Current role: Manager
After technical studies at university, I joined Accenture to test my knowledge in a real business context. I was curious about how large and international companies in different industries really worked, without having to actually join them! That was back in 2006. Since then, I have grown from business consultant, over team lead in SAP projects, towards project management of the roll out of an international CRM project. I have worked in eight different countries around the world, for clients in the chemicals, consumer goods, telecom and transport industries. In addition to project work at clients, I’m also currently responsible for our internal Mobility domain. Wearing that hat, I work on recruiting, training, internships and asset building. I also spend some of my time following up our SAP sales strategy, including meetings with potential clients and preparing offers. But project delivery is still my favorite role… I like to stay close to my team and make sure everyone is satisfied and focused. So, perhaps like me you will join Accenture and discover that it is a lot more than you originally thought! Accenture is literally a world of opportunities for motivated people willing to grow their career at a fast pace. And the well-defined structure, procedures and methodology in all areas of the organization never get in the way of having fun working together.
Current role: Consultant
I joined Accenture in Spain, then after two years, transferred to our BeLux practice where I am currently based. I’ve always been a bit of an entrepreneur and Accenture is not only a great place to learn and work across all technologies, industries and even countries, but also to make your dreams reality. This has literally come true for me. When Accenture BeLux launched its first internal Innovation contest in 2012, the idea I submitted was identified as having potential. As one of the prizewinners, Accenture sponsored my enrollment in a four-month business accelerator program, where with Accenture’s support, both from a financial and knowledge point of view, I’m currently investing 100% of my time in finding the best way to move my idea from paper to a real, profitable business start-up. As part of the program, I have full access to all Accenture’s resources, which includes a global network of experts. They help me to challenge my idea and shape it further, from identifying potential clients and investors to product design and legal aspects. My story is a great example of how Accenture offers you plenty of room to try different things and find your ideal role in a dynamic environment where you are continuously challenged. Last but not least, I am passionate about getting more young women interested in Technology careers and Accenture has the same ambition, so give it a try!
