More about Marta
What is the most rewarding part of your job?
The most rewarding part of my job is being able to take an active part in improving treatment methods and improving patients’ quality of life.
How have you personally developed with the organization?
I am a nurse by education and have worked in the profession since 2005. I started my career at AES in 2018 as a clinical nurse, which was a new experience for me. For over two years, I gained experience and took part in the numerous trainings offered by the company. The support I received, the time given for learning, and my supervisor’s openness to new ideas allowed for significant personal development. Starting in 2019, I coordinated the nursing team, which allowed me to gain my first experience in human resource management. In 2021, I decided to take up another challenge in the company, applying for the position of site manager in Częstochowa.
What makes you happy to be part of AES?
My work is my passion. Another very important factor is the work culture I found in this company. From the very beginning of my work at AES, the people I met gave me a sense of support and established an atmosphere of mutual respect. Joining AES also opened the possibility for me to take the site manager position in Czestochowa, where we also try to build a friendly atmosphere together with the team, which also gives me great satisfaction.
How does working at AES help you maintain a work-life balance?
Until now, working as a nurse, I had busy weekends, holidays and night shifts. Since I moved to AES, I have been able to work eight hours a day without having to work in the afternoons / nights / weekends. This allowed for the systematization of my private life and planning time with the family, but most of all, spending such important moments as holidays together.
For me, clinical research is a highly specialized field of medicine that develops very dynamically. Looking for new challenges and wanting to constantly develop my skills, I decided to get involved in clinical trials. Another important aspect is the sense of real influence on the development of medicine.
