects as well as customer projects regarding software and automation.
When I joined the Program, I thought that I would follow a structured path for 2 years, and develop my previous skills and expertise to become a manager. Throughout the Program, I found that this is a flexible journey filled with exciting development opportunities, and extensive training Programs in different parts of the world. I had a chance to create my own path and this was a pleasant and unexpected surprise of the JIG Program.
The JIG Program has been a growth experience for me both on a professional as well as personal level. Professionally, I was pushed outside of my comfort zone on various occasions and from this, I was able to acquire a multitude of skills by working within different departments on several projects. On a personal level, I matured, developing a greater self-awareness, and was able to travel and experience different cultures, ‘living out of a suitcase’.
The JIG Project, which we worked on together as a group, was one of the most fulfilling experiences throughout the Program. This was a stimulating assignment, with many unexpected challenges along the way, which ultimately was very successful. This was not only a rewarding experience because of the positive result, but also because it brought us closer together as a JIG class, especially when overcoming these challenges.
When working on different projects and in departments within the Jungheinrich Group, I have seen that there is a great drive to achieve the corporate targets by everyone within the company, and values such as passion and responsibility are at the core of this effort.
I would like to continue to learn and challenge myself, and to have a leadership role that requires me to use a wideset of skills and expertise, which I have acquired throughout the Program.
A stimulating developmental journey that will allow you to challenge yourself, develop an international network and pursue your ambitions.
Make the most of the Program by trying new things and pushing yourself outside of your comfort zone, the best way to learn is by making mistakes.
