Job Fair Series: The Experian Way
In the time leading up to the 25th Job Fair at AUBG we will introduce to some of the biggest companies to come to campus April 4. Experian is a global leader in consumer and business credit reporting and marketing services. The company employs more than 17,000 people in 37 countries.
At Experian we believe data has the power to transform lives and societies for the better. The sheer amount of data and information available today might seem overwhelming. However, we’re making sense of it in powerful new ways. We’re gathering, analyzing, combining and processing data to help our customers take financial control and achieve their goals. Every day, our data and analytics are helping people and businesses achieve more, individuals access the financial services they need, people protect their identities and lives, and economies and societies flourish.
Our business is unique not only for Bulgaria, but also on a global scale. That is why we have been named as one of the most innovative companies by Forbes for the fourth consecutive year. Under one roof at our Bulgarian office, we have over 40 different teams and we are one of the four strategic Global Delivery Centers of Experian worldwide. The complexity of our business gives us the opportunity to take on a new challenge literally every day – yes, it is a cliché saying that no day is the same, but that’s our reality.
It is our employees though that are at the heart of Experian. No wonder why if you ask any of the Experian people what do they like best about the company the answer will most likely be “my colleagues”. Our aim is to find not only the people with the right experience, but also individuals who will fit into our team and culture, who are not afraid to change the status quo. Having the needed technical skills and experience is important for us but they are simply not enough if they are not paired up with the Experian personality and attitude.
We also believe that a well-defined career path along with the right support to everyone’s career progression is the key to success. We are focused on providing the right means so that everyone can achieve her/his career goals – courses, mentorship, or whatever is needed for the person to grow. Part of our company DNA is to learn from one another and we have a strong tradition of senior professionals sharing their knowledge and experience with the junior colleagues and supporting them on their career path.
Moreover, we are committed to making our society better – with the help of our internal CSR committee we support large number of social responsibility initiatives – from trees planting to mentorship of children deprived of parental care. All our socially responsible colleagues are eligible to receive up to 3 more days off per year to devote to volunteering.
Our plan for the future? Unlock the power of data for more and more customers and help them take the right decisions. We imagine doing that by innovating, inspiring, learning and growing together with both our employees and clients.
