"Smurfit Kappa is an ambitious, growth driven organisation that is committed to the success of its employees and giving back to the community."
Why did i join Smurfit Kappa?
I started working with Smurfit Kappa at a time when the Group had just completed a merger with their rival Kappa and were about to embark on an IPO. I joined the Group because I felt like this would be a challenging work environment and an opportunity to work with an expanding company.
My career path with the company?
I am currently working as Group Accountant with the finance team in Dublin Head Office. In 2011 I took part in a secondment to the Miami Head Office where I worked as the assistant to the VP of Finance for Latin America. It was a great learning experience. I got exposure to the Latin America side of the business and had the chance to visit our plants in Colombia, Venezuela, Argentina and Mexico.
What does the future hold?
There is a strong culture of education and employee development in Smurfit Kappa. I want to invest in my own development through in-house training and on the job learning in the hope of career progression.
What advice would you give some considering joining Smurfit Kappa?
I would advise anyone who values exposure to a variety of work in an organised team orientated environment to consider a career with Smurfit Kappa. It is an opportunity to work with an industry-leading company that is committed to the success of its employees.
