Graduate Projects Engineer
Jack studied Bachelor of Engineering at University of Auckland

Growing up in a small town in rural NZ I got involved in as many sports, activities and groups as I could. At high school I enjoyed subjects such as Mathematics with Calculus, Physics, and Chemistry. That coupled with my love for problem solving led me to pursue a bachelor of Engineering at Auckland University, specialising in CHEMMAT.

At Ixom I work within the NZ Projects team to investigate, plan and supervise ongoing projects at our manufacturing and storage sites throughout New Zealand. At the moment some of my projects include Mixing Tank Replacement, change in delivery method of a product to a specific customer, reallocation of products stored on one of our sites, and work with the safety case to comply with new MHF requirements.

With the graduate program you are surrounded by a network of people aiming to develop you so you can see what role within the company best suits you. The opportunity to travel to different areas (both in the company and in Oceania) is a fantastic and broadening experience.
