Guilherme Expleo

A typical day at work

4 questions to sum up

Why did you choose to join Expleo as a Principal Business Consultant?

Expleo's organisation and the opportunities presented to me during the interview process influenced my decision to work there. Expleo Academy provides state-of-the-art training, and the company has a very well-defined structure allowing you to plan your career progression.

What interests/ excites you about the industry you are working in?

In my current role, I am not constrained to working in a single industry. The use of embedded systems is cross-industry, so you might work for organisations involved in Life Sciences as well as the Automotive and Aerospace industries, among others. Each industry has its specific regulations and standards that must be complied with. It can be challenging learning how to use the knowledge and tools from one industry to another, but when your work can make a difference, it is very rewarding to overcome these challenges.

How would you describe the culture at Expleo?

The culture at Expleo is based on collaboration and knowledge sharing, where colleagues regardless of the location are keen to help on projects that you are involved in. During my first few months at Expleo, I was working on an internal R&D project that allowed me to contact peers from Ireland and abroad that faced the same problems that I was trying to solve. The contribution given by those peers was crucial for the development of my project and could not have been completed without the reach and interaction I was able to gain from working in an international organisation.

How is Expleo helping you grow your career?

Expleo provides me with opportunities and tools to grow my career, by giving technical and soft skills training through the Expleo Academy. In Expleo, I have a clearly defined and structured career path with measurable goals and objectives outlining what actions are required to continue growing within the company. The transparency is really helping me excel in my role and I feel confident for the road ahead.

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.
