Cargill is amazing company. Every day you can learn something new. My colleagues are seasoned professionals, and even interaction with them helps me develop, and become a better professional myself.

My role at Cargill

As an HR Accountant, I`m responsible for payroll (booking, reconciliation etc.). Salary expenses are the major expenses in most cost centers (especially in the Administration department), and they reflect all business units. Therefore, it is crucial for me to perform my duties with a high level of precision and confidentiality. I am also involved in an HR Project, called GACA. It is related to compensations of expats in the EMEA region.

My advice

Work hard and enjoy the time at Cargill.
