Anja: I have the freedom to be independent

 

About Anja

At work, Anja prefers to sit at her desk in the corner and do her work alone and in silence. She likes things orderly and finds it hard to deal with changes and unpredictability. She is diagnosed with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), which are 'invisible' disorders that almost prevented her from finishing her vocational training for adults in industrial engineering.

The job suits me perfectly because I can organise the tasks myself and take on responsibility. I can use my ADHD in my job to detect possible errors in products that other employees may not find.

What she does

Anja has now been working for more than 11 years assembling pump strains to be used as spare parts. "The job suits me perfectly because I can organise the tasks myself and take on responsibility. I can use my ADHD in my job to detect possible errors in products that other employees may not find." she explains.

Anja is employed in a job for persons with a reduced work capacity of more than 50%. The job requirements are individually tailored to her needs. She works at the Spare Parts Production, a self-manufacturing plant which has its own goods receipt and shipment. In collaboration with our dedicated colleagues in the flex department, Anja contributes to manual production.
