Mitarbeiterin bei WeWire

Interview China in the morning, Mexico in the evening

After five years in Switzerland, Claudia Wahl returned to her old hometown - and joined the Coroplast Group in December 2018. As a strategic buyer for WeWire, the 32-year-old is responsible for the product groups contacts, housings, seals and fastening materials. She travels the world a lot and works on the fine-tuning of strategies to make purchasing more efficient and cost-effective.

How was your application process? 

After I had sent my application documents by e-mail, I was quickly contacted by the HR department to arrange an appointment for an interview. Then everything went quickly and very structured. I had two interviews within a month and finally held the contract in my hands. 

 

Why did you decide to take this job? 

What I find very interesting about the Coroplast Group is its international positioning as a family business from Wuppertal. The job description also matched my profile very well. Ultimately, however, it was the good discussions and the positive feedback that were the factors in my decision to take this job. 

 

What does your typical working day look like? 

Very simplified: in the morning arrangements with China, at noon with suppliers and in the late afternoon with Mexico. In between, I discuss topics with suppliers such as cost optimization, new concepts or development potential in person – or I visit the production facilities on site. This gives me a good overview of the market situation and the strategic directions I can pursue in the individual product groups. 

 

What is so great about your job? 

I get to meet a lot of new people, both internally and externally, and from all kinds of different countries. So it's not a typical office job, because I'm on the road a lot - and so I'm constantly learning new things. 

 

What challenges does your job bring with it? 

The challenges lie in the day-to-day work. I have to adapt flexibly to new tasks and act in a solution-oriented manner in order to master the operative day-to-day business. At the same time, however, I have to work on strategic goals, maintain good supplier relationships and identify new opportunities for the product group. 

 

What makes your team special? 

We laugh a lot and have great professional discussions, so we learn a lot from each other and support each other. 

 

Why does your employer suit you? 

WeWire suits me because my tasks challenge and encourage me. I am happy to be part of a great team and an internationally successful family business from Wuppertal.
