Meet DGI Byen’s staf

Niklas Barlyng, Reception Manager

As Reception Manager, I am responsible for DGI Byen's three receptions; CPH Hotel, CPH Conference and Øksnehallen. Among many other things, it is my job to make sure that our hosts and hostesses provide a consistent, professional and attentive service, regardless of which reception you as a guest meet them.

No days are alike and all guests are different. It helps to contribute to a fun and different everyday life. 

DGI Byen is a great place to work because it is a small city within the city. There are so many different offers and options, whatever you are for a conference and need a dip in the swimming centre or just want to play a game of badminton, a strike in the bowling center or an overnight stay in CPH Hotel.

Steen Christian Eriksen, Production Manager

As a production manager, my responsibility is the setup and holding of events in Øksnehallen and DGI Byen. I provide technical advice to the project managers, and I’m also responsible for manning, inventory, suppliers and product development.

I help keep the city in motion by organising professional events that surpass the client’s expectations as well as by being actively involved in DGI Byen’s strategy in practice.

DGI Byen is a wonderful workplace because I have a great bunch of colleagues and lots of autonomy in my job. I’m also very fond of Øksnehallen.

Steffen Jungsled, Executive Chef

As head chef, I am responsible for the daily operation of all kitchens in DGI Byen. From the café in the sports and culture house, to the hotel's breakfast buffet and the big events in Øksnehallen.

DGI Byen is always in motion and is therefore an incredibly versatile workplace. Being allowed to prove that we can serve inviting, healthy and sustainable food in a class of its own for all kinds of events from 2 to 3000, is what makes me happy to be a part of DGI Byen.

It is a fantastic workplace because we are here to service our guests, as well as support sports and culture in Vesterbro and not some invisible shareholders.
