"If there's one word I need to remember, it's collective"

Can you tell us about a typical day?

There is no typical day as a Deputy Supply Director, and that is what is so exciting!
My days are shaped by the projects to be carried out, by the time devoted to supporting the teams on their mission and the analysis of indicators and reports linked to the implementation of new processes.

What do you like about THOM Group?

What I like is interacting both with the different departments of the company but also with external stakeholders, suppliers and service providers. Especially since the THOM Group Supply Chain is currently undergoing a revolution, with the integration of new tools and the desire to implement new processes.
We have some very motivating challenges!

What are the qualities necessary for your job?

Our jobs require rigour and organisation. And as with any management position, listening and dialogue skills and the ability to adapt are also essential.

Why did you choose THOM Group?

What clearly tipped the balance were the interviews I had during the recruitment process with the THOM Group teams: the discussions were very direct and transparent.
I got the impression of a company that valued communication, and that offered the opportunity to work on very different projects. I was won over!

What makes THOM Group a particularly human company for you?

THOM Group is a company that promotes dialogue and relationships between people but also initiative and a certain freedom of thought.
This also makes itself felt in the induction training we are given: THOM Group's desire is to put us in the best possible position to understand the company, but also to forge the first contacts with our future office colleagues.
Finally, all decisions are made by putting employees at the heart of the discussions.

Among the 5 values of the Group, which two speak to you the most? And how have you integrated them into your daily life?

Demandingness : aiming to achieve our objectives and bring to successful execution the projects that we wish to carry out. I often say, “let's speak with Data”. We should be demanding enough to justify the points that we put forward with factual elements.

Simplicity : availability, accessibility. Ensuring transparent, regular communication to keep teams informed of results and the progress of projects.

What do you think is the secret of a successful day?

A successful day begins with a good start. It's a day that is started energetically, an energy that collectively allows us to move forward on our projects. And very often, these days are marked green lights all the way!
