Say hello👋 to Assil; based in Egypt 📍, Assil is our Gum & Developing Categories Supply Planning head for Mars Middle East & Africa. "When I was pregnant and it was time to go for maternity leave, it was a stressful point in my career because I wanted to spend most of my time with my baby 👶, but at the same time wanted to grow in my career and in my new role. Mars took a leap of faith with me and empowered me to do both! I was able to have a fulfilling maternity leave and go back to find my role waiting for me; I was provided flexibility on all aspects, enabling me to take care of my baby without guilt and stay motivated to deliver strong results in my job. Most women suffer from career setbacks due to motherhood and maternity leave, but not at Mars!" Would you like to join Mars, and discover what life's truly like as a Mars Associate?
