At the pulse of energy transition – working students at TSCNET

13.11.2018

With 15 universities such as the famous Ludwig-Maximilians-University or the renowned Technical University, Munich is one of the most important educational metropolises in Europe with more than 120,000 students. On the other hand, we at TSCNET Services have to be creative in order to cover our need for additional manpower as a fast-growing company in the booming Munich area. There it seems to make sense to hire working students: We gain highly motivated, fresh employees, and the students gain important insights into practice and can earn part of the cost of their education.

We currently employ a total of four working students. The working hours are agreed individually with the respective manager, taking into account their lecture schedule, and amount to a maximum of 20 hours per week. The working students are almost completely involved in our day-to-day business and support us in administrative, operational or strategic tasks as well as in ongoing projects.

One of our latest additions is Maria Krutikova, a 27-year-old Russian who is doing her “Master of Consumer Affairs, Innovation and Technology” at the TUM School of Management. She already has a Bachelor and a Master in Sociology from the Novosibirsk State University and also has some experience as an IT project manager in the development of iOS, Android and web applications. Only one weakness cannot be overlooked: Although she was born and raised in Siberia, she is always the first to be cold. But she also has a suitable answer: “Siberian is not the one who is not feeling cold, Siberian is the one who is properly dressed depending on the weather!”

The only 23-year-old Nadine Seitler from Bavaria already has a bachelor’s degree in business psychology with a focus on work and organisational psychology and is currently studying business psychology with a focus on leadership and change management in her second master’s semester. The best prerequisites for working in the human resources department of TSCNET Services. The spectrum ranges from recruiting to onboarding and personal development, e.g. through offers from the TSCNET Academy, to the maintenance of personnel files.

Nadine chose our company because it allows her to get to know a completely new industry and at the same time to expand her existing skills and experience in the HR area. She thus embodies the basic idea of working as a working student: Gaining “real-word” experience toward your future alongside your studies. If you or a student you know wants to follow Nadine’s example: Exciting tasks and projects at TSCNET Services are waiting for further candidates, and the benefits are greater than the amount of the paycheck!

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.
