Driven by a strong ambition to succeed, Camilla has embarked on a versatile and challenging career journey to reach her goals. Over the years, she has worked in sales and various administrative roles, always striving for new opportunities to grow and develop. Camilla has long dreamed of working for a multinational company that values diversity, inclusion, and professional development. When the opportunity to join the team at DP World Santos presented itself, she was thrilled to seize it with enthusiasm.
"My name is Camilla Grossi, and I am a 25-year-old Environmental Technician at DP World Santos in Brazil. I am a qualified Environmental Engineer and Maritime Scientist, and I take great pride in my work.
Working for DP World has been a series of firsts for me. It was my first experience working at a port, my first multinational company, and DP World has even given me the opportunity to travel outside the country for the first time, allowing me to fulfil a lifelong dream of working abroad and learning about other cultures.
I joined DP World in 2017 as an intern for just one month, while I held a permanent role elsewhere. At the time, my livelihood depended on the salary I earned. Despite this, I gathered the courage to apply for a permanent position at DP World. When I received the news that I had been selected, I worked both jobs and embarked on this journey. After just one month, I knew I had found my passion for environmental work and was determined to continue working for DP World."
Guest Auditor Programme
“After completing an intensive two-year internship with the Environmental Department at DP World Santos, I was promoted to the role of Environmental Technician. In this position, I have been fortunate enough to work on several innovative projects, such as the Zero Landfill Project for DP World Santos. To see these projects have a direct positive impact on the environment we operate in very rewarding at both professional and personal levels. And then came the GAP Programme!
In 2022 I built up the courage to apply to the Guest Auditor Programme. I was exhilarated when I was selected to participate in this prestigious and competitive Programme that DP World offers to all employees across all functions Globally.
The GAP offers high-performing individuals from across the DP World Group the opportunity to join specific assignments in locations around the world as part of the Group's Internal Audit team. I applied to the programme because I am passionate about DP World's culture and wanted to learn more, do more, and share experiences beyond the boundaries of my own department.
I had never traveled outside of Brazil before the GAP, so I was excited to work with the team in Turkey. During the programme, I learned about the audit process and gained a more comprehensive understanding of our business. I was able to contribute my knowledge of environmental sustainability by actively auditing these areas at DP World Yarimca.
The real highlight of my experience in Turkey was not just the wonderfully welcoming local team but also the beautiful city of Istanbul. I even joked when we were out having dinner on our boat tour of the Bosphorus that, with the dancers and the music and the food and the people, I had never seen so many different cultures all in one place. For that split second, I felt like the luckiest person in the world. It’s a special memory I will keep forever."
Those Who Pass By Us, Do Not Go Alone
“My journey at DP World is like a love story where I have learnt and developed. I have learnt how powerful and enriching the melding of cultures can be. It is incredible how different people can come together to create something new. There is a quote that I like a lot, which says: ‘Those who pass by us, do not go alone, and do not leave us alone; they leave a bit of themselves, and take a little of us.’ That is what DP World means to me: learning, teaching and sharing all at the same time.
“We are made of small fragments of everything we have lived and learnt, and DP World is largely responsible for the professional I have become. All the challenges I've faced have fuelled me to pursue my dreams – and I am looking forward to the next ones to come.”
