Welcome to Citec, Torgeir! Tell us why you chose Citec at this point of your career, please.
Thank you, it is a pleasure to be here! I chose Citec because I have worked for so long only in the oil industry and I wanted to try different things. I look forward to working in Project Management here. I am also excited about the opportunities to work in different cleantech segments such as hydrogen for example.
How have the first three months at Citec been?
I started with the home office way of working because of covid-19 so I haven’t really been at the office that much yet. Having the strong tools that we have, makes working remotely ok. But I am really waiting to get to know my colleagues and the company better – face to face. I know we work in close collaboration with other Citec countries as well and that is something I am enthusiastic about.
In these first months I have already participated in interesting and challenging projects I am looking forward to more of those.
What do you value in a work community and how does Citec stand out?
I value a work culture where people help each other.
It is important to share experiences to leverage the whole team. At Citec we have that; if someone needs support or is lacking something, colleagues are there to help.
I find that as a company we are very well driven and that the management focuses on relevant topics. Our organisation is flat, we are able to react quickly and we concentrate on deliverables. I appreciate that we constantly look for opportunities to be more effective. I would describe Citec as an agile and effective company that delivers on time.
It’s great to have you onboard Torgeir!
