Eline Matthysen’s experience as Junior Trader Chemicals East-Africa:
"In 2017 I graduated and immediately started working at Manuchar. I was one of the youngest employees back then. At that age, deciding on a career path can be scary! But I have never regretted joining Manuchar. I've moved from Trade Administrator, to Sales Support and then to Junior Trader. Today I find myself working in a flexible, caring company full of driven and supportive people. I am in contact with colleagues, suppliers and customers from all over the world on a daily basis. My role is to take care of customers’ needs for raw materials and finding them the most competitive price. I’m very grateful to Manuchar for having considered my professional aspirations and for giving me the opportunity to take my career to the next level. Manuchar has stimulated and supported me in developing myself professionally as well as personally. I’m sure it will continue to do so in the future!"
