Andreea Condrea

What is your job title?

Commercial & Contracts Manager

What do you do?

I manage the Commercial & Contracts Department which is responsible for RFP preparation and management, contract formation and administration, management of payroll subcontracts and direct supplier agreements in accordance with company policies and legal requirements.

What key skills do you bring to activpayroll?

I believe I bring to the table a number of key skills including: Leadership, mentoring, multicultural management, negotiation, dispute resolution, commercial acumen, planning and prioritisation, analytical skills and communication.

What gives you the most satisfaction about your job?

Working as a team to achieve our goals.

How did you get into the payroll/tax industry and why?

By chance, but I stuck with it by choice.

What has been the most challenging project you’ve worked on at activpayroll? Why?

In my role every challenge is an opportunity and I believe in pushing the boundaries, setting the bar higher every time. I look out for opportunities and turning each challenge into a building block.

What do you consider to be your greatest achievement outside of activpayroll?

My family.

What company value means the most to you and why?

Passionate. Passion is the natural condition to success, providing coherence to goal directed cognitions and behaviours.

Do you have any hobbies/ what do you like to do in your free time?

I appreciate all forms of art as an expression of creativity and imagination and while I am fascinated with visual arts, it is literature I love the most.

Who is your professional role model and why?

I embrace change as a constant in my life, I like to experiment and I am in a perpetual search mode. And while I’ve chosen over time various amazing personalities to look up to, I’ve come to the realisation that my heroes are no longer public figures, but often unknown. I look up to the people near me for qualities of strength, honesty, courage and perseverance.

If you could have dinner with anyone, who would it be and why?

Tonight? It would have to be Hunter S. Thompson. Why? To try and make sense of the book I’m reading these days. He’s so incisive and controversial in his discourse and I can’t help but interrupt my reading from time to time to roleplay in my head questions and imaginary answers.
