GET TO KNOW SARÉT
What do you find most meaningful about your role?
In 2022, I had the opportunity to become a Project Manager – a role that I was aspiring for since I entered the company two years ago. I believe that having worked my way through support functions enabled me to hit the ground running.

Currently, I manage a number of projects within the rigging and construction spectrum, including installation of bilge spools and cable protection. I find it meaningful that what I do contribute to the success of the project, be it administrative and logistical duties in the past or project management now.
“What I like about the industry, company and my role, is that there are always new things to learn and improve on.”
What do you like about the culture in Axess?
I like that I am trusted to do my job to the best of my ability, achieve targets and make valuable contributions to my team, entity and Group as a whole. I also like the culture of being considerate, not just towards our colleagues but also the environment – we aim to reduce harm caused to the planet while achieving business goals.

What do you hope to achieve in the company?
Continuous improvement is a value that I live by. What I like about the industry, company and my role, is that there are always new things to learn and improve on.

As I am currently in the role that I was aspiring for, my goal now is to become a champion of Angolan projects as we expand our portfolio.
