Maria Slimpa joined the Centre of Excellence recently – “As a new 4C joiner, being part of the CoE team helped me get a better understanding of the company’s focus by participating in and assisting various projects. Through that I learnt new tools and improved my technical skills. Additionally, I got to meet many people within 4C and get a better grasp of the different business sectors that the company has projects in.”
