Tell us about your role at Wood
I joined Wood in a contract manager role covering Central & North Africa region (Gabon, Algeria and Tunisia). After less than two years I was promoted to a dual role which is the North Africa business service manager & Tunisia branch manager. Hard work pro-activity and self-confidence are my ingredients for success.
When you reflect on your career at Wood what makes you most proud?
The combination of unique skills; multi-cultural background, capacity to speak five languages, three of them perfectly and being detail oriented. I feel my major achievements have come through my involvement in negotiations with various customers and local authorities. I have been able to create innovative solutions and options to the so far faced challenges and problems; including old ones.
What would you tell your friends about working at Wood?
Diversity of opportunities and the strong safety culture within the organisation. I feel I am in good hands all of the time.
The Wood leaders have an ambition to continue to make Wood a more diverse and attractive place to work in. There is a demonstrated ability to listen to us. I like the focus on the Wood values as care, commitment and courage are the tools I need as a Tunisian and in particular a woman in a male dominated arena to go further and further. I highly believe in my capacity to aspire and inspire.
