FINANCE & BUSINESS INTELLIGENCE.
The team is also responsible for ensuring that “Data First” (one of joblocal's key principles) is embedded in each process.
"WE’VE GOT AN INCREDIBLY STRONG TEAM SPIRIT"
HEAD OF FINANCE & BUSINESS INTELLIGENCE
MY STORYMy name is Robert and I am responsible for commercial management, the Business Intelligence department as well as company-wide processes. I actually wanted to set up my own business straight after finishing my studies, but didn't really know exactly what I wanted to do, before I initially joined joblocal as an “Entrepreneur in Residence” in order to learn the tools of the trade from the founders Dominic and Sebastian. This was back in March 2014. My original plan was to see how it went at joblocal for 6 months or so, but those 6 months have since turned into five years. The learning curve here has never flattened out during this period and, despite the various highs and lows, we have always continued in an upward trajectory. And my journey here at joblocal is still far from over, I’m enjoying being part of the success story here.
MY EVERYDAY TASKS AT JOBLOCALIf I had to explain to a child what my position at joblocal involved, I guess I'd have to say it involves making sure that we've all got something to eat and are also able to play a few games every now and then too ;-). Apart from all this fun, our actual priority is to develop our growth drivers and KPIs, which we keep track of in Excel and similar programs.
What helps me with these tasks is to have an openness towards new challenges, along with analytical skills, the ability to find solutions and communication skills.
MY ABSOLUTE HIGHLIGHTS WORKING FOR JOBLOCAL
For me personally, my highlights are undoubtedly at an interpersonal level. We've got an incredibly strong team spirit along with the motivation to successfully conquer even the most complex of projects. To this day, the sale of the business to Funke Mediengruppe and integration into the Group was of course a highlight as well as a really exciting challenge. joblocal is all about working in collaboration with people who have a real passion for their jobs. For me personally, joblocal is inspiring, challenging and modern.
WHAT´S LIKE WORKING
At lunchtime, I enjoy sitting out in the sunshine with my colleagues in Enzo’s Pastabar and really having a chance to switch off and relax. Then I have a quick game of table football with the rest of the team (and beat them as well :-) ), and that's pretty much the perfect day.
My colleagues will also appreciate the fact that I will give them 100% support, whatever the task or issue. You’ll also find that I’ll talk about things openly and won't be afraid to call a spade a spade if something isn't right. But I always follow the principle of “no shame, no blame”.
MY DREAM CAREER AND WHAT BECAME OF IT
When I was a child, my dream career wasn't quite what I’m doing now. But I never gave up my passion for innovation through the start-up environment and I’m pleased it's stayed that way.
WHO WOULD I REALLY LIKE TO SWAP JOBS WITH
I'd actually like to swap jobs with many different people as I find it a lot of fun gaining a deeper insight into matters. For example, Hannes' job in Performance Marketing is certainly exciting, but I’d also like to have a go in Sales as well. However I’m not entirely sure that would be all that ideal for joblocal ;-).
WHAT WOULD I SAY TO MY 16-YEAR-OLD SELF
Looking back, I'd say to myself that I don’t need to look at certain things quite so doggedly. If you do something that you like, success will come all by itself. Also, learning things by heart in school is one thing, but you will only become truly competent by understanding and doing and gaining a deeper insight into a particular subject.
