Aleksandra, Academy Program Manager – about work life, development, and motivation

This International Women’s Day we would like you to meet one of our many incredible and inspiring women at Global Wind Service. #IWD2022 #BreakTheBias

Aleksandra – or Ola as we call her, started her career in Global Wind Service in December 2016 when she joined us as Training Coordinator in our office in Szczecin, Poland.

Two years later she was appointed Training Team Lead and after two more years Ola was asked if she would like to be part of developing and building Global Wind Service Academy. That is where she is today, working as Program Manager at our Academy.

We have asked Ola about her job, career development and what drives and motivates her in her daily work:


What do you like most about your job?

“I like the fact that there is no “typical” working day. My work is spontaneous, unpredictable, and adventurous in the most positive way. We are always under development and aiming for progress. You are never bored when working at GWS and the possibilities for development are almost endless!”


You mentioned development – can you elaborate on that?

“Global Wind Service is a great place for people who are ambitious. I like working in a dynamic international environment where I can keep developing on both personal and professional level. The variety of tasks and positions within GWS is huge and provides a wide range of opportunities – everyone can find something suitable to keep them engaged and satisfied at work.”


For you, what makes Global Wind Service a good place to work?

Many things, but especially the two below:

Firstly - Flexibility – both when it comes to working conditions, hours, and place, but also in terms of approach as to how you do your job and solve your tasks.

Secondly – Trust – at the very beginning of employment we are granted trust by the management, and it is up to us if we are going to use it wisely. The superiors are not peeking over our shoulders administering every step we take. They trust us to do our best and if you need help you can always ask for assistance. In that way you can build your competences and gain confidence in work. Many companies have very much the opposite approach. 


What motivates and drives you in your daily work?

My biggest motivation is all the amazing people I work with on daily basis and challenging tasks we are assigned to accomplish together.
