Simone Aebischer

Before I even reached the age of 30, Holcim had given me the opportunity and trust to take over the challenge of being responsible for a production site and 15 employees. Being thrown in at the deep end and learning on the job is a great experience and well supported by Holcim's management development program of Holcim Switzerland of one and a half years duration.

The high level of education and professional knowledge in Holcim coupled with open-minded approaches to problem solving in a reliable and innovative company is very attractive. As the Plant Manager for a grinding station, I manage the production process, our financial budgets and observe quality, environment and safety issues. I like the variety of my tasks and to take over responsibility. It's very satisfying working in an international environment in the heavy industry, where our products are very tangible.

In my experience, Holcim provides atmospheres where people are close to the core production process and collaborate across different areas both internally and externally.

I would like to meet…
