Temporary position that turned into a trump card

Lotta Thiel

Supply Chain Coordinator

Vikariatet blev en riktig vinstlott

No question is too big or too small for Lotta Thiel, a supply chain coordinator at Tamro. Lotta has a long history at Tamro and knows how the flow of goods and information works between Tamro and its customers. And anything she doesn't know she can easily find out from her extensive network. Lotta began her career at Tamro as a temp – which was to prove a real trump card.

I have a background as a pharmaceutical technician and ended up at Tamro by chance. The first six months I was temping in customer service and then things just snowballed from there. For the past 15 years I've worked as a supply chain coordinator, and have recently been acting as a link between Tamro and Apoteket AB. An important part of our collaboration is to adjust our flows to match their special offers.

The best part of the job is my colleagues. Everyone shares their knowledge and expertise rather than keeping it to themselves. It's important that there's always someone to ask if I'm to do my job. What's more, I like working with people with a good sense of humour, and that really is the case here at Tamro.

Not long ago, I was talking to the customer service manager who employed me all those years ago. It was fun to see how that temping job turned into a trump card.

Not only did I end up at a company where I'm really happy – I also met my husband here!
