"What I enjoy most about my job is working in close collaboration with my colleagues. My position focuses on business process management and improvement, and involves all departments at LH Trading across our three international offices. We reap the benefits of diversity and multiculturalism; merging our diverse ideas to develop a more robust operating model day by day."

 

Andrew, British, Trading Manager, Miami

I have worked for LH Trading for almost 6 years and in that time I have been lucky enough to visit over 30 different countries.  Even though the time spent in each one is limited, I always come away with some small feel for the place and the people and that is an absolute privilege. Despite the vast differences between the cultures of the countries I visit, the feeling of entering into a LafargeHolcim office or plant is always one of familiarity and hospitality and it gives me a great sense of pride to be part of that. I love the diversity of the people in trading - we are a small office, but represented by so many nationalities.
