Living in Poland was never part of my plans – that was a life changing step, full of new adventures and experiences.
A friend of mine started to work for Accenture and told me about a new role in his team. Getting a good job opportunity right after graduation was not that easy back home, so I decided to send my application. A month later I was living in Warsaw, working as a Junior Accountant with Portuguese. Currently, I am the Accounts Payable Team Lead. I am constantly learning in my job – meeting people from other cultures allows me to see things from new perspectives.
My team has always been very international – made up of people who decided to move to Poland, just like me. It really helps a lot, when there is someone you can relate to. A constantly changing environment like ours requires you to quickly adapt to new challenges. In my team, we always try to come up with new ideas on how to improve and automate our processes.
The fact that Accenture works with clients from so many different backgrounds allows us to see a bigger picture. Looking back, I am extremely happy that I took this chance, I can now call Poland my home.
