TURIN, Italy – 30th May 2018 – PETRONAS Lubricants International (PLI), reinforced its commitment to talent development by launching a search for candidates to participate in its Global Graduate Program “Leaders-in-Training [LiT]”, at the Polytechnic University of Turin, earlier last week.
The initiative, which began in Malaysia involves a three-year development program for graduates in automotive, chemical and mechanical engineering, as well as chemistry, and physics to join PLI’s vibrant workforce worldwide. PETRONAS offers exciting opportunities for young, dynamic and highly motivated individuals to become future industry leaders who can contribute meaningfully to society.
The event held at the Polytechnic University saw PLI’s Managing Director and Group CEO, Giuseppe D’Arrigo, engage with students about how changes in technology impact business and the landscape of the industry. He also encouraged graduates to venture beyond traditional jobs and think about passion and purpose instead.
Hosted by the Polytechnic University’s Centre for Automotive Research and Sustainable Mobility (CAR), the event also provided students with the rare opportunity to meet PETRONAS Motorsports Technical Engineer, Salvatore Schembri, as well as Alberto Colombo and Fabio D’Andrea from the Global Research & Technology Mechanical Testing and Customer Technical Support teams respectively — the technical strength behind PETRONAS’ success in Formula One
Other highlights of the day included an afternoon with PLI’s Human Resource team who shared more about careers with PLI; and the display of the Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS F1 W08 EQ Power Silver Arrow and Fiat 124 Abarth Rally cars, both run with PETRONAS Fluid Technology Solutions™.
A global business with a presence in over 90 countries, PETRONAS leverages technology as a key differentiator to drive sustainable growth and deliver innovative products and services to its partners and customers. Recently, it launched a state-of-the-art Global Research and Technology Centre here, which will serve as a hub for fluid technology research carried out at its satellite research facilities worldwide.
