Do you enjoy support from Petrofac’s leadership?
Integrity and ethics are the main traits of how we do business, and we, as a function, we enjoy great support from all members of the leadership team. Our leaders understand that this is the way to go. Leadership is taking active steps to embed compliance in their business rhythm and champion this approach. The tone is set at the top and always starts with leaders. Compliance, as a function, helps by providing talking points about specific risk areas or training and awareness needs, with relevant information that would allow them to own the compliance risk or agenda, but driving a culture change must come from leaders. Our leaders welcome that, they are collaborative, and support this approach.
Let’s talk about your career at Petrofac. Is Petrofac a good place to work at?
I am a passionate person and I like roles that allow me to build something. I put my heart into it. Petrofac allows that. Allows you to create, to try and to explore, to make things better. Will I be working in Investigations or Compliance forever? Maybe not. Once you accomplished your goal, you need a different challenge and I want to find that challenge with Petrofac.
Looking back at your career so far, is there anything that you would do differently?
Maybe soften my edge. I have always been recognised for two things: speaking truth to power; and seeing outside the box/always wanting to challenge the status quo. When I worked with people who resisted change, this has, on occasion, caused friction. If I were to go back and change anything maybe this would be it…but I don’t think I would be the same person, so no, I wouldn’t change anything [laughs]!!!
