My Career in Marketing - Paula Pöntynen
Read about Paula's career in marketing
Our Brand Managers are ambitious, skilful and vital to creating good results in our companies.
We offer an innovative and demanding marketing environment, where competence and career development are of great importance. This is realised through on-the-job training and extensive further education at Orkla Brand Academy. Our goal is to develop good coworkers who can fill future management roles in the company and the corporation as a whole.
We have needs on several levels and therefore recommend both newly graduated and those with relevant experience to apply for a position.
In September 2012, I applied for the position as a Brand Manager in Orkla. That was actually the only job I applied to, since I knew that this was my dream job. One month later, I had my first interview – on Skype since I was on exchange in Texas. Two more interviews, and two tests later, I god the job as a Brand Manager. I still remember the call from Orkla telling me that they offered me the job- I was thrilled! August 2013 I started my career in Orkla, as Brand Manager for Mr.Lee and Toro Rice. During my years in Orkla I have also had the responsibility for Idun Ketchup and Mustard and FUN Light. Orkla is a great place to work, with many possibilities. I couldn’t ask for a better place to work!
