Hello! My name is Josefine and every Thursday I cook lunch for 12 to 15 people at KONUX. I was born in Munich (75 years ago) and have lived here ever since. I have a daughter and a granddaughter. In my professional life, I worked in human resources, most recently in a consulting capacity with a focus on labor law.
As a retiree, I was looking for a job with an activity that I enjoy. Initially, I found this in a senior citizens’ bakery. When KONUX asked for a cooking grandma, I applied immediately, since cooking is my greatest passion, even before baking. After 1x trial cooking I had my dream job.
When I started at KONUX in July 2018, there were about 35 employees. Since then, the company has grown a lot and not many of my colleagues from back then are still on board. I am proud to still be part of the team.
There are two things in particular. First, there are now many more vegetarians and vegans on the team. I want to cook a healthy lunch for them, too. Especially vegan dishes are not so many in my repertoire, because I want to cook without substitute products, "honest vegan" so to say. For this, I am busy collecting recipes. The second is that I want to address my guests by their name. Remembering the (often foreign) names and matching them to the right face is a big challenge for me.
I enjoy a very high level of trust. That’s why I can work completely independently and make the appropriate decisions. I don’t get any instructions, at most, wishes are expressed 😉
I am highly valued by all people at KONUX, starting at the top level. I get help when I need it and I am pampered with cappuccino and everything I want. They are at all times concerned that I am doing well. I am very grateful for this loving and respectful treatment.
Every Thursday is the highlight of the week for me. For me, working at KONUX is a dream job and the elixir of life.
