Mars has a very “try this” mentality and really throws you into big projects and gives you the opportunity to make a difference. The projects are fast-paced, fun and exciting. I also like that I get to interact with senior leaders on a daily basis – learning from my seniors is inspiring, informative and something which is really important to me.

There are many reasons why people stay at Mars for so long but, as a woman, I can say that certainly the number of strong female role models across the business is a determining factor.

The best thing about working for Mars is definitely the people. Everyone is so collaborative and caring – it definitely feels like being part of a family business. The approachability of senior leaders is a great part of working here - I love that you can go up to a General Manager’s desk for a chat.
