Compensation & Benefits Manager
For me, working at Smurfit Kappa means coming to work every day to an exciting, diverse and challenging environment.
What I am currently working on:
I have two hats: I am in charge of all of the HR aspects of the Paris Headquarters and am also the Compensation & Benefits Manager for Europe. This combined role enables me to deal with a variety of HR subjects which I enjoy.
As HR Manager in Paris I take care of middle management recruitment, work contracts, the training needs of employees and any other HR related matters.
On the European side, one of my main focusses is to provide guidance and assistance with Expatriate packages as well as internal and external compensation benchmarking. I work closely with the Head of HR of each of our European divisions and with the country HR Directors when necessary.
My most rewarding experience at Smurfit Kappa:
To have managers who have always encouraged me to think outside of the box and to take initiatives has certainly been the most rewarding thing for me. This has helped me grow continuously and given me the ability to push myself further.
What does one working week look like?
I do not really have a standard working week as my schedule can change according to the various projects, issues or priorities I am working on. This has taught me to be flexible and to adjust my tasks according to the company's business needs.
