Michael, South African, Senior Trading Manager, Zurich

"To be given the opportunity to grow the footprint of the LafargeHolcim Group in new and very diverse markets allows me to interact with people of different cultures and backgrounds. It also allows me to meet key business people within these countries giving myself and the Group a better understanding of the global trading flows and regional business prospects we can capitalize on."

Sarah, Canadian, O&HR, Zurich

What I enjoy most about my job is working in close collaboration with my colleagues. When we put our heads together as one team, we reap the benefits of diversity and multiculturalism; merging our diverse ideas to reinvent ourselves and build the extraordinary.

 
 

Andrew, British, former 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.

I've been working in Trading for the last 8 years. I enjoy very much the dynamic and constant changing environment we operate in. Challenges never end. Being part of the great LH family has been a true gift. I like our people, our values and this success-oriented mindset. There is so much knowledge and expertise in what we do, that I am learning every single day. I remain very thankful to the many colleagues and partners all around the world who have been supporting me in the job.
