On an enjoyable day, I have good contact with my accounts and receive documents on time so I can get on with my work.

I have a less enjoyable day when it's very quiet and therefore work progresses slowly. In that case, I mainly do administration.

Firsthand experience

Your manager asks if you want to check the lease contracts of the offices of your accounts for next year. How do you proceed?

You contact the offices in different countries to obtain information. You ask them to tell you what the current rent is, what they expect for next year, how many employees they expect for next year and how this compares to this year. To obtain this information on time, you phone and email the various offices frequently. Once you have gathered the information, you analyse it and check whether it is in line with expectations. You give your approval to the office in question and they will draw up an invoice. You check the invoice and send it to the processing team to process it further.
