Andrea - Graduate Application Engineer
Ciao! My name is Andrea and you have to know that I am really brand new in Morgan Advanced Materials: I have just started my Graduate Development Programme since September 2017. Nevertheless, from the very first days I have been feeling as an integral part of the company: everyone is very supportive and I have been assigned quickly to responsibilities in order to give my concrete contribution.
When I applied for the GDP I was looking for a new challenging adventure within a multicultural environment, in which to grow up professionally and personally, being exposed to different roles and business areas, acquiring new competences and developing a leadership attitude. I am glad of having found all of the above from the beginning of my journey in Morgan!
Indeed I spent my first month travelling around many different UK places, to get an insight on Morgan businesses, products and manufacturing processes from the inside of some of the main English sites. Additionally, I attended a number of training events with my GDP peers from all over the world, quickly building a network of people on which I can count.
After this period, I have been assigned to the Luxembourg site as an Application Engineer for my first year in the GDP. I will help customers in identifying the best solution among the Morgan products or to support them in developing new ones.
Moreover I am also leading an important project in cooperation with my Korean colleagues: I could not ask for a better start! In fact I would like to become a Project Manager at the end of this path. However, there is always time to change ideas, as GDP is structured so to be flexible and to be shaped day after day by each’s aspirations.
