What Our Staff Members Say

Sandy Le Coz, Human Resources Assistant, on block release
"Living in Saint Nazaire and being attracted by the maritime sector, Nantes ‒ Saint Nazaire Port seemed to me to be somewhere I would be able to flourish. Today, having the chance to do my block release training with Nantes ‒ Saint Nazaire Port is a real opportunity for me. I’m currently studying for a Bachelor’s degree in human resources management, and in September 2020 I joined the Human Resources Directorate, where I help with the recruitment, training and medical follow-up of our personnel."
