Time at Kuehne + Nagel: 3 years
Hobbies: Travelling is definitely my favourite hobby. I love to explore and experience different cultures.
Fun Fact: I was born in Hong Kong but moved to Wales at the age of 9
What type of things did you get involved in during your programme?
During my programme I worked in both the Aviation import team and the Perishables retail team. Whilst I was working with the Perishables team I was given the opportunity to manage a warehouse automation project. We were able to come up with a solution that increased productivity and accuracy for one of our major customers. I was given real responsibility and guided the project through phase one, improving our productivity levels by 66% and increasing our accuracy levels significantly.
Where are you now?
I’m now based in our London Heathrow site and my role is pharmaceutical compliance, focusing on the customer side of the business. I’m involved in data analysis, risk assessments, tracking KPIs and undertaking various projects for our major pharmaceutical customers.
What do you enjoy about working for Kuehne + Nagel?
The thing I enjoy most about working for KN is that I’m able to have an input and really make a difference. You don’t always get the in a large company but it’s not the case at Kuehne + Nagel. Everyone’s input it valued and I get to come up with solutions that directly benefit our customers. It’s very rewarding.
What advice would you give to future graduates?
The advice I would give is to get involved and don’t be afraid of failure. As graduates we are in the infancy of our careers and sometimes this means we are afraid to try different things or to ask questions through fear of failure or change. The graduate programme provides such a unique opportunity to see and experience each area of the operation, so jump in and seize the day!
