I am very pleased that our company, despite its considerable growth, has managed to keep a good atmosphere. The commitment, the willingness to cooperate and help is one of the special features of Sollers Consulting which we try to cultivate.
Why did you decide to join the team at Sollers Consulting?
After my studies, I was considering in which field to start my career and quickly learn new skills. What was crucial to me in my future job was the range and variety of my daily tasks and the feeling that it supports my development. That is why I decided to start my adventure in consulting. The fact that Sollers offered a combination of business knowledge and technical skills, really suited me. Besides, at that time with 50 people on board, the atmosphere was very friendly, and I had direct access not only to the essential knowledge, but also my colleagues’ experience.
What do you remember about your first project?
The scope of my first project was business advisory. We were to support our client in choosing the right system. During those few months, I got familiar with all projects’ processes, starting with creating the offer for the client, verification of suppliers’ answers, as well as preparing the final recommendation. It was a busy time, but my experienced teammates were very helpful, supporting me with their knowledge and teaching the craft.
In your opinion, what factors play a decisive role in the succeeding in consulting?
From my point of view, the ability to adapt fast and openness to constant learning are key. I think that good communication and presenting skills are also essential. We work with clients on a daily basis, support them in defining requirements and giving recommendations, so soft skills are a must in our work.
What do you currently do?
Currently I am a manager on big project in Germany, where we are working on implementing an operation system for our client. I am also responsible for supporting the communication between two companies, I supervise the process of introducing new employees and participate in the company’s recruitment process. The project requires knowledge of German, the language I had not used since my studies. And that’s exactly what I appreciate about consulting – for always giving me chances for self-development.
