During her career Newcastle-based Kirsty has built a breadth of experience through the roles, companies and locations she’s worked in and says her current role as CN2030 Project Director at Bradken is a particularly exciting one.
She explains engineering to her kids as “An Engineer is someone who makes a difference.” And that's exactly what she’s doing now. Kirsty says she finds fulfillment by seeing the positive impact her role can have working in a team that helps Bradken sites globally continuously improve processes and effectively produce quality products with a focus on sustainability.
Kirsty’s experience has been that our people’s sense of affinity to Bradken and their passion for their work drives their deep care for optimal outcomes. This same care draws people to work together and help each other out because they see a common goal and their role in Bradken’s success.
Amidst the trying times that COVID-19 brought for everyone, there’s been a lot of positive transformation in Bradken’s work environment. The shift to hybrid and flexible working has meant that “you can bring your whole self to work. We can easily talk about our lives outside of work and our families because the environment doesn’t feel so formal.”
