Tell us about your journey with KTL?

I joined KTL in 2020, initially as a warehouse operative. Before joining KTL, I had experience in the telecommunications industry, where I worked with different contractors in various positions, including warehouse supervisor, access coordinator, and junior project manager. This background provided me with valuable knowledge and understanding that has greatly benefited me in my current role at KTL.

My experience in the telecommunications industry in various roles has stood to me and helped me in my roles with KTL.


I believe that no task is too big or too small, and that there's no job that is beneath or above me. This has consistently guided my approach to work.


I'm confident in my communication skills; I’ve always worked to build strong, collaborative relationships with internal teams and external stakeholders and suppliers. I firmly believe that by consistently giving my best and treating others with respect, I contribute to creating a productive work environment.
