Get to know our Opal People: Linh Nguyen

One year ago, Linh Nguyen joined Opal as part of a 12-month Supply Chain Graduate program, and 10 months later was offered a permanent position with Opal.

After graduating with a Masters of Supply Chain Innovation at Swinburne University of Technology, Linh was excited to gain industry experience. “I wanted to deepen my knowledge and work on challenges that face supply chain operations,” Linh says.

Linh joined the Supply Chain Excellence team and began learning about the different systems and processes Opal uses and the operational rhythm of a complex and challenging function.

“The hands-on training gave me skills that a classroom can’t provide. I had the opportunity to work with various management tools and data analytics software.”

To help support Linh throughout the graduate program, Opal developed a structured approach with work experience exposure across Opal’s paper and packaging divisions. Linh worked across several sites in the Supply Chain, Procurement, Logistics and Sustainability teams. She also participated in multiple Opal site visits to understand how operations work.

“Visiting other Opal sites was one of the most exciting activities because I learned about Opal products and manufacturing best practices,” Linh says.

Linh has also been involved in logistics, procurement and supply chain projects and was responsible for end-user support for several applications.

“It was also incredibly rewarding to talk with Opal experts and hear their insights on supply chain while expanding my professional networks.

“The Opal Graduate Program has provided me with a safe place to learn, experience, grow, and prepare for my future journey. As an international student, the program has also provided me with excellent learning experiences and paved the path for my professional career at Opal and in Australia,” Linh says.
