"We don't just crunch the numbers, we are business partners."

Johannes T., Deputy Group Team Leader of controlling, good with numbers and active team player

Johannes T.

Is controlling a dry number-crunching job? Not a bit! Johannes knows what his job at CONTAINEX entails. His department doesn't just crunch numbers - in collaboration with management, it makes a vital contribution to the direction of the business.

If you attend a technical college for corporate governance and management, you're bound to be quite good with numbers. But Johannes has also been able to draw on many other skills from his studies and put them into practice at CONTAINEX.

"My job is so interesting because we don't just provide financial transparency, we also work with management on strategic development concepts."

In practise controlling at CONTAINEX doesn't just mean number crunching - it means being an essential and highly valued partner when it comes to operational areas. And beyond this, Johannes cites another important reason why graduates of technical colleges, Universities and commercial academies etc. should apply for a job here.

"Whether a degree course or a HAK diploma, what counts is your personal commitment."

Johannes' personal tip:

Anyone who wants to work in controlling should pay close attention to its rank within the respective company - whether it is restricted to number crunching or whether there is also a close partnership with business operations. I can promise you this - at WALTER GROUP, both are definitely the case.
