Fast learning took Minna to a new direction
Minna Nieminen, recruiting coordinator
Minna’s career at Transval began in 2013, in Vindea’s packaging service office. In summer 2014, Transval acquired Vindea’s share capital, and in October 2014 Minna became a Transval employee while still working in the same job. At the time, Minna’s job consisted of writing up packing lists, invoicing, printing out dispatch notes etc.
At the end of 2015, Minna was transferred to the Transval main office in Jussla and began working as a recruitment assistant. She spent a year getting acquainted with recruiting practices, and quickly found her place in the fast-paced recruitment team – and by the end of 2016, Minna became a recruiting coordinator. Today, her work includes all recruitment-related tasks from the creation of job advertisements to interviews and the management of employment contracts. In addition to recruitment, she also does a wide variety of office and customer service work, so her days are quite varied.
“It has felt great to learn new things; especially recruiting is a new area for me. And since I have worked in different units and positions within the Group, I have learned to know both the people and the business from several perspectives. I’ve started to feel at home here quite quickly.”
According to Minna, the most rewarding part about recruiting is when she finds the perfect employee for a unit and receives positive feedback from the supervisors.
“The best things about working at Transval are definitely the awesome colleagues and the chance to broaden my horizons.”
