"thyssenkrupp is where I have built my career. I was given the support and growth opportunities that enabled me to develop as a person, build my skill set and experience, and also as a manager, becoming a member of the Aerospace Management Team. Then in recent years whilst having a family, the flexibility and support of thyssenkrupp has meant I have been able to continue as a manager working within the Team that is thyssenkrupp Materials UK."
