Hi, I’m Merve Zorkaya. In 2014 I found Epiroc (Atlas Copco at that time) through a job search platform. I had never heard of the company before, and I did not even know anything about gold mining and copper. I started working in a sales support position where I quickly adapted to the team.
The atmosphere here makes you feel close to it, and I quickly found myself part of the family. I like to explore new places, especially to be nested with nature, to enter into unknown paths due to the location of the mines in the sales position, and to travel among the magnificent mountains. Having a lot of colleagues from different cultures is an excellent experience. The fact that you’re working in an international company gives each day a different taste.
“Although the number of women working in the mining sector is low and the conditions are difficult, Epiroc supports female employees to be more active in the sector and stands fearless behind of it’s employees. ”
