Curious to know what it is like to work at Arelion? Meet some of our excellent people.
I work as a Delivery Manager at Arelion in Paris. My career journey at Arelion has been enriching, challenging and fun! I have been able to enhance my project management skills by participating in a number of interesting projects.
The best thing about my job is to experience a customer’s delight after his or her service has been delivered. I would describe the work environment at Arelion as caring, serious but playful. I am trusted to engage in decision making processes and feel empowered every day to do my job right.
One of the best things with Arelion is that we are culturally rich. I admire that we are widely spread geographically but still tightly connected humanly. Communication is fluid. If I would describe the work environment with one word it would be 'Synergetic'.
I would like to continue growing alongside Arelion in our rapidly evolving world. I have chosen my Ally, have you?
I started working at Arelion in 2012. I feel my biggest development, professionally, has to be in working on a global scale. Prior to joining Arelion, much of my focus had been service delivery within a particular region in the US, mostly in the Washington DC area where I am based. It was incredibly eye opening to shift focus from regional to global deliveries that can be all the way from New York to Singapore.
It has been quite the learning experience to work with customers (and colleagues) from different countries and cultures; I very much enjoy the chance to do so.
I feel I do well in the project management field as I am a detail-orientated individual. What I enjoy about being a Delivery Project Manager is that no two projects are exactly alike. There is always something different which means there is always opportunity to learn something new.(...)
In addition to being detail orientated, I also like to see myself a flexible person. I have found this has become quite critical in maintaining a work-life balance as I’ve recently become a first time parent. Even though I like to have a general plan or at least an idea of how my day will flow, I’ve quickly learned that being a parent and having a young child can quickly throw any plan out the window at any given moment. The ability to be flexible to accept these changes can help me stay comfortable and better manage.
Recently, I was able to help with an after-hours customer maintenance remotely from home which allowed me to spend time with my family while conducting business. The success of the customer maintenance would have not been possible without the support of my family and coworkers.
Joining Arelion in 2014 was a new adventure for me. I had worked in the Asian telecom industry for many years but wasn’t familiar with the company until I saw an account manager vacancy. The opportunity to take on regional responsibility together with a global perspective was too good to miss. This was an entirely new experience for me - the company, culture, and people, but I decided to give it a chance. If you never try something, you might miss a great opportunity and today, eight years later, I know I made the right decision.
In my role as Account Manager, I´m the bridge between the customer and the company. Being there for our customers is at the heart of my role. I need to understand how Arelion´s strengths align with specific customer needs to be able to recommend the best solution. Being the bridge builds credibility and trust, which is key for long-term relationships. I love the versatility of my role - I get to connect with customers from many different countries and cultures, all the way from Hong Kong, China and South Korea to Taiwan and Mongolia.
