Experience
After completing a BA in Journalism and Communication I worked in communication for nearly six years. Amongst others I worked with political campaigns and lobbying at the head association of Swiss business and as a Senior Associate at the communication consultancy Burson-Marsteller in Switzerland and in Norway. In my first six months at Statkraft I worked in procurement, gaining first insight into procurement processes and working with various suppliers and internal stakeholders both in Norway and abroad.

What attracted you to Statkraft?
Working at Statkraft feels very meaningful because we are part of making the world’s energy supply greener. With a solid base in Norway and growing international operations, Statkraft is an interesting company to work for. I applied for a position in procurement because I think it is a central function in any company. The degree to which a company is able to pick the right suppliers and work successfully with them impacts the cost level of a company and the success probability of projects.
