Employee Story


Project and Programme Manager


As a business, Expleo intrigued me as I liked what the consultancy offered, in terms of helping clients which faced new and big challenges, in a flash my journey at the company had begun, 4 years ago, in July 2016.

I must say, I feel very lucky to work at Expleo. I have been able to work for a variety of clients across many different projects all over Europe. I have also adopted a number of different roles in different levels of seniority, from board level, working with our CEO, to senior delivery level for a number of clients. Being exposed to so many different industries and roles has given me a wide range of experience, and as a result, has developed my career and fine-tuned my skills to become a stronger consultant. It has allowed me to think outside the box and deliver the best possible advice and solutions to clients.

Primarily working in the Automotive industry, the work we do is helping to make roads safer, not to mention making car journeys more enjoyable for drivers and passengers. We are constantly helping our clients innovate, from connected cars, infotainment and intelligent parking.

To be entrusted with something so important, it inspires me to deliver the best results possible

It is also incredible how transferable my experience is between industries and roles. All the knowledge I have gained in Automotive has supported me in successfully delivering high quality advice and solutions for clients in other industries such as Aeronautics, Banking and Retail.

This transfer of knowledge and the opportunity to work in many industries makes me proud to be part of Expleo, there is such a flexible culture and so much variety in my work, meaning I am constantly engaged. It’s a supportive environment and every time you open your eyes, there’s a very different challenge to be had. That’s what makes Expleo such an interesting company to work for.

As an Expleo employee, I fully support all of our values. They become a natural part of how we work and it’s rewarding to see how our people evolve from client delivery experts to deeply trusted consultants, while embracing these key values. This means that the work we do is only complete when we are certain we have left a reliable legacy of support so that the client can grow and develop. In turn, it constantly feels good to know our work is really making a difference. I have seen my confidence boom, from when I started, as I know there is clear and available support when necessary.

What is your name and your role and how long have you been working at Expleo?

This year I’m celebrating my 12th year at Expleo. I started my career at Expleo as a Quality Auditor contractor, and then was offered a Staff position in the Life Cycle Management team, where I became a Deputy Team Lead, after which there was another promotion opportunity to an Engineering Manager, and later I was able to join our Marine division where I currently work.

Where and how long did you serve in the armed forces?

I served in the Air Force just shy of 25 years. I started my career as an Aero Engines Mechanic. My first posting was at Brize Norton working on VC 10s, Tri Stars & Hercules Aircraft. Then I went on to a technician’s course and became a Junior Technician, and then progressed into a leadership position as a Sergeant. I left the Air Force as a Senior Non-commissioned Officer.

What challenges did you have after leaving the Armed Forces?

My main challenge was worrying about Job Security. My manager was very supportive when I was still a contractor at Expleo and he transferred me over from contractor to permanent staff. I remember the conversation I had with him about the opportunities for secure job security and promotion.

And he said: “At Expleo, opportunities are out there for you, so go and get them”. And he was right, there are plenty of opportunities at Expleo. You just have to seize them. And every time I saw an opportunity at Expleo, I just went for it. 

I transferred a lot of my skills over to Expleo. For instance, the aircraft and engine experience, experience in fault diagnosis, and more in-depth engineering project management and of course my leadership & Management Skills 

How did Expleo help you to transition into your civilian job?

I found it quite an easy transition, as there were a lot of ex-forces colleagues within Expleo when I joined, some of which I knew already. For those that didn’t have a military background they were equally as welcoming.

How do you feel Expleo allows you to use your expertise you gained during your service?

Expleo gave me the freedom to use my transferable skills that I gained in the Air Force. My manager and colleagues had an open mindset for my ideas. I could bring those ideas into the office and illustrate how they could be implemented within a business setting They very much welcomed my ideas about improvements, and there is always an open environment for sharing ideas and previous knowledge. I also completed an Expleo Leadership Management course, which differed to the one I had in the Air Force. Combining the two gave me a much more rounded leadership and management mindset.

How do you connect with other members of the Armed Forces Community at Expleo?

I participate in careers transition workshops supporting recruiters. When Ex-Forces are looking for a new career, I attend the workshops chatting to the Armed Forces community sharing my experience and what I have learned.

What advice would you give to other members of the Armed Forces Community who are planning to join Expleo?

Expleo has many different opportunities, whether it be leadership management, various jobs in engineering, project management etc. Don’t think that you don’t have the skill set to join Expleo. It is within you; you do have those skills and Expleo can bring out these skills in people.
