International Women's Day

Diversity and inclusion is integral to a successful workforce here at Nissan. This week we are marking International Women’s Day, to be held on 8th March, by celebrating just some of the amazing females we have employed with us here.

 

Lily Turner, a Maintenance Technician Apprentice at Nissan Sunderland, took some time to talk to us about her role, inspirations and achievements.

Lily’s role at Nissan…

I am currently a Year 4 Maintenance Technician Apprentice in Line 2 Trim and Chassis. My main role involves ensuring the production line is running but I also work on completing both dynamic and static planned preventative maintenance checks.

Lily’s proudest achievement…

My proudest achievement is winning the Regional Apprentice of the Year award. This meant a lot to me as it is great recognition for the work I complete and is a great way to help remove the stigma behind women in STEM careers.

 
 

Alice’s role at Nissan…

Here at Nissan I am the Section Manager of the Inbound Operational Logistics Team. My team are responsible for the collection of parts from suppliers across Europe and the UK and the delivery into the plant. We also have responsibility of managing the delivery of KD containers from local ports. As well as this, my team manage any emergency transport requests that are needed to avert risks to production.

Alice’s proudest achievement…

When it comes to my proudest achievements there are two things stand out to me. Firstly being able to build a happy life with my wife and the two cutest cats in the world (not biased, it’s a fact!) Secondly, having a group of friends that are my chosen family. I’ve had the same friendship group for almost 20 years and life wouldn’t be the same without them.

Abigail’s role at Nissan…

I joined Nissan in January 2022 as an Employee Relations Controller after securing a place on the coveted scheme. I currently look after Paint Shop, Trim & Chassis 2 and Finance (approx. 1100 employees in total!) My job role includes being the first point of contact for employees and managing all aspects of our Terms and Conditions of Employment. Employee Relations is fast-paced and challenging however no two days are the same, which certainly keeps me on my toes!

Best piece of advice Abigail has been given…

“If you’re not challenged by it, you’re not learning from it.” This was from a former teacher of mine and it gives me comfort knowing that I don’t have to understand or be able to do everything straight away, just simply going through it will help me to develop and grow.

Finlay’s role at Nissan…

I work in the EC Paint Shop as the Supervisor of Line 1 Contrast Masking, this is the 2-tone process where we mask the body ready for paint application before it goes through a de-mask, inspect and repair process. I recently completed the 2-year scheme as a Production Graduate Supervisor, where I spent time with TPQC and shadowed within each of the paint shop zones. The graduate scheme is a huge part of my career so far at Nissan, so I continue to support with the onboarding process.
Finally, I am an ambassador for the Nissan Way – I took part in the first CFT session and from there helped to roll out the Nissan Way across the entire Paint Shop.


Finlay’s inspiration…

The biggest inspiration for me to pursue a career within the automotive manufacturing industry is my dad, he worked in the industry for over 34 years and has always encouraged both my brother and myself to pursue a similar careers.

Chloe’s role at Nissan…

I work in Inbound Logistics within the SCM department, I’m responsible for consolidating, analysing and reporting the inbound logistics costs. Outside of my core role I’m part of the plant DE&I pillar, and I have taken over the placement recruitment for SCM. This year I have also started mentoring, as I am passionate about supporting and guiding new and developing talent within the business.

 

Chloe’s proudest achievement…

Receiving my degree is one of my proudest achievements, I graduated with a first-class honours degree in Mathematics and cried when I opened my results letter. My placement year at Nissan was one of the main contributing factors to this result as I went back into my final year at university treating it with the same level of drive and determination that I had developed during my placement.
