Agnieszka Musial, Environment Advisor
I joined Tate & Lyle Sugars because… the company was a known world leader in the food sector and had a great reputation; I also had a particular interest in the process of refining sugar and its impact on the environment. I wanted to work in London and the refinery was a great location for me.
What is it like to work for Tate & Lyle Sugars?... It’s great to be part of an operation that works on such a grand scale. Although I found my role challenging in the early days, the people I work with are all very supportive. Tate & Lyle Sugars has a unique and friendly environment that creates a special place to work.
My current role… as an Environment Advisor means I am responsible for maintaining a high standard of environmental performance for the business. This means ensuring that the activities of our business are in accordance with the internal environmental management system and corporate environmental policies. A large part of my role is to ensure compliance with all local and national regulations.
My career history… I graduated with an MSc in Environmental Engineering from Krakow University of Technology, Poland.
