Accounts Payable Operations Manager
How did you develop in your roles, within E.ON Business Services Cluj?
I joined E.ON Business Services Cluj in 2013 and have filled positions of increasing responsibility and visibility throughout my time with the company. My role has progressed from starting in the Accounts Payable department as an expert in the first transitions for Germany through to the role of Team Coordinator, which led to my current position as an Operations Manager.
Why did you decide to work as Accounts Payable Expert at E.ON Business Services Cluj?
As I was evaluating new career opportunities, E.ON Business Services Cluj clearly surpassed all its competitors. What captivated me the most was the opportunity to grow and to work directly with the largest globally-engaged energy company. Financial motivation is always great, but it’s so much more than that here; it is also the people and the work. Clients really appreciate our ability to be innovative and the constant improvements and challenges are keeping me motivated. My development within the business was very structured and this made the integration with the new challenging positions easier for me. With each promotion, I was able to take the experience gained from my previous role and apply the tools to my new job.
What is, in your opinion, the most important benefit the company offers its employees and why?
Here I have to underline some important benefits: the high quality training, the flexible work time and the extra annual leave days provided by the company. All these present a prime opportunity for development and reconciliation of a better work and personal life balance.
What do you enjoy most about your work?
Each level of increasing responsibility has brought unforeseen challenges that required tough decisions and justifications. My current position is more strategic and tactical, and I am asked to provide input to many decisions that have no textbook solutions. Every working day is different and, in most of the cases, unforeseeable - which keeps me very active the entire day. The team spirit and close collaboration with people also keep me motivated. Passion and commitment are very important to me; I am lucky to have this in our great team. We work in a very international and dynamic atmosphere, and my position gives me the opportunity to discover different markets, processes and cultures. This allows for a lot of interesting experiences that help us to see things from a different perspective.
