From Accountant to Global Storyteller: My Journey at Nova
Meet Liora Abramov, the 31-year-old accountant who's all about spreading the word on Nova. From her beginning as a revenue controller, Liora has grown to become a "Financial Storyteller" at Nova, leading a team of women. With her sights set on creating a horizontal platform for unifying perspectives, Liora's second role at Nova is nothing short of exciting and fulfilling.
“Before we begin, allow me to say that when I first walked through the doors at Nova, I knew I had found something special. And let me tell you, my colleagues here are some of the brightest and most talented people I've ever had the pleasure of working with.”
What an opening! That's what's called... an impressive entrance.
So tell me a little about yourself, Liora.
“My name is Liora Abramov and I'm a 31-year-old accountant. I'm married with two young daughters, and they are counting down the days until they can participate in the next great event Nova puts on for kids. I've been with Nova for three years now, but it feels like a lifetime. I've grown so much both personally and professionally since starting here.
Before Nova, I studied Economics and Accounting at Tel Aviv University, and worked as audit manager at PWC. But at Nova, I've taken on my first role outside of an accounting firm. My goal was always to work for a global company that does good in the world, and that's exactly what I found here. As financiers, our mission is to tell the company's story through our financial reports, and I'm proud to be a part of that.
I started at Nova as a Revenue Controller and EU Controller, but as the company grew, I took on the role of Corporate Controller.”
Tell us more about how did your career evolve at Nova?
With Nova’s growth we realized that better communication and integration between the various global finance teams, is required.
Thanks to Nova’s open-minded approach, I was able to make significant progress , establish new work interfaces with other departments, and this led to an offer to assume a role that hadn't existed before.
Knowing that Nova offers its employees growth opportunities, I jumped at the chance to take on this new role with a cross-organizational and global perspective.
What is your personal experience in your second role at Nova?
The flexibility to take on more responsibilities and expand my knowledge is truly exciting and it's a pleasure to be able to shape my own position. It's a true testament to Nova's commitment to fostering personal and professional growth for their employees.
What allows you to maintain such high motivation and enthusiasm for your work for nearly 3 years?
The people at Nova are what keeps me motivated and enthusiastic about my work. The company's focus on personal and professional development, along with Nova’s management ability to build high motivation in the team, creates a truly dynamic and energizing work environment.
The emphasis on innovation and building for the future at Nova is inspiring and it's exciting to be a part of that. I get to learn new things every day, some of them directly impact my day-to-day work and some are focused on improving personal skills and tools to preform better in my role.
Even my daughters feel like they are part of Nova. They are not just fans of the company - they're practically ambassadors for it. They love the fun events and gifts that Nova provides for families and feel like active participants in the company's culture. When my eldest daughter was asked what she wanted to be when she grew up, she said "I want to work at Nova".
I couldn't be prouder.
The company's summer camp for children is also a huge plus, which allowed me to work with peace of mind knowing my kids are nearby, having a blast with fun activities and making great memories.
