My name is Mette. I’ve worked in Chr. Hansen for four years as a lab technician, and I’m 37 years old. I have a bachelor’s in medical science.
From stability to development
When I first joined Chr. Hansen it was in another job than I have today. I started working with stability on our products and after about two years I moved on, and now I work with validation and method development on our probiotics products.
Part of my job is also working with safety. I cover four departments, so part of my time goes with walking around our labs and offices making sure that everyone is safe and have a good working environment.
A varied work day
The most inspiring thing about the job is that it’s very varied. I work at the lab, I work at the office, I work with the data, I work with safety. I have lots of things to do and that is appreciated here in Chr. Hansen, the work that you do. And I can make my own work day.
Developing is part of the job
I definitely think that Chr. Hansen is a good place to be. If you make an effort, you are granted other opportunities. When I first came here, I didn’t have many expectations to develop. But that came along. I got the opportunity to change career in another job, and now I am looking forward to reading a master’s in biotechnology, which I have had the opportunity to do.
Like working with family
The Chr. Hansen culture is about one big family, I think. We take care of each other, we take care of each other’s work life and are interested in the personal life too. We are very social and it’s a very good place to be.
I think it’s very nice to be part of company that sells something that is good for your health, that can help many people and really makes a difference.
