Her daily job consists of providing financial support to the organization by managing accounts payable and receivable. For example, she processes, verifies and reconciles invoices and ensures proper posting before entering invoices into the accounting system. In addition, she manages travel and expense invoices.
– “I like that my work description is flexible and I get to plan the contents of my days myself as long as things are taken care of in time.”
Maria graduated from Tampere University of Applied Sciences as a Bachelor of Business Administration. She is eager to develop her skills constantly. – “In financial management, it’s important to be up to date because for example tax related things may change yearly.”
Maria’s strengths lie in learning and understanding things profoundly. – “Usually I pick essential things from my everyday workload and then I dig deep and try to learn from them as much as I can. I want to understand the big picture in everything I do and for me, it’s important to know why things are or aren’t done in a certain way. Sometimes the result can be a more lean and fluid chain of actions, for example by eliminating unnecessary work phases. My way of taking the observers’ role makes it easy for me to see things from multiple angles. I think this is also one of my strengths I can make great use of as the health and safety representative.”
