Are you prepared to take great personal responsibility? Will you risk taking on something you haven't done before? Do you want to be able to control and choose the direction of your personal development? In that case, you could go a long way with us, because the opportunities are unlimited - just read what some of the people who've started work at SWEP have to say:
I started working as Customer Support at our sales office in SWEP North America in October 2002 while I was studying at Mercer University Stetson School of Business & Economics (Atlanta, Georgia). It was intended to be only a temporary job while I attended college. However, after I graduated with my Bachelors of Business Administration degree, I was given the opportunity to move to Sweden to work at our headquarters. I jumped at the wonderful opportunity and worked in Sweden for close to 2 years as Customer Support for Strategic Key Accounts.
I have gained much information and experience from working both within a HUB setting and at Head Office that has helped me to understand SWEP from many different aspects. From quoting a customer and receiving their order, to keeping up with the production of the order until it ships out the door and arrives at our end customer's location. This level of involvement can be very time-consuming at times, but can also be very fulfilling. I want our customers to be delighted and completely satisfied with the level of service they receive from SWEP, so I have always strived to make that happen!
I have also worked with various projects in our World Class Service program. I think it is extremely helpful to be able to bring in the insight I have from dealing directly and personally with customers when we are exploring ways of improving the level of service that we provide in every area. It is extremely important not only to know the expectations and needs of the customer, but also to be able to meet them!
I now work within our Sales Organization in the UK as Regional Manager. I feel incredibly lucky to work for such a great company like SWEP!
While studying for my Master of Science degree in Computer Science at the BIT I did some spare-time project assignments for SWEP. The assignments got more and more interesting, and when I graduated in 2001 I accepted a job as web designer/systems developer in the Market Communication department.
After a while I was given greater responsibilities, and began doing systems integration with business systems and general development. Subsequently I became a Software Developer in the Software Development department. My work here continued and I became more and more knowledgeable about SWEP’s systems and software development in general.
As SWEP grew as a company, so did the scope of the tasks I was involved in, and I took the opportunity to accept a bigger challenge as Manager of our Software Architecture department. SWEP is a “Knowledge” company, and I have always felt that they have supported me by means of continued education, training and personal development. This is one of the things that make SWEP a great company: you can actively shape your future here, if you want to.
