Internship smiles #19

Macha Epp just finished her internship at Atradius as an Associate Administrator in London. She was part of the internationally oriented Global UK department, responsible for providing global trade credit insurance solutions to multinational clients, and supporting these against non-payment risk.

Her tasks were supporting the sales manager. Macha would do background searches on new business opportunities. The sales manager would then review and speak with the broker to see if this is a worthy case.

Upon positive feedback, Macha would input this new business into a database. Eventually, all would be in place for the risk underwriters to financially evaluate the case to decide if Atradius is comfortable with this new piece of business.

The company was a very open and friendly working environment in which Macha felt comfortable to ask questions and get familiar with the world of credit insurance.
