Andreea, what do you enjoy most about being a billing agent?

The satisfaction of maintaining financial order, as the precision needed in the billing process aligns well with my nature. The dynamic nature of addressing billing inquiries and resolving issues keeps the role exciting and allows continuous learning. Combining technical skills, attention to detail, and interpersonal skills make this role challenging and rewarding.

What skills do you need for billing?

My role requires a combination of technical and interpersonal skills. Firstly, a firm grasp of financial systems and billing software is essential. Attention to detail is crucial to ensure the accuracy of the invoices. Analytical and communication skills are vital in proactively addressing potential issues, answering inquiries, and clarifying billing details.

"At AtkinsRéalis, there are always new projects and initiatives you can take part in, exploring innovative ideas and accessing your creativity." - Andreea

How did your career journey lead you into billing?

It all began in the first year of college in a back-office position requiring attention to detail and organizational skills. This laid the groundwork for understanding the importance of precision in financial processes.

But what was missing was more direct client interaction. So, I moved to a customer support role. This enhanced my communication skills, provided insights into client needs, and developed my proactive mindset in addressing issues and building positive relationships.

I pursued an economics diploma, which proved valuable as I stepped into the role of special pricing analyst. My drive to learn more led me to the role of billing agent at AtkinsRéalis. Drawing from all my previous experiences, I was well-equipped to handle the billing processes.

"As a billing agent, I thrive in an environment that requires a deep understanding of financial systems and policies and the ability to interact with clients and resolve inquiries." - Andreea
