Working at CSCS since
- 1996-1999 Degree in Economics and Management, Höhere Wirtschaftsmittelschule, Bern
- 2006-2009 Dipl. Controllerin NDS HF, Swiss Federal Diploma, Schweizerisches Institut für Betriebsökonomie, Zürich
I am specialized in financial data business analysis, data monitoring for management reports and financial data planning. As Corporate Controller, I am acting as the interface between CSCS and the financial department in Zurich. One of my main tasks is to provide financial data reports to the leadership of the centre on a regular basis. Leading the planning process for the annual budget and medium-term strategy is one of the most intense and challenging tasks of my work at CSCS. This process is followed closely by our financial headquarters office at ETH Zurich. The yearly average budget I am managing amounts to CHF 53 Mio, including third party projects and external contractual collaborations.
Working at CSCS means to me
I am very proud to be able to contribute to a future-oriented institution in technology and research like CSCS. I appreciate the opportunity to work in the academic environment, which gives me the chance to perform on a very high educational level and the possibility to follow the latest trends in my activity field.
What I like most about my work
Even though my educational background is mainly based in the financial field, my work at CSCS requires a lot of communication and management skills as well. My language skills are needed to communicate with our head office in Zurich and also with the CSCS staff, making my daily activities diverse and unique. The international environment allows me to be surrounded by interesting people who exchange experiences from all over the world.
What challenges me at my work
My career at CSCS has been very challenging, as it has changed a lot in its dimension and in its activity field. The complexity of processes and rules in the financial sector has grown enormous-ly in the last few years. Because CSCS operates in a very specified field, our needs and require-ments are not always comparable to other activities in the public sector. This requires initiative and a good ability to collaborate closely with the Financial and Controlling Department in Zurich in order to find and integrate special business processes and to guarantee a correct and trans-parent performance in executing CSCS’s daily operational business. With the introduction of the new financial system at ETH Zurich within the framework of the project “Refine”, I developed and elaborated the new financial and organizational structure for CSCS in collaboration with the financial experts at the headquarters in Zurich.
