‘Just over two and a half years ago I moved to Shannon from Krakow in Poland. Krakow is a huge and vibrant city but there is very little diversity there. I immediately experienced such a difference when I arrived in Ireland.
What I absolutely love, since starting with Jaguar Land Rover, is working with colleagues from different cultures and backgrounds – and the benefits and respect that brings to the working environment.
I have met colleagues and become friends with people from across the globe – from Turkey, Hungary, India, Vietnam and many more countries. I feel really settled here.
My role as Scrum Master means that I talk a lot to colleagues to ensure our work is represented and we are all on track with a project. The culture in the Shannon office is very agile and openminded. You can propose new ideas and ways of working and get a lot of support to implement them.
There is a lot of collaboration and co-operation within the business. At the moment I am working closely with a very experienced Agile Coach and, since she has taken me under her wing, I am learning so much. I am pretty new to the Scrum Master role and am growing personally at a really fast pace – that’s really down to the experience of the colleagues around me.’
