As a draughtsperson in our Sydney office, Myra initially focused on 2D drafting until she completed training for Autodesk Inventor which is a 3D modelling software package for mechanical design. “Since then, my role has evolved to include different types of drawings for the mechanical, electrical and process engineering departments,” said Myra. Recently, Myra was part of a small team that secured the first contract under BHP’s Supplier Innovation Program and she’s also been involved in our patented Viper filtration technology. “I’m most proud of working on such new and innovative projects. Whilst these products are challenging to work on, it is also exciting to see the successful implementation of such new technology with a motivated team of colleagues.” Myra encourages other women to be confident in what you bring to the table. “I believe my greatest strength is my efficiency and versatility. With varied experiences across multiple departments, I bring resourcing flexibility to the company.”


Zarizam is a key member of the finance team at our manufacturing facility in Malaysia. People who know Zarizam remember her for her unwavering positive attitude and for being a team player. “We are only a small team here in Malaysia and hence everyone needs to contribute for things to work. I always try to ensure that we have good communication in order to share the load and make sure no one is struggling,” she said. When the finance team recently upgraded its accounting system, Zarizam got involved in testing and identifying any teething issues to ensure a smooth transition for everyone. “Women are able to bring a different perspective which can result in better business outcomes. I am thankful to Jord for supporting myself and other women to succeed in such a male-dominated industry.”


Zarna encourages other women to “never forget their strength,” adding that her own personal strengths are passion for her work, adaptability to new work, and soft communication skills. As a structural design engineer at our Baroda office, Zarna is responsible for design and detailing of structural steel related activities for a variety of equipment and process plants, and she often coordinates 3D models and supports the sales team with quotes for bids. “Representing my department at the 2018 Jord conference in Sydney was such a proud moment for me,” said Zarna. She says women have the ability to manage work-life balance and she often works with her team to plan activities so no one has to stay late at the office.
