Title: Financial systems specialist
Education: Certified Business Economist
Employed in: 2002
Merete is employed as a Financial Systems Specialist and works exclusively as a Project Employee with “Team Systems” in the department of Controlling and Processes. She primarily works with the development of new functions and solutions in SEAS-NVE's SAP system and ensures that the various implementations run as smoothly as possible. Merete also spends a lot of time on making financial calculations of the consequences of externally imposed legal requirements or business decisions that may influence liquidity.
Merete started her work in SEAS-NVE temping in the customer centre while she was waiting for a new accounting job.
- I was only going to be here for two weeks. I have always been a little restless, and operational tasks quickly bore me. Previously, I had only been two to three years in the same place before I wanted to try something new. That tells you just how varied the tasks are here at SEAS-NVE, as I am still here, she says with a big smile.
As super user of the SAP system, Merete’s workday is often about getting a good grip of the various tasks and ensure that things work as they are supposed to.
To me, a good day at work is when I have made a difference, helped a colleague or implemented something which makes my colleagues’ workday easier.
Another thing, which is important to Merete, is the possibility to shape her own workday.
- There is no one checking whether I do this or that. I have the freedom to try things out, and this is fully understood and accepted. It is things like these that are part of our values here, and which really characterise our company.
