Hi, I’m Emma, an operations graduate based at the Golden Circle factory in Brisbane, Australia. I am originally from New Zealand where I completed my degree in Food Technology. I was extremely excited when I heard I was jumping the ditch to Australia to work for Kraft Heinz.
One of my responsibilities is to facilitate onsite utilities saving projects for the four areas of water, electricity, fuel and solid waste. This allows me to further my understanding of the process and work within a cross-functional team where successful implementation of the projects will result in significant savings for the site.
I am also the owner of the maintenance ZBB package for ANJ (Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Japan and Korea). This involves me talking to all sites across ANJ to get information on their spending and comments around any variances to the budget. This role not only develops my financial understanding of the business but also my management, organisational and communication skills.
Being immersed in the factory environment has been invaluable, the people are awesome and their job ownership is reflected in the quality products being produced daily. I am looking forward to the challenges ahead and furthering my career with Kraft Heinz.
