Welcome as a new Office Assistant, Jara Ibañez!

06.01.2019

Office assistant positions can be found in all sectors and have a broad spectrum of skills. They are sometimes referred to as secretaries or administrative assistants, but what they actually do is help make an office work. The tasks are very different, often based on the specialisations they have, how much professional experience they possess and what career aspirations they have. This also goes for Jara Ibañez, who joined TSCNET Services as an Office Assistant within the Corporate Services unit at the end of 2018.

The 30-year-old Spanish has successfully completed a vocational training in administration and finance. She grew up in San Sebastián in the north of the country and lived on the Spanish Mediterranean coast before moving to Munich in autumn 2017. In the course of her life, however, she has already travelled to 17 countries. “They all taught me something lasting and revealed a part of their culture to me,” says Jara. Besides travelling and exploring new countries, sport is her most important leisure activity. “Sport is the best way for me to get away from the daily routines,” she explains.

For a total of five years, Jara worked for a manufacturer of dance- and sportswear in administration and customer service. Then she felt a need for change and professional growth, exploring a new culture and challenging herself. At TSCNET, she mainly supports in administrative and financial work. She is particularly attracted by the interesting industry with its advanced technologies and the company with its team spirit and great potential for personal and professional development. “I felt the warm and dynamic environment right away during my interview,” says Jara, “and that proved to be true during the first few weeks here.”

Power supply for Team Operations – welcome, Ana!

19.12.2017

Apart from being the biggest team at TSCNET Services, Team Operations is also the fastest growing one. Living up to its dynamic reputation, the team has welcomed a new member: Ana Veselinović. Ana started her carrier at the Serbian transmission system operator (TSO), Elektromreza Srbije, right after she had finished her bachelor studies at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering of the University of Belgrade, the capital and largest city of Serbia. During her first year of working in the market division as an administrator of electricity market, she also continued and finished her master studies.

After two and a half years Ana decided to focus her carrier on grid operation and system analysis, so she changed into the Department for system dynamics and studies at the TSO’s System Operation Division. There she was also charged with doing N-1 steady state analysis. “Throughout my career, starting from my studies till this day, I was focused on the transmission system, especially on security and reliability,” says Ana. “Nowadays, with the increasing renewable sources of energy, the security of the grid is one of the biggest challenges – and a great opportunity for people working in the power grid sector.”

Ana is profoundly convinced that TSCNET Services is the best place to attain more knowledge and to work on the pulse of system security and reliability. “I am happy that I’m in a team of experts to learn from and to improve my skills”, says Ana. “This job with its many aspects and new experiences is really a complex one – but it’s no problem if you love it, if you are ready to learn, and if you’re a part of a strong team.” Seeing Ana’s enthusiasm and team spirit, we are sure that we have just welcomed another powerful addition to our staff!

Old environment with new horizons – change of job within TSCNET

02.03.2017

No matter how interesting and exciting a job is, sooner or later every employee may feel the lure of a change in profession or may just fancy a new challenge. That may mean leaving the old workplace behind in search of a new, professional “promised land”, while also learning new skills along the way. It’s an opportunity for a qualified and experienced employee – but a great loss to the company. On this view, TSCNET Services offers and promotes a different solution: Change your job without changing your employer.

This is what Tin Bobetko did: In 2015, he had started as an Operator within TSCNET’s Operations team, coming from TSC member HOPS, the Croatian transmission system operator (TSO). As of now, he works as Business Implementation Manager in the Business Development team. With his eight years experience in Power System Engineering, he is responsible for the development and implementation of new tools, processes, products, and technologies to boost the services TSCNET provides to its customers. “Throughout my working career, I’ve always been enthusiastic about projects that required a lot of teamwork and offered the possibility to acquire new competencies and to evolve in various areas,” Tin says. This attitude is highly valued by the head of his new team, Mario Princip: “Tin joins us at an enthralling and challenging time, and both his vast experience and his urge for knowledge will help get a strong tailwind in our sails.” For a ship on its course to new destinations, that sounds like a most promising start.

Operator positions opened to external applicants

27.02.2017

Internal recruitment has some advantages: Employees from within an organisation understand your business and your culture before assuming the new position. That especially pertains to highly specialised jobs. Thats why positions as Operator at TSCNET Services had been restricted to internal applicants from one of the TSC member transmission system operators (TSOs) with a strong knowledge of our processes and methodologies. For the first time, the company now deviates from this principle to find enough qualified candidates.

Today, TSCNET issued a press release to announce that the application process for Operators has been opened up to external applicants to be able to fill positions. This is a key role within our growing multinational team. The working language is English. Full details can be found on our website.

Inspired by “Science of Control” – new IT Application Manager

22.02.2017

A strength of working together as a team is that each team member brings with them different knowledge, strengths and ideas. Tetiana Voloshyna has been hired as IT Application Manager within TSCNET’s IT Services and Development team. Amongst other skills, she adds a master’s degree and doctoral studies in: Economic Cybernetics. Sounds interesting – but what does that do for power transmission grid security? A whole lot! If you ask Wikipedia, cybernetics is “a transdisciplinary approach for exploring regulatory systems” and is used as a term to imply “control of any system using technology”. Plus doing that economically, meaning: using little money, time, etc. Bull’s eye! That’s exactly how one could describe what our customers and we at TSCNET Services are working for.

Tetiana was born and raised in Ukraine, and has built her career on working as a system analyst in a bank project, implementing a Teradata Data Warehouse appliance as a database analyst, and performing analytical and architectural IT duties in energy projects in Ukraine and the Netherlands in the past two years. “I am highly confident that the combination of Tetiana’s strong IT background with business knowledge will bring added value to our company and our customers,” says Cristian Bordeanu, Head of the IT Services and Development team.

Tetiana herself is enthusiastic about her new role which opens the door to different projects for the energy system in all of continental Europe. “I consider this position another step in my chain of roles carrying more and more responsibility”, she says. “I am very passionate about the work I do and I want to be really proud of the results,” Tetiana adds. The “Science of Control” paves the way greatly.
