Fun fact: I am less than an average driver; I have totaled two cars and caused at least 25 dents
I grew up in a rural area (with Nakskov being the closest town) and lived a childhood free from any concerns regarding fashion. Subsequently, I have lived and worked in Germany (showjumping and horse grooming) and in the UK and Switzerland (after qualifying as a lawyer).
In 2013 my husband and I decided that it was time for us to return to Denmark from Switzerland. And then started the battle as to who would find an awesome job first. After having interviewed with DC, I was in no doubt that this was a workplace which would provide ample opportunity for developing a career in Denmark all the while working with extremely competent colleagues. And I won the battle…
Marie-Louise Brebøl Christensen, VP, Head of People & Culture
Today, I head up People & Culture in DC. I was originally recruited into DC’s legal department to advice on HR/legal stuff (as well as German commercial contracts). However, I quickly expressed an interest in working with HR in a broader sense – and later also an ability to do so. I find that this is something we do well in DC – if you have ambitions and matching talent; the chance to take responsibility will arise.
I have no typical work day. They all differ. If it has been a good day, I have made a positive difference to someone else’s workday either in a 1:1 setting or through a wider DC or Equinor initiative.
The best part of my job is that I get to do all I can to create a great workplace for my colleagues – how motivating is that!?
