“It’s really cool that the management are so accommodating, so young people also have the opportunity to show their worth. I started as a trainee and now four years later, I’m dealing with one of our biggest customers. It proves to me that Schou provides people with opportunity and responsibility if they dare take it.”
After a period spent at the office in China, Jacob is now based at the main office, working in the purchasing and sale of garden furniture. He emphasises that in particular, his sense for order and detailed follow-up are important features of his position. Jackob is also passionate about excellent tradesmanship; the purchasing and selling of a product while at the same time taking currency changes and the global economy into consideration is a demanding and exciting discipline.
He also enjoys the very special atmosphere that characterises Schou.
“Schou is a really exciting company, where there is space to have some fun. There is freedom to develop, and throughout the company I’m surrounded by terrific colleagues. It’s a unique atmosphere, you won’t find in many other places.”
