“Working with people motivates me to meet everyday challenges”
I started at Nordea fairly recently. However, I have been familiar with Nordea’s corporate culture for some years. Previously I have worked for Nordea Bank Polska as a credit adviser and then as branch manager. I started working in Nordea Operations Centre in January 2015 and I immediately felt at home. I’m manager of a team responsible for capital market products. Working with people motivates me to meet everyday challenges, and it is a constant source of enriching experiences. Because a manager’s job is all about working with other people, it is my colleagues that inspire my work. Also, working at Nordea Operations Centre has allowed me to maintain a healthy balance between my work and my family. And because Nordea is a great supporter of physical exercise and sports, it has also allowed me to pursue some of my other interests, such as basketball, cycling and running. If you value finding a balance between your professional and private life, you should consider joining us.
“After work, I always have time for my family, which is very important to me”
I have worked at Nordea Operations Centre since 2010. I started as a junior specialist in a team dealing with the reconciliation of nostro accounts. Within a year’s time, we took over the whole business process, and from January to July 2012 I was the nostro team junior coordinator.
When I found out that I was pregnant, I was extremely happy, but also concerned about returning to work after my maternity leave. As it later turned out, I didn't need to worry. I returned to the same position, and I continued developing my managerial skills in a different team. From January 2015, I have a management position, being the coordinator of the Incoming and Outgoing Payments FI team.
I’m a young mother, but I also have professional goals. Working at Nordea gives me the opportunity for personal development and advancement. It also brings me a lot of satisfaction and fulfilment. Thanks to the possibilities of promotion, I am motivated in my work, and I constantly strive to improve my skills. And after work I have time for my family, which is very important to me. I always try my best at work and I am always looking for ways to improve. I have learned that if you believe in your own capabilities and what you are working towards, then results are sure to follow.
“In our company, the employees set the tone”
This is what separates Nordea Operations Centre from other corporations. Our daily work is determined, not only by Nordea’s universal values, which are with us at each step, but also by the possibility of setting and fulfilling our own goals in the projects.
For a long time I have participated in the Nordea Operations Centre Tour – an initiative which aims to establish a dialogue between us and our partners in Nordic countries.
My duties include giving presentations to visitors from Nordic countries about our current state, accomplishments and team goals. I always ensure that there is a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Having the opportunity to personally be in touch with our Nordic managers is very rewarding. It gives me the feeling of my personal contribution to the operations of the whole company.
“What we do every day at work can have an effect on world events”
When I started working at Nordea Operations Centre, I didn’t know that I would have the chance to create completely new business processes, thereby contributing to global security. Working in a back office was not something that I had planned, but I simply could not ignore all the praise that my friends had for Nordea. After a successful interview, I was given a leadership position in a team involved in efforts against money laundering. Even though we might not be aware of it, what we do every day at work can have an effect on world events. I'm very happy that our efforts have an impact on international security, environmental protection and corporate social responsibility.
