Reasons to Join

Sandra, Consultant

After working in the finance industry for over a decade and already gathering knowledge in the area of IT projects, it was clear to me where to head next. So when I started as a Senior Analyst at Sollers in mid 2020, I was looking forward to dive deeper into the world of IT and project management. My main assignment is at one of the biggest German insurers where I'm supporting the digital transformation.

What I probably appreciate most at Sollers is being surrounded by competent and motivated people. A lot of frequent knowledge exchange and the possibility to take active parts in projects helps you to grow steadily. And a transparent path of promotion let's you build your own career, supported by individual trainings sponsered by Sollers. Now, as a Consultant, I get the chance to take more responsibilities and grow even stronger.

Kinga, Consultant

In my 5-year career in Sollers, I've had the privilege of working in an environment with clear rules and guidelines. These well-defined parameters not only provide structure but also foster a sense of security and confidence in my abilities. This allows me to perform at my best and make informed decisions, which is crucial for personal and professional growth.

I'm fortunate to be part of an organization that values fairness and equality. This commitment to offering fair opportunities ensures that my hard work is consistently recognized and rewarded, and that advancement is based on merit of my work. I'm also surrounded by great colleagues who make teamwork not only effective but also immensely enjoyable.
