As a company committed to our people, we take pleasure in welcoming new members into our teams as they begin their journey with us.

Anna Kamionka joined our Cassel, UK site in April this year in the role of Recruiter. We spoke about making the move into this career area and got to know some more about her…

What attracted you to working for us?

“The Recruiter position in the chemical industry sparked my interest straight away as I have commercial experience in the chemical industry and background in recruitment and psychology.

“Lucite International has a very good reputation as an employer locally. I have been meaning to come back to recruitment for a while and waited for the right opportunity. My interview here convinced me that this is the right place for me. The conversation just flew by and seemed so natural. I got the feeling that this is a company focused on people as individuals and their potential.”

What does a typical day in your role involve?

“I meet with hiring managers and HR team members to discuss recruitment needs and vacancy requirements, advertise roles internally and externally, screen and assess job-applicants, engage passive candidates, and finally interview and extend offers to the successful applicants.”

What do you enjoy most about your work?

“It is business-oriented and people-oriented at the same time. I have the pleasure to get to know our business and new starters very well and I enjoy working with people inside and outside of our organization.

“I am very fortunate to do what I love… I help to find the right people for our vacancies and shape the company in this way. Since this is a standalone role, I can own vacancies end-to-end, share my knowledge and provide support across all positions and disciplines.”

How would you describe the environment/culture here?

“It is a very people-focused environment where you are valued and respected, receive challenges and mentoring and have advancement and learning opportunities. Everyone I’ve met so far is friendly, helpful and approachable.”

What is your passion outside of work?

“My family, travel, the outdoors, psychology, fashion.”

If you could switch places with one person for a day, who would it be?

“Amal Clooney – she is smart, accomplished, has a rewarding career, still seems very down to earth, manages to raise a family and is married to the handsome George Clooney. I would love to meet their Hollywood friends for a day but keep Amal’s wardrobe for longer!”

Describe working for Lucite International in three words…

“Exciting, rewarding, people-focused.”
