“I had the assumption that this would give great opportunities for an interesting career path and great learning. And I was not wrong…"
Charlotte Axelsen, Retail Marketing Manager
At Bosch Denmark, Charlotte has many different tasks. Some are project oriented and others include travelling to other countries. This diversity is why she enjoys working for the Bosch group.
Some years after completing her studies at Copenhagen Business School, Charlotte found her job at Bosch via Jobindex. She was fascinated by the international working environment, and this motivated her to apply. Today, her department includes 12 colleagues in Ballerup, and more in Norway, Sweden and Finland. This international diversity is exactly why she likes to work for Robert Bosch A/S.
Charlotte’s daily work involves many different tasks. She likes this diversity, describing them as “some that require entrepreneurial skills and some that are more routine tasks”. The flexibility and freedom with regard to time management is another aspect of her work that she finds beneficial. Her work leaves her enough time that she can devote to her family, sports and her cards-playing club.
From her very first weeks at work, Charlotte has a distinct memory of the shared pride of being part of the Bosch family, and of how friendly and helpful everyone was. When Charlotte started her job, it was the dimensions of the Bosch Group and the resulting process that she found most challenging. Because of its size, there was “a whole language” of abbreviations to learn. “It takes time to get an understanding of the business, and, in the beginning, this is challenging. But, somehow you get there.”
Having overcome the initial challenge, she then had to learn to navigate a diverse environment with many different opinions and priorities. This involved learning how to analyse and steer the business, enhancing her communication skills, and much more.
Today, her biggest challenge is prioritising her focus and energy, due to the many tasks and involvement opportunities that Bosch Nordic offers. Bosch cares about its employees’ personal development, which partly involves the provision of many types of staff training. The atmosphere is relaxed, friendly and professional. “In the next couple of years, I see myself developing further in my current position and area of business, and after that, only time will tell.” If your dream job involves challenges, a diverse environment and international colleagues, then this is your chance!
Be remarkable and keep updated with upcoming opportunities at Bosch.
