As a Communications Consultant in our Corporate Communications department, I am responsible for PR and communications for various business areas such as innovation, fermented milk, meat and wine cultures. I transferred fully to our Corporate Communications department after five years of working part-time with communication and part-time as a personal assistant to the CEO. Today, I take part in all kinds of exciting communication projects; whenever there is a change project coming up, whether we are buying a company or making internal organizational changes, it always involves communication.
When working with communication, the right timing is extremely important. I benefit from my thorough experience of the organization gained over many years. The fact that Chr. Hansen is a global company means that I have a much more interesting every day life at work. One of my favorite tasks is interviewing colleagues all over the world for news stories on our intranet. I talk to Brazil on the phone, I chat with Germany and I an on the mail with Spain and Italy. My job leads me to all corners of the company and I never cease to be impressed by all the top professional and highly committed colleagues I have around the world.
Chr. Hansen is an exciting company with exciting products that concern all of us. The company has strong values and high ambitions, and there is always something going on, business-wise as well as socially!
If you want to move in a new direction and have the talent, there is full management back-up to do so. What actually moved me over the edge was when my boss said to me: “It is such a waste of talent if keep sitting here!” Today, I have moved on to a whole new career within communications after studying journalism and strategic communication to strengthen my skills.
