What fascinates you about your work?
I find my work extremely exciting. The variety in particular is very rewarding: one minute I’m at my desk working on reports or concepts, and the next I’m at the construction site having a technical discussion with the machine operators.
What is different about working at Basler & Hofmann?
At Basler & Hofmann, I work in a very human and competent environment that allows me to manage my projects and maintain a good work-life balance. I also have highly professional equipment at my disposal.
