I was born and raised in Zaragoza, a medium-sized city in northern Spain. From a very young age, I developed a deep affinity towards both science and the arts. To satisfy that curiosity, I studied Industrial Engineering while continuing to develop my design, sculpture and painting skills. Before my graduation, I worked as a consultant in an engineering company that designed and built distribution centers for pharmaceutical companies and devised advanced logistic hubs. It was then that I fell in love with supply chains and decided to pursue a Master's degree in supply chain management and logistics. During this Master's programme, I worked in a very diverse, smart and international atmosphere where teamwork and excellence played a core role. As I wanted to remain in such an environment, it was soon clear to me that Roche was the place to be. The Start Supply Chain programme allows me to complete four different rotations and experience various roles, and to take part in a wide range of state-of-the-art projects!
Compared to my experience at university, science at Roche is all about the patient! All the different areas try to bring the most benefit possible to society by developing and delivering the most innovative medical solutions available.
The Start Supply Chain programme helps me to develop because it allows me to experience and contribute to very different areas/roles of Roche. Through this journey, I have met many brilliant professionals who have been very supportive and always open to walking me through their roles.
To people who are interested in the Start Supply Chain programme I would recommend to be open to learning from many experienced and skilled people who have done this programme, and to be bold enough to take the initiative, as there are always thrilling and challenging projects waiting for your participation!
