What can a new Senior Fund Administrator look forward to as part of your team?
We’re a really close team with an open and friendly culture. Luxembourg is known for its multicultural workforce and we have around 15 different nationalities within our team alone. This helps bond us together even more closely, as most of us are living away from our home countries and families, so actually we become more like a big family together. What makes our team extra special in my eyes is that we all share a desire to go the extra mile to provide the very best service for our private equity clients, and can rely on each other’s support in order to deliver this. We have fun together too – whether it’s drinks and a meal after work, a treasure hunt, a trip to the Escape Rooms or a night out at the Christmas markets, our regular social events allow us to relax together and build genuine friendships across the team.
What festive fun and games do you have planned for your team this year?
Christmas is one of my favourite times at Aztec because we really take time to celebrate properly! Our decorations go up around the office at the beginning of December, and we have a competition for the best decorated team tree. There’s our team evening out at the Christmas markets, and I’m looking forward to enjoying glühwein and other sweet, festive treats and just soaking up that Christmassy atmosphere. Then there’s the Aztec Christmas party which has an aprés-ski theme this year which is pretty cool! Our senior team love to surprise us all with extra treats at Christmas too – this year we have just found out that we are all being given 27th of December as a bonus holiday, which is amazing!
What makes Aztec a special place to work?
For me it’s the culture. There’s a unique balance between working hard and having a shared dedication to providing excellence to our clients, whilst also being very social together and just enjoying each other’s company. It’s also a brilliant place to work if you are serious about developing your career, as our training programme, delivered by the Aztec Academy, is second to none, and professional development is hugely promoted and celebrated – we even have two rounds of promotions each year. If you’re dedicated and ambitious, there are always opportunities to progress.
What’s the best part of your job?
I really enjoy managing and mentoring my team, and l get satisfaction from helping support their development and seeing them progress in their careers. That’s very rewarding for me.
How would your team describe you?
As a leader, I aim to always be there for my team whenever they need my support or advice, so I hope they would describe me as reliable and supportive. I’m also very ambitious, and never give up on a challenge!
Monica’s Christmas – Quickfire
What gets you in the festive mood?
It has to be the festive lights and the Christmas Market. The scent of oranges is also a really nostalgic Christmas smell for me and takes me back to magical childhood Christmases.
What are you hoping to find in your Christmas stocking this year (other than a Senior Fund Administrator!)?
A nice trip somewhere warm, if my husband reads this, hint hint!
Brussels Sprouts – yay or nay?
I love them!
Snow – yay or nay?
Definitely yay. I’m from Romania so we always had lots of snow. The downside is that it makes travel difficult, but I still wouldn’t be without it.
