Tell us about your experience joining BT
I started my career in the railway sector in Spain and when I was approached by Bombardier regarding international opportunities and offered a job in Derby I decided to move to the UK. After I joined BT I went through an international relocation process. From the very beginning I felt really integrated and part of the team. There is a strong international spirit within BT.
While at Bombardier I’ve been fortunate to see first-hand how the organisation is improving its international cooperation across sites and worldwide regions as part of its BT Transformation.
It’s also great to actually see the product progress from design and build through to delivery. We are also unique in that we have all the required on site, from facilities manufacturing, engineering, services and even a test track to perform traction and brake testing.
Derby is one of the central hubs for engineering expertise in and a great place to develop your skills in systems, either through the engineering expert or the management career path. There are new projects that bring new technical challenges where you can make a difference to the daily commute of thousands of passengers.
My career has developed quickly and I am already responsible for managing complex projects as well as bids. I feel recognised and valued by the management team and I know that there are still many opportunities available to me.
