“We challenge industry norms and dare to think new and alternative”

Why is Telenor Towers such a great place to work?

It’s exhilarating to work with something that holds significant value in people’s everyday lives. Beyond delivering what customers want, Telenor Towers emphasizes showcasing the value behind it and creating solutions that benefit customers and society. To succeed, our industry must come up with good solutions. I can’t think of anything more motivating than working on precisely that. I think it’s cool that Telenor Towers dares to be offensive and challenge industry colleagues, authorities, suppliers, and customers to try to think new and alternative.

What motivates you working in Telenor Towers/this industry?

We work with something that means a great deal to people’s everyday lives – if that isn’t a motivational factor, then what is? Another motivator for me is the opportunity to meet people, getting to know them and understanding what challenges they are working to solve, and if we can offer to contribute to the solution with what we offer, that certainly motivate me.

(What was your dream job growing up?)

Growing up, I dreamt of becoming a hairdresser, then a police officer, followed by an attorney, and later, a diplomat. I believe the traits required for these diverse jobs apply to the work I am responsible for today—acting as an ambassador for our customers, especially in service management and providing a problem-solving approach to their individual challenges.

The people, culture and willingness to change are key drivers for Telenor Towers’ success.
