Pille-Riin Riis, Quality Management Consultant
My path in FBS started over six years ago already when I joined the Global Corporate Sales and Customer Relations team. I feel like these fields sparked my interest in aviation and how everything works behind the scenes.
I found FBS because of my desire to travel to different places and meet new people, and what better company than a big airline to make some of my travelling dreams come true, whether for work or for leisure. I get to travel to our headquarters in Finland from time to time and meet our colleagues working there. Being a part of this company has made it easier for me to visit my friend in Switzerland, or to take my mother to London, a place she always dreamed of visiting.
In addition to travelling, I have a passion for working with people and creating a good environment for them to thrive and find their own paths. After a couple of years at FBS, I got the opportunity to work as a Team Lead. I also had the opportunity to build a new team from the ground up, which gave me great lessons on leadership, planning and wellbeing. I have now taken on even more responsibility as a Quality Management Consultant, working with several people and teams, not just my own. Because of this role I am discovering new traits in myself and seeing what else I am capable of.
I feel like the main things that brought and kept me in FBS have stayed the same all these years. I get to travel and discover interesting places and I have the best colleagues. I have had so many opportunities during these past six years to better myself, to find out what I’m capable of and how I can be a better colleague.
