Eric, what is your field of expertise?
I’m an electrical technician. Currently, I am working at a company called Tropical Power Limited. The training I did was a diploma in electrical engineering and electronics from a technical institute in Kenya and then I joined an apprenticeship programme. It was a collaboration between Coca Cola and Krones LCS East Africa Limited and there I was trained as a mechatronic technician. I finished in the year 2020.
Have you ever been abroad?
No, I have never travelled to any other country. I’ve never left Kenya.
What would interest you most about a Team works! expert exchange assignment in Germany with the AGYO?
I want to learn about the culture in Germany. It is very different to my country. But I also want to learn about work-related things I would enjoy meeting other people from my specialist field and sharing ideas with them.
Would it be important for you to be accompanied by an older, experienced expert during your assignment in Germany?
I think it would be good to be supported by an experienced expert in Germany. He or she can guide you in what you do and can share a lot of knowledge with you. They can show you everything there. So I think this kind of support would be good.
