After completing an Industrial Automation Technician course, I had my first contact with the oil and gas industry. When I was working on the shipyard, I hoped to join Axess due to its good reputation among other companies in the industry, for being a stable company that promotes professional growth and gender equality. Through the recommendation of a friend, I had the opportunity to join the company in 2020 and have since participated in many projects.
As a female in this role, I am but one example of how women have the ability to do whatever they want, regardless of their gender, and I am proud of it. I like that Axess offers an environment that empowers women and recognises them for their abilities. If I were given the chance to choose again, I would still choose to be here.
What do you find most meaningful about your role?
As a work leader, I maintain clear and proper communication with both my team and the client regarding projects, such as NR-10 Brazilian Compliance and NR-13 Instruments Calibration. I also make sure that the projects are in compliance with all the necessary procedures.
This is meaningful to me as I am working in the area that I wanted, and I am constantly gaining knowledge and also have the opportunity to lead projects.
I want to build a successful career here. By challenging myself to gain more knowledge in different areas and diversifying my skill set, I believe that I would be recognised for my abilities and have the opportunity to move up the corporate ladder.
