It was easy for everyone else in the office to warm to Mette from day one. She is always available to support with a wide range of matters from travel bookings, event set-up and administration to overseeing the vast number of practical issues which are essential for our busy office to run smoothly.
Mette is no stranger to working internationally, having joined us from one of Denmark’s oldest and largest engineering contractors specialising in plumbing, ventilation, sprinklers, cooling, district heating and energy. Her work there often involved supporting colleagues in different parts of Denmark and Europe – predominantly in Greenland.
After 25 years with the company she decided it was time for a change – and how lucky we are that she chose us. Whilst some of the core tasks are similar, Mette has enjoyed learning more about European cooperation and getting to know the Interreg family.
I asked Mette what she thought of her new work place and she seemed to agree:
I enjoy the new challenges which my work at the Joint Secretariat has given me. As a bonus, I have also got some very nice colleagues. The work is meaningful, has an international atmosphere and deals with our climate which is an important issue in the moment.
