Working in manufacturing at Michelin
Since entering Michelin five years ago to do my end-of-course internship, I've had an extremely rich and exciting career in production management. I began as Leader of a team of 30 production workers in the plant in Toul, in the Lorraine region. Just over a year later, I took up a position as Shop Manager in Brittany. I was managing a multidisciplinary team with 80 people in all under my responsibility. I stayed there for two and a half years, then went to Germany as an expat for the position I've now held for six months. I'm responsible for a production unit with 110 workers. It's like having a small factory to manage... at the age of 28!
Each position has taught me something, both professionally and on a personal level. What I like most about production management jobs is the contact with people, the teamwork and the constant striving for operational excellence.
