Jakub Coufal

Financial Controller

Everyone has a choice. You can keep looking and travel the world for the perfect job, or you can experience and get to know the world of a company which deserves your attention. I have a clear idea of what I want to achieve.

Jakub’s journey to Penta led through Manchester, where he studied, but also through long-term internships with companies in Jakarta and Dubai. The most decisive factor for his early career, however, was the Uni Chance student competition. The best participants, after going through several levels of complicated assignments, get a chance to work at three top companies during nine months. Jakub’s first choice was Penta and he did not go on to the other two companies. As a result of his extraordinary level of knowledge and hard work, Jakub was soon offered a controller position with us. „Everyone has a choice. You can keep looking and travel the world for the perfect job, or you can experience and get to know the world of a company which deserves your attention. I have a clear idea of what I want to achieve,“ says Jakub, who started his career at Penta at twenty three.
