Your new colleagues – in their own words
Senior HR Consultant
“I started my Industrial Business Management course at Arvato Financial Solutions in August 2006 and completed it in January 2009. During my course, I was already assigned a position in the company, starting out as a secretary and assistant to the Head of HR. In May 2010 I moved to HR Support in the Collection division at Verl and progressed through increasingly advanced and responsible duties. At the same time I took additional Chamber of Commerce qualifications in HR Management. At the moment I’m a Senior HR Consultant with responsibility for a range of specialist areas including IT and Market, and some departments such as Commercial, HR and Marketing. I really enjoy working in a young, dynamic environment and playing an active part in shaping our operations.”
Key Account Manager Collection
“After studying Economics, in July 2013 I started at Arvato Financial Solutions in the position of Assistant to the Management. As well as working on operational and strategic projects, I was able to support the Customer Service team in a variety of customer-related areas from an early stage. I’ve now been a Key Account Manager in the Collection division since January 2015, and support several customers in the field of telecommunications/digital business models at our Verl and Baden-Baden offices. I also coordinate sales activities for new customer acquisition. What I like best about working here at Arvato Financial Solutions is that I was entrusted with responsibility early on in my career, and have been able to advance my personal and professional skills in the years since.”
Vice President TIME (Telekommunikation, Information, Medien, Entertainment)
“I joined Arvato Financial Solutions in August 2008 as a legal advisor / project manager in their Collection division. In 2009 I took on a Key Account Management project, which helped me to develop further. By July 2011 I had full responsibility for all customers in the telecommunications sector, and am currently Vice President TIME (Telecommunications, Information, Media, Entertainment). What fascinates me most about Arvato Financial Solutions is their hands-on mentality; the philosophy is ‘Just do it’.”
“I started my dual education course in Engineering, majoring in IT, at aFS in September 2004 and graduated in September 2007. I was immediately taken on as Junior Software Developer for the in-house collection system, and from 2010 I worked my way up from specialist team coordinator to Team Leader IT, with disciplinary management responsibility. The great thing about working at Arvato Financial Solutions is the variety; even after ten years, I’m never bored. There’s still something new to explore every day.”
Team Leader Receivables Management
“I started off as a Receivables Management clerk in 2013 and was Team Leader of a team in Arvato’s German Receivables Management operations by 2015. I really enjoy my job at Arvato Financial Solutions because I have the chance of working independently on developing solutions, in an environment that offers lots of exciting challenges. Another great thing is that after I finished my training I quickly got the chance to achieve my career goals, and when I decided to continue my studies part-time, I had the support of the company.”
Department Head of Banking (Collection)
“I started my career as a data analyst in our purchasing entity. In 2012 I became Team Leader of the Business Intelligence department at our German Collection division. After taking parental leave, I was part-time Department Head of the Banking unit in our Collection division. I think my career is the best example of how work and family can be combined thanks to flexible working hours.”
