how is your career at randstad?
I came to Randstad by accident. I dreamed of a career in science, I wanted to stay for a PhD at the University, as an ethnologist to research cultures, travel and give lectures. During the summer holidays I got an internship offer from Randstad. After the internship, I started working as a junior billing specialist. And so began my greatest professional chapter in my life.
Quite unexpectedly, it turned out that in matters related to working time I discovered a great professional passion in my life and realized that this is what I would like to do professionally.
While working, I raised my qualifications with courses, trainings and postgraduate studies, and Randstad developed very dynamically. In 2009, I was promoted to the position of Senior Card and Payroll Specialist, and after 3 years I took the position of the Head of the Human Resources and Payroll Team. Currently, I manage Randstad Payroll Solutions branches in three locations.
I look after my teams, support them in the optimization of processes, I also conduct training for clients and employees in HR and payroll, SAP; I also take part in company-wide projects, e.g. the implementation of Lean Management.
In 2016, I took part in the first edition of the Randstad 2016 Talent Program. Participation in such a program is an honor and a huge dose of motivation for the next years of work.
I have a great team, I work with great clients and today I know it was meant to be. Life is the art of choice. Earlier dreams of a scientific career are gone - the remaining passion for traveling near and far.
The most important thing is that I work in a company that offers many development opportunities with cheerful people full of good ideas. I would not change that.

Once, while walking past the reception desk in the local office, I found a large group of people waiting for health and safety training. Despite such a large group of people, the room was filled with silence. At one point someone's cell phone rang. After a few rings, there was a nervous purr at first, followed by the voice of our receptionist:
- "RMF FM my and your music"
As you can see, we like to make our employees smile.
