Crosslinks

Our Crosslinks project is aimed at merging statutory and management consolidation and reporting as well as some specific business unit management reporting for the Dixons Carphone Group. The estimated duration of the project is twelve months and six of us from Brno SSC have been given the opportunity to be a part of the Crosslinks team in Carphone Warehouse headquarters in Acton, London.

So we packed our bags and moved to London in early November. The company picked an amazing place for us to live. All we had to do was assemble the furniture, which was a true teambuilding exercise. The house is situated in a very nice neighbourhood and it is just one stop by tube to the office.

When we first arrived at the Carphone Warehouse headquarters we were simply amazed. The building used to be an actual warehouse in the past so you can imagine its size. The architects have done a great job though to turn it into a cosy, modern and practical open space office. It currently houses 2,5 thousand people, it is very multicultural, and also noisy and busy, but in a good way. It has got its own canteen, gym and Starbucks coffee shop. What is more, there is a Carphone Warehouse branded shop inside where you can buy anything you can get in any other Carphone store.

On our arrival, we received a very warm welcome from all of our local colleagues and their approach towards us remains very supportive. During the first week we were provided with exhaustive training on Oracle Hyperion Financial Management, Financial Data Quality Management and Smartview softwares. It was all very new to us, but we found out that our ACCA background is going to be useful over here.

 

We feel very grateful for this great opportunity and amazing work and life experience. We all hope we will not let anybody down and will fulfil all the high expectations placed in us. Cheers!
