You completed a traineeship at steute to become an IBMA. What has been your career path at steute, and what are your current tasks?
Once I had completed my traineeship in 2007, I started work in the Accounts department, on the accounts payable side. After approx. 1 year I asked to change to Sales because I wanted to have direct contact to customers and more variety in my everyday work.
Since then I have been a "saleswoman" looking after customers, from writing offers all the way through to writing invoices. I manage order processing and I monitor delivery dates and shipping of the goods. At the same time, I support the customers when they have any requests or problems.
In June 2021, I acquired some additional organisational tasks when I was asked to lead our Meditec Sales team. That showed great trust and made me very proud.

What do you like most about steute?
I love the flexibility I already mentioned, as well as the consideration taken. We are also shown a lot of trust in our daily work. At steute I feel valued as an employee and like I made the right choice. Our Management always endeavours to give us that bit extra: in the Summer we have a company barbecue, during Advent it is a tradition that we always get a chocolate Father Christmas from Lindt, and then there is the Christmas market which is built up on the premises. Things like that make the employees feel important.
