A Day in the Life of our Cornelians
Carne, as the manager of Health & Safety, engages in a dynamic range of tasks that necessitate a keen focus on data analysis to identify any emerging trends, patterns, or correlations between near misses. He attends various meetings on health and safety matters whilst collaborating with the different departments of our company.
Carne finds it gratifying to collaborate with different departments on new initiatives that further enhance the support and development of staff, as well as Cornelius as a business. He values our ability to contribute to a greater cause while fostering individual professional growth and autonomy, supported by senior management.
On a lighter note, Carne shared the ability to fly as his preferred superpower, to avoid spending hours cramped on a plane. Additionally, he reminisced about his childhood teddy bear, fondly named “Scruff”, but tactfully declined to comment on its current whereabouts.
Edyta Dyksinska is the Quality and Regulatory Manager at Cornelius, and assumes responsibility for quality management and ensuring compliance with current European and local legal regulations. Her role involves maintaining and improving standards aligned with ISO and ESAD.
Reflecting on her biggest challenge this year, Edyta emphasised the ongoing endeavour of persuading government officials to align with her viewpoints. Notably, she successfully convinced them to extend the expiration date of the CITES import permit, saving Cornelius from product disposal, financial losses, and customer disappointment due to undelivered goods.
Edyta finds solace in the simple pleasure of enjoying another cup of hot coffee during her workdays. When asked what historical event she could experience, it was her fascination with ancient civilisations and their mysteries and secrets that piqued Edyta’s interest. Lastly, when asked about the best Disney villain, she nominated the Beast from “Beauty and the Beast”, noting that even villains can possess redeeming qualities.
Kevin Marsh, one of our Maintenance Engineers, assumes responsibility for efficiently organising and executing preventive maintenance measures while promptly addressing various breakdowns. His expertise is particularly valuable in high-end projects aimed at advancing the development of Cornelius.
When queried about his most cherished aspect of his job, Kevin emphasised the satisfaction he gets from the diverse range of tasks and the opportunity to collaborate across various departments.
Working at Cornelius, Kevin appreciates our strong emphasis on workforce diversity and the collective commitment to optimising plant performance.
Regarding his most memorable concert experience, Kevin fondly recollected a Kula Shaker concert. Asked what he’d do if aliens landed in his back garden, Kevin said that after offering to help with repairs, he’d see if they fancied a beer or two.
