The F&C function provides professional support and advice to business units and corporate executive management. We also represent Equinor in the financial markets and are responsible for the interaction with equity analysts and investors.

How would you describe the purpose of the finance and control business in Equinor?

For a constantly changing and evolving company like Equinor, the Finance & Control function is an important and indispensable part of an organisation. We are one of the key departments that provides management with valuable insights that facilitate decision-making processes and align the company's compliance with current regulations.

What has surprised you the most during your time on the graduate programme?

I was amazed at how people think about "change". Normally, people are quite hesitant to change a familiar job. But at Equinor, and of course we have a why-change Q&A, but what surprises me is that almost everyone has a desire for positive change and to contribute to those changes "together".

Of everything you’ve learnt on the programme so far, what has had the biggest impact on you and your career?

It is difficult to come up with one specific thing because all the experiences and lessons I have learnt have been valuable. But being part of a transition and technology development in itself is an inspiration. It’s helped me build up competence with advance digital tools and inspired me to think out of the box and deliver work in an efficient way.
