Lisa W., Senior Engineering Manager

During my time at Cargill I have been provided with many exciting opportunities to develop my engineering expertise and experience.”

Liam Mccarthy, EMEA, Plant Engineering Manager

In 2014, I chose Cargill to be the company where I would do a compulsory internship in the Chemical Engineering course. Six years later, I see that it was a very assertive choice. As a trainee, engineer, or continuous improvement Supervisor, I fulfilled in being able to use my strengths, be authentic, and exercise my purpose to impact people's lives. Also, I have access to so many opportunities! Being a woman in a factory environment can be challenging! We are still starting to occupy this space, but, without a doubt, it is gratifying to work in a company that puts people first and promotes an inclusive and diverse environment.”
