Current Role: Manager
I started at NMUK as a Trainee Administration Assistant in 1990 and I have never looked back. Since first joining the company I have been promoted five times and am now at managerial level.
I was first attracted to Nissan due to the many benefits of working for a global company. I knew Nissan were renowned for great quality and productivity, with the opportunities to progress and travel.
After my 2-year apprenticeship I was successful in securing permanent employment as an Administration Assistant. It then wasn’t long before I got promoted to an Administration Officer in 1995. A year later I was promoted to a Controller and then to a Senior only 6 years later; leading to my current position of a Manager. Throughout my career NMUK have allowed me to grow and develop tremendously. If you put the hard work in and have a drive to succeed, then you will – and that’s what NMUK like to see in potential candidates.
There are two things that I value most in my job; the opportunity to work in so many challenging varied tasks and the opportunity to work with people from different backgrounds and cultures, which has broadened my outlook and appreciation of diversity.
If I could sum up Nissan in 3 words it would be Successful, Dynamic and Competitive.
My advice to anyone thinking of applying for an NMUK apprenticeship scheme would be to be open and look into areas that at first you may not think are appealing. Do your research to fully understand the company and the potential career paths. And, don’t be afraid to be ambitious, the level at which you join the company doesn’t limit what you can achieve.
