Our staff say
I have worked for SEM for over ten years. Like Martin I have seen lots of changes since I have worked for the company, but one thing which doesn’t change is the focus on technical excellence and making improvements.
Over the last year, I have been enrolled onto a NVQ Business Improvement Techniques course, which is run by an external coach and has really enhanced my understanding of lean methodology, plus will give me a recognised qualification to take away at the end of the year of training.
SEM was recommended to me as a great place to work by one of my friends, so when I saw the vacancy pop up on LinkedIn I applied straight away. Personally I think that a hands on role is a great starting position for a graduate, as you gain an understanding of the product and processes involved in creating it.
The Team Leader role, which I started in August 2016, is a perfect fit for me as it has given me the opportunity to be involved with technical, production engineering, data analysis elements and help out on the cell. A year on, I can say I’m fully enjoying the challenges involved with working at SEM, working with other women in engineering and most definitely working with my Spindle team. In the future it would be great to see more women join SEM in engineering!
