What is great about your job?
Tanja Marcus (Principal Process Engineer) said: A job as a chemical engineer is very rewarding as there are so many different aspects to it. I have been able to work in R&D and in the project environment. I have played many roles on the different types of projects I have worked as chief investigator, process engineer, commissioning and project manager. I have worked on scoping tests, pilot and demonstration plants; designed, specified and commissioned various types of plants; conducted many feasibility studies and have been involved in flowsheet selection and process optimisation. I am continuously learning. I also thoroughly enjoy sharing my knowledge with enthusiastic, hard-working young engineers that love to learn.
Nicole Forte (Senior Draughtswoman) said: What I love most about working in the drawing office at ProProcess is that you are exposed to new challenges daily, I am continuously learning. It is very rewarding to start a project with only a slight concept and then at the end see the finished product built in front of you. When I meet new people and they ask what I do, I am proud to say that I work in the drawing office and can show them photos of what we as a company are able to produce.
Sandy Nelson (Supply Chain Analyst) said: I get to interact with a wide range of suppliers, clients and colleagues and work on interesting, innovative projects. I get to be a part of the project from start to end and see all our designs come to life as high quality products.
Nicola Schutte (Process Draughtswoman) said: I still love drawing Piping and Instrumentation Diagrams especially at the beginning of new projects. I am privileged to work with a talented team of intellectuals who are not only professional but enthusiastic in what they do. Their knowledge and passion are influential and motivating, making work rewarding. Every day I learn something new. Kudos to an incredible Team.
Cara-Mari Klopper (Process Engineer) said: I have had the privilege to work in an area of the industry where I can be part of the design of a solution and see the final implementation of our design. What I enjoy most about what I do, is that every day has a different challenge where I learn something new. I have been fortunate enough to work with people that have supported me to gain knowledge to improve myself as an engineer.
Chanel Dalziel (Draughtswoman) said: In engineering the possibilities are endless, and NOTHING is impossible. I have moved between different disciplines and it has been an amazing experience to understand the overall picture. For me engineering is the perfect demonstration of individuality within a team. The outcome of my work is solely dependent on my performance, but the outcome of the project, of the bigger picture of many different interfacing puzzle pieces we create, is wholly dependent on the quality of the team.
Eleanore Forner (Business Development Lead) said: Creativity. Travel / meeting people / new environments. Whether it be for commissioning or a conference, I meet people from all around the world, different cultures, different industries, different projects. Flexibility & variety: I started my career in the Nuclear Industry, then went into Hydrometallurgy for several years and now my focus is on Enhanced Oil Recovery. I love being able to learn new concepts, tricks of the trade and challenge myself with starting something new.
