My journey so far

I received a fantastic welcome when I started working at JM several months ago. It felt great to join a company with such an impressive history. I’m a chemist by background, so joining JM felt like a ‘homecoming’ from a technical perspective.


The sustainable nature of JM’s vision and purpose played a key factor in me joining the company. They have good intentions to make the world a cleaner and healthier place through the quality of their science and technologies. It’s a rewarding position knowing I can help improve our collective performance, whether it’s by making links between the business and outside world, or liaising with people across the international JM portfolio.  

I’ve been very encouraged by the quality of our people, products and science.
Although there’s still a great deal for me to learn, I’m convinced that we have enormous untapped potential and I’m looking forward to playing my part in unlocking that potential.

Most of all, it’s the people who make this company unique.
The warm reception I’ve had from all of my new colleagues exceeded my expectations and there’s a friendly working culture which some wouldn’t necessarily anticipate from a global company.
