What employer is the perfect match for me? Many applicants ask themselves this question when they are on the lookout for a new job. This is also what Jasmin Law experienced when she wanted to return to Germany in the year 2010. She had previously spent seven years working at a forwarding agency in Hong Kong. However, then Jasmin, a Chinese lady who was born in Hong Kong, was attracted back to Hamburg, where she had grown up and gone to school a long time ago.
One thing was certain for Jasmin before she relocated: she wanted to remain engaged in the logistics sector and in an international environment. In addition, she was really interested in a secure job: “Regular working hours are just as important to me as long-term professional career opportunities.” And she found exactly that at the Hamburg-based chemicals marketing company.
“HELM is a fixed star on the market firmament and a company steeped in a rich tradition with a corporate history going back over a hundred years,” says the forwarding agent by training in summing up. “My sister also told me that HELM had attractive social benefits to offer – from a favourably priced lunch in the Company’s own restaurant all the way through to a kindergarten. For me, being a mother, the latter also is an important aspect.”
She herself managed to gain a first impression of HELM during her job interview. “What was practical is that HELM also has a company location in Hong Kong, where the first personal interview took place.” With a permanent employment contract in her pocket, Jasmin was able to start a new life in Hamburg a little later.
In the business unit Derivatives, she has since been focusing on transport processing and settlement with international suppliers. “The order situation is good, we’re a well-coordinated team and I have an optimistic outlook about by professional future.”
Jasmin also considers it positive that long service anniversaries are quite frequent amongst her colleagues: “Some have been working here for several decades,” reports the logistics specialist. “That also speaks for HELM”.
