„Thanks to an individual working time model, I can manage both: my job and my family.“
Anita Hölscher-Sträßer has been working for AMOVA since 2002. First as a technical draftswoman, now as a part-time design engineer.
AMOVA generally supports the idea that work and family life can be well combined. For me personally this works best with a flexitime model. This allows me to organize my work in a way that suits me best. In addition, my employer gives me some leeway in terms of my weekly hours. And my colleagues and superiors also support me with a great deal of understanding and helpfulness. This is how I even managed to complete a four-year further training course alongside my job and family to become a certified technician!
My work focuses on the detailed design of products and components from which machines or plants are then manufactured. In the design phase, teamwork and communication skills play a particularly important role. I am in regular contact with colleagues from various technical areas, such as the statics and electrical departments, in order to obtain all the information I need for my PC-based design work. This enables me to create numerous drawings and parts lists, on the basis of which the assemblies and machines are finally manufactured. I think it is great that my work is very diversified, since the products always vary according to customer requirements. It never gets boring!
