What attracted you to Cellulant?
First off, I was looking for a different employment arrangement from where I was working before because I needed to start a family. As I continued to work at Cellulant, the environment was one of the reasons I continued to work at Cellulant.
The staff cared whether I rested, and how my family was doing and this was nothing like I had experienced before. This was definitely the type of environment I wanted to work in.
What do you do at Cellulant?
I am a transport officer and responsible for safely transporting either cargo or staff and/or visitors from one location to another. While doing this I follow traffic laws always ensuring the safety of my passengers comes first.
In my line of work, I deal with all staff as well as c-suite staff which is quite an opportunity to network with teams from across the business from Nigeria to Kenya and everywhere in between.
