Hannah: Internal auditor
For Hannah, a normal working day often begins the way vacation might for others: with a hotel breakfast. There she prepares for the day’s tasks, before driving to her assigned workplace, a warehouse located somewhere in Europe. As an internal auditor for Meyer Quick Service Logistics, Hannah makes a significant contribution to quality assurance at the company. After all, QSL controls all logistics processes for our Quick Service customers, from purchasing to storage and delivery to restaurants. In order to ensure that everything runs smoothly and that goods arrive at a customer’s sites with peak quality, QSL employees must strictly observe a number of guidelines regarding storage, packaging and transport. These include, for example, compliance with cold chain requirements for food as well as hygiene, occupational safety and data protection. Hannah’s daily work ensures that QSL complies with all important rules and regulations. “To do so, I travel to our sites and carry out so-called audits,” she says. “This way, I check whether we are implementing everything the way our customers expect us to. Basically, I am a coach. Through regular monitoring, I help all QSL employees learn to apply top quality standards and to become better overall.” And since QSL offices and warehouses are located across Europe, Hannah is “on the road” all year round. The fact that she is sometimes travelling for two weeks at a time is no problem for her. “I wanted an international job that would allow me to see something of the world. Every new country is a little adventure for me,” the auditor says with a laugh and adds, “Of course, it’s always about delivering quality work – every day and everywhere.
