Challenges and perceptions when being promoted to a leadership position!

My name is Vanderson Oliveira and I’ve been part of the Citróleo Group since 2007. Within these 14 years in the company I’ve worked in several areas of the production process, which allowed me to acquire a lot of knowledge and experience in all stages of production of the products in our portfolio.

Initially, in 2007 I joined the company assuming the position of Production Assistant working in the candeia oil extraction process, after one year I was promoted to Boiler Operator and worked in this position for 2 years. Then I moved to the Refinery area, passing by Production Auxiliary I, then Production Auxiliary II and finally Production Auxiliary III.

Recently, in 2021, I received a proposal to assume the position of Production Supervisor, which at first made me a little scared, after all I knew all the responsibilities of this position. But, at the same time, I was very happy to know that Citróleo Group believes in me and in my potential to assume such leadership! I was very grateful for the opportunity for growth within the company, where even in the midst of a global pandemic, when unfortunately many people around the world are becoming unemployed, I had the opportunity for growth within the company. This brings me even more the feeling of loyalty to the Group.

However, this job promotion was also a challenging time in my career as previously I only had experience with the raw production processes, without access and experience to the remote processes and systems of the entire production process. So my biggest challenge was starting from scratch, taking on responsibilities that I never imagined taking on. However, I have been learning from some and teaching others day after day within the Citróleo Group.

I would like to thank everyone in the Group and say that together we are a very dedicated and competent team!
