Tell us about yourself
I’m married with two kids and I work part-time. In my job, I prepare tax returns, support and accompany audits and coordinate the annual financial statement.
What do you like about Voith?
The international character of Voith and the diversity of its people fascinate me, as do the international perspective and variety of activities and the friendly working environment.
Voith places great emphasis on employee friendliness and a good work–life balance. When I returned after my maternity leave, Voith made it possible for me to work part-time.
Can you tell us a little about your job?
As a commissioning engineer, you spend your life at construction sites. In my eight years on the job, I have put machines into service all over the world. I work in Asia a lot, especially in China, South Korea and India. But there are also projects in Europe. Commissioning on site is a lot of work, but it’s stimulating and there is lots of variety.
What do you like about working for Voith Paper?
It fascinates me that these huge machines, in a highly complex process, produce something as delicate as paper! I’ve had the opportunity to gain a lot of experience in an extremely short period of time, and I was allowed to take on responsibility pretty early on.
What is your experience with team work?
Co-workers from very different departments and, frequently, different countries come together when we commission a medium-sized facility. At the last site I was working on, the team comprised people from eight nations. That’s both interesting and challenging. It’s an ideal opportunity to grow your soft skills, your collaborative skills and build your problem-solving expertise. After all, in commissioning everything has to be a perfect fit, down to the last screw.
