Plenty of room for added value in your own way

"What's my motto? You control your own career. OCI Nitrogen is open to development. I started here as Marketing Coordinator. After that, I progressed to Assistant Product Manager. Later, I added Sales to my tasks and I am now Global Sales Manager. Within Fertilizers, I am responsible for several larger accounts worldwide and can tap into new and interesting markets. Of course, you don't land a job just like that. It is important to know where you want to go and to indicate this to the right people. There are a lot of opportunities here. And I like taking advantage of them. You must also be flexible. Sometimes it's two steps forward then one step back, and maybe even one step aside. OCI Nitrogen is clearly a company in motion, which is an ideal starting point for employees to advance. I gain energy by taking an entrepreneurial approach from an overarching point of view. During my studies at Eindhoven University of Technology, I often found it difficult to have a broad orientation. I felt like I had to specialize to be distinctive. Now, however, this has proven to be my strength: my broad interest allows me to see the big picture. I can connect business, people and companies and provide added value in my own way."
