Your ambition. Our success
Simone van de Koppel

Why did I choose Pon

In my first job, I was looking for an environment that continuously challenges me on a professional- as well as a personal level. The management traineeship of Pon offers me the opportunity to experiment with being in different roles as a person because of the several assignments you execute within the traineeship.  I can learn in diverse organizational settings and discover organizational cultures. Besides these opportunities to develop myself, I immediately felt home at Pon because of the people I met during internal- and external events which made me choose for Pon without any doubt.

Project 1 / Pon Equipment
Country / Netherlands
City / Vuren
Discipline / Operational, process optimization
Project date / 1st of February 2017 – 1st of August 2017

During my first project in Vuren, I designed a product flow for this new venue of Pon Equipment. The flow started at the moment of receiving the machines till delivery to the client. A major part of this flow is the prepping procedure of the machines including designing a workshop in Vuren where the prepping takes place.

Project 2 / Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles
Country / The Netherlands
City / Leusden
Discipline / Innovation, product marketing
Project date / 1st of August – 1st of February

A central topic within Pon is innovation, so it is for Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles. For one of the innovation projects, I focused on product marketing. Within product marketing I executed a market potential analysis and created a business case to investigate whether the concept is feasible.

Why should you consider Pon

Because of the unique combination of ‘enjoying the freedom to build your own career’ and feeling supported by the environment you are operating in, like your manager, mentor, coach and fellow trainees. You have the freedom to take the lead in projects/initiatives, to explore in a business environment and you are allowed to make mistakes as we all do in order to grow. For me, the traineeship is the perfect trajectory to learn and develop myself.

Passion to perform

Especially, working with different type of people fascinates me and that’s related to my ambition. I would like to learn from the diverse people within Pon, understand them and being able to motivate them to reach a specific goal. In the future, I would like to be a manager of a team, being a facilitator in a way that every person can get the most out of him/herself and achieve goals with the team as a whole!
