HEADFIRST INTO THE DEEP END.
You have a slight French accent, don’t you?
Correct, yes. I came here straight from Strasbourg.
When I arrived, I only knew two expressions: ‘Hello’ and ‘thank you’. With that and a smile you can manage well.
From Strasbourg to Magdeburg?
I studied in Strasbourg and I always wanted to gain international experience. Furthermore, I was fascinated by the German language. I learned English but never German. After I finished my studies in 2016, I moved to Germany, to Hannover, and there I started to learn German.
Then I read this advertisement online about SCHUBERTH looking for staff for the French market. So I applied. I then got a confirmation at short notice and then I started working here.
What exactly do you do at SCHUBERTH?
I work in back office sales as a Sales Administrator. I deal with the French market. As an employee in back office sales, I work closely with my colleagues in the sales team. They visit the customers in France and I am here in Magdeburg in a customer service role. The customers send their orders to me and I enter them into the system.
Was SCHUBERTH your only application?
No, I had applied for jobs elsewhere, too. But I chose SCHUBERTH very quickly. I like this industry and I’m interested in anything to do with sports. And the French-speaking role...it’s perfect.
You are interested in sports, what do you do?
I like swimming, that’s my favourite sport - in the pool but also in the sea. Jumping into the water is the best feeling. It is very calm under the water and it feels like you are in a different world.
Courage and curiosity are two important qualities for an internationally successful company. It requires an unconditional willingness to change, to develop and to try new things. Every day, we must question established working methods and find new solutions and ways forward.
