Silvio – Account manager and part-time student
"I work as an account manager in the chemicals unit, where I look after key accounts from the initial enquiry right through to invoicing. This involves developing new transport concepts, preparing offers and advising my customers on all aspects of their transports. Of course, I also work closely with my colleagues at DB Cargo BTT and DB Cargo.
I started as a junior with DB Cargo BTT a few years ago after qualifying from a vocational training programme in business. With the help of my new employer, I then successfully completed my Chamber of Commerce and Industry programme in business administration alongside my job.
What I like about my role is that there are always new tasks and it's a flexible place to work. I'm also proud that I've been able to grow my customer relationships so well. The company gives me plenty of freedom and my managers trust me. And thanks to flexible arrangements on working hours and location, I can shape my work-life balance to give me time for my hobbies."
