This was something I could not do prior to joining Routeco. The friendly atmosphere that is apparent throughout the business and staff is also a great benefit.
What tips or advice do you have for future Routeco candidates?
In my short time here, I have felt very welcomed and that Routeco wants to assist its employees to develop and improve, so if you are dedicated to self-improvement as well as your work, then Routeco is a great choice.
What is your career highlight?
When the credits rolled on the animation I created for the Kick off meeting 2019, it was nice to see my work in front of the business.
