What do you like most in your job?

I have many creative possibilities and enjoy the success of improvements. The job is extremely varied and I can interact with many people inside and outside Cura. The theme “Cosmetics” inspires me for over already 20 years. 

 

The atmosphere at Cura…

The employees like and appreciate one another; we listen to and support each other in times of stress. The management is always appreciative, goal-oriented and gives constructive criticism. The work atmosphere at the company is perceived as particularly pleasant by several visitors. (“good vibrations”)

 

How important is humour in everyday working life to you?

I have a fairly dry to dark sense of humour, which my colleagues know well. With humours it is easier to overcome many situations.
