“I have never felt that being a woman has been a serious roadblock. Constellium’s senior management is very supportive of women and has given me opportunities to grow in my roles.”
LaDonna, Plant Manager,
Van Buren, USA
“Constellium has always given me opportunities to discover new areas, from controlling to strategy, finance to project management, at different levels of the organization: various BUs, corporate... I'm sure my organizational skills are as useful at home managing the daily life of our family of four kids as in my professional life."
Mathilde, Project Financial Controller
"When I joined Constellium three years ago, I started working in the foundry department where I was driving a 22 ton forklift. I then became an operator in the quality lab, moving from the handling of a 10-ton slab to the analysis of small samples weighting only a few grams.”
Nathalie, Quality Operator
“I enjoy working at Constellium for its variety—of customers in several industries, suppliers big and small and especially its people. I am happy to have the chance to work with partners in the sales, supply chain, purchasing and quality teams, as well as plant managers, from diverse European countries. By bringing together people with different points of view and experiences, we can share information and ideas to continuously adapt to new challenges and environments, finding profitable solutions for our customers and Constellium.”
Anne, Business Planning & Purchasing Dir. For Soft Alloys Europe
“I’ve worked at Constellium for almost 10 years. The management has always been supportive and has given me many opportunities to grow. I am proud of my development path at Constellium and of my contribution to Constellium’s success.”
Sabrina, Sales Manager Cosmetics, Singen, Germany
“For me a good employer gives each individual the opportunity to grow and to gain appreciation for your performance. I found such a company with Constellium after my studies with focus on Human Resources.
It was easy for me to become established at Constellium and I have been respected by everyone from the very beginning. I have the opportunity to fully utilize my potential and to develop myself continuously.
Equality plays a crucial role, especially in HR, e.g. in the selection of applicants as well as in conversations with employees - finally it's the personality that counts.”
Anna, HR Generalist, Gottmadingen, Germany
"What I particularly like about Constellium Automotive Structures is that we can count the major automobile manufacturers among our customers. The successful cooperation with our customers is based among others on our communication within our customer teams as well as on the connection of technical and commercial knowledge of each individual. I value my varied area of responsibility and the opportunity at Constellium to develop beyond my department."
Fabienne, Sales Manager, Gottmadingen, Germany
“I am a mechanical engineering apprentice, currently training how to drive the press. I like working for Constellium because I have enjoyed seeing my development within the company and gained the confidence and knowledge to carry out parts of the process on my own. I have been continually supported and guided through various training programs, with help from my managers and colleagues, to try to be the best that I can be. I am excited to see what I can achieve within my apprenticeship and continue my journey with Constellium.”
Jaycee, Mechanical Engineering Apprentice, London, UK
“As a young girl, I was so excited and proud to participate to Alusuisse’s children Christmas Party thanks to my dad who also worked for the Group.
When I joined Constellium, 28 years ago, it was with the same enthusiasm and pride, even if life hasn’t always been a long calm river. I started in the Accounting department and now, I am part of the Inside Sales team. I love the everyday opportunities to practice and improve my language skills in French, German, English and Spanish, and also to help my colleagues. Constellium gave me the chance to learn Sign Language to help and translate for a deaf colleague, what a wonderful experience! In my personal life, I’m proud to be the first woman President of the Ski Club Aluminium Valais. I am recognized for my communicable laugh, which can be heard through corridors, and also for my zen attitude thanks to yoga.”
Monique, Inside Sales A&T, Valais, Switzerland
“Joining Constellium, after almost 20 years as a Tax lawyer, provided me with the opportunity to be in the driving seat. As a global head of tax with the support of my team, I have the freedom of being creative to support our business partners and optimize Constellium’ s assets and performance. I do consider my professional journey to be a significant lever of my personal development, hence, a key ingredient of who I am.”
Priscilla, Global Tax Director
"In my current role as Supply Chain and Quality Improvement Program leader for Airbus, I have a global and strategic vision of our business, with a customer focus. After being trained as an engineer, I was trusted to develop my skills in several positions and several locations: Lead Buyer at Purchases for manufacturing equipment, Black Belt in Continuous Improvement, Quality manager, first at the Neuf Brisach plant and then at Issoire. I was able to have a family life and develop professionally: I was expecting my first child as I was hired at Constellium!”
Carole, Supply Chain and Quality Improvement Program leader, Issoire, France
“From young age it was instilled in me to give 100% in everything I do, face each challenge as a growth opportunity, and learn from situations that did not go as planned. This is something that I apply both at work and at home. Being a working mother is not always easy, but it is important that my children know, that no matter the circumstance, I gave it my all and grew from the experience. “
Kelly, Master Data Specialist, Bowling Green, Kentucky, USA
"Happy International Women’s Day! At almost a year with Constellium, it’s affirming to hear the positive experiences other women are having at Constellium. It is also encouraging to know the company creates a culture that fosters both, professional and personal development. I’ve experienced both & I look forward to the future of women at Constellium!"
Jessica, Office Manager, Baltimore, USA
"Coming from an engineering background, I have always evolved in the industrial environment. What I appreciate about my position at Constellium is the technical aspect of aluminum processing, but also my role as an interface between customer and manufacturing requirements. Working with diverse teams is an integral part of my job. And reconciling family life and professional life is quite possible!”"
Aurelie, Quality Representative, Neuf-Brisach, France
"Women in the metallurgical heavy industry: not that long ago, something unbelievable, even impossible!
A customer visiting some months ago Issoire’s site was positively surprised and recognizing the presence of women at many different jobs. At Constellium, women are fully included and mixed teams are always very rich in ideas and solution findings."
Anne-Sophie, Segment Manager FEDSS
“I joined Constellium as an apprentice and had the chance to meet people who took the time to train me and who trusted me. This experience allowed me to get my Master’s degree in Human Resources’ Management and then to be hired as Constellium’s HR Information System administrator.”
Elodie, HRIS Administrator, Paris, France
"You could think that working in a men’s world is a tough job, and you would be right. But what stands out the most here in Constellium is respect and kindness.”
Pauline, Supply Chain technician, Montreuil Juigné, France
“Working at Constellium has afforded me a great opportunity to expand my depth of knowledge and understanding of aluminum processes and procedures. The theme for this year’s international women’s day is “balance for better”. I believe Constellium embodies that theme by allowing me the opportunity to be a change agent in the fast paced industry of automotive development.”
Reginna Burrell, PhD
Customer Quality Engineer, Muscle Shoals, USA
