Our Engineering and Maintenance departments also share our office space for some of the working day.
Jacqui has worked at Nissan for almost 20 years, working across various roles in HR. As someone who did not necessarily want to work for people, rather work with them, Jacqui has enjoyed focusing her talent with people on cross-functional projects and workstreams.
