Which unit do you work in?
How is your trainee plan (rotations)?
My trainee plan has not been decided yet.
What attracted you to Statkraft?
On a general level, I would like to be part of making the world’s energy supply greener. Statkraft has both a solid base in Norway and growing international operations, making it an interesting company to work for. I applied for a position in procurement because I feel companies have an obligation to set up their projects in a responsible way, for example by choosing the right partners and suppliers. Procurement is a key function in this regard and I feel that my trainee position will give me the opportunity to learn best practices.
