postnord-stralfors-career-landing-page-1.jpg

The biggest challenge for most large companies is to use, prioritise and co-ordinate all of the opportunities for communication so that the whole business talks to its customers using one and the same language. When PostNord Stralfors communicates and focuses on the recipient, it always produces results – whether it’s direct marketing, invoices, the Internet, telemarketing, customer service, support or something else.

There are few – if any – companies that know as much as we do about different ways of communicating. We deliver communication solutions that make it possible.

PostNord Stralfors is the leading communication solutions company in the Nordic region, as well as being a strong operator in other key markets in Europe.

What tips do you have for students who are about to enter the workplace?

Many people translate challenges into problems and share their perception of these “problems” with younger people, asking for some kind of advice – never listen to those kinds of stories, try things yourself first of all, so that you create your own perception.

Marcus-Petersson-postnord-stralfors.jpg

What do you do in your job?

“I have a shared role – as both system administrator and team manager for system administrators & developers. As head of development and administration within PostNord Stralfors IT Sweden, I'm responsible for a group of employees in Ljungby.

We make sure that our IT systems, hardware and software, work as they should. Much of our day-to-day work involves resolving incidents, enhancing IT systems and receiving requests to develop new IT systems from customers and users, both internal and external. We're also working to phase out old IT systems that generate costs and extra work.”

What do you find interesting and challenging in your job?

“The great thing about my job is that we're constantly having to make sure we enhance the IT systems that the end user and the client use. Part of my work involves keeping up to date with new areas of IT that we need to be aware of, which means that you're always learning new things.

The challenge is to maintain an overall view and keep up with developments of new IT systems, and to constantly develop and enhance our systems so that production, end users and customers are always satisfied. While at the same time making sure that development and administration don't cost more than they should.“

Your career journey?

“I started in 2000 and spent seven years working in production in Ljungby. I seized the initiative myself a lot in production and always wanted to learn new things. Then I went on leave and started to study Systems Science at the School of Economics and Management in Lund for three years.

After graduating I started working on the production and programming of phone cards in Ljungby. I was then asked if I wanted to manage the IT systems in the card department in Ljungby, and since then I've managed more and more systems. I then started working as team leader, and I'm now team manager for system administration & development. We'll have to see what the next challenge will be.“

What's it like to be an employee at PostNord Stralfors?

“Wonderful. I've always been really happy at PostNord Stralfors and I can't imagine being happier anywhere else. Ljungby is our biggest production facility with a lot of employees – an environment in which I enjoy working.”

What's it like to work in a fast-moving company?

“As we live in a changing environment, the major challenge facing IT is to keep up with digital developments and constantly develop new systems. We can't always keep our old systems, but must adapt to the market. Change is a good thing, but at the same time stability is important, if you're going to do a good job. I enjoy working at a company that is changing, because it opens up new opportunities for tasks, jobs and new challanges.”
