Sarah, Team Leader, Germany

My name is Sarah and I have been with UPM for 7 years. Currently, I work as a Team Leader in Cross SBU Supply – Magazine, Merchants and Office. I take responsibility for all containers planned for Nordland and Kymi mill, as well as Short Sea and Pre-Transportation.

There are no typical days in my work. Generally speaking, I lead my teams by fulfilling UPMs strategy and incorporating UPMs values into our daily work. These values are important to my on a personal level as well. My tasks include ensuring my teams are engaged to do their tasks as well as ensuring they have all they need to become experts in their areas (e.g. provide trainings, etc.).

The best part of working for UPM is the diversity, career opportunities and internationality it offers. I enjoy working with colleagues from all over the world. Furthermore, the challenging and changing environment of paper industry keeps things interesting.
