Lorenzo – ICT Graduate

When people think of IT they think of providing support in a back office, but my role at Kerry has allowed me to visit and implement solutions around the world.  I visited over seven countries in my first year including Brazil, Costa Rica and the United States.

I was involved in the development of a new processing software for our factories across South America, and I was given the responsibility to travel to the individual factories to manage the implementation process.  IT is a global function so there are many opportunities for travel.”
