You have worked for Fortum over 15 years.Talk about your career.
“I started as a trainee working at that time as a physical trader, which meant I worked with planning our hydro and nuclear power production. Since then I’ve worked as a business controller, market analyst and head of financial trading. It’s been an exciting internal career journey and I’ve always felt supported and encouraged by my colleagues and managers. But I wasn’t served these opportunities on a silver platter; I’ve been committed and I’ve worked hard to grow and develop.”

My job involves coordinating our process and project portfolio and I work closely with the department’s team leaders.
