What is your workday like at Lumera?
I am working from home, which means no travel time and no traffic jams. Before I start a grab a cup of coffee and then check my agenda for the day.
My day consists of consultations with our clients. I manage several funds and am involved in a couple of (implementation) projects. I also have many internal meetings with my colleagues about how can serve our client in the best way.
I am usually at our office (HQ) in Utrecht for 1 day in a week. There I have meetings, but also the social aspect is an important part of the day. And once a month we have our employee’s day at the office, and everyone is present.
What is the most developmental aspect of your job?
The fun part of my job is the contact with people, both clients and colleagues. And to work together towards the required result. That brings sometimes challenges because the pension matter in the Netherlands is pretty complex.
I also enjoy spreading all the knowledge within our company through knowledge sessions. These knowledge sessions are given by colleagues and ensures that everyone stays up to date on specific subjects.
How would you describe Lumera as a workplace in just a few words?
Working at Lumera is energizing because you are responsible for your own work. 'Work hard, play hard' is what they say and that's true at Lumera.
Even though we work from home a lot, Lumera is really a team. Although colleagues are far away, they are always there for you and to help each other.
What do you do when you are not working at Lumera?
Because I work from home, I also like to take a walk in between. Then I walk towards Kinderdijk (Unesco World Heritage). I am a big fan of football and cycling, both passively and actively. I am also involved in the local football club where I give training by 2 teams. And I am a proud father of 3 children, I also enjoy going out with the family. And to end the day a good drink with tasty snacks and a cold beer.
