Meet DGI Byen’s staf

Ann Helene Kristensen, Lifeguard

I’m employed as a lifeguard, but I mostly work in the administration, where I’m responsible for the day-to-day running of our swim teams. I therefore spend my days as a baby swimming instructor and handling new registrations, creating teams and ad hoc tasks related to the running of the Swim Centre.

I help get the babies of Copenhagen moving, and my primary duty is to ensure that parents and the little ones can participate in fun and rewarding activities here at DGI Byen. I enjoy working at DGI Byen because I have so much freedom to organise my own working day.

I also have some wonderful colleagues who support my personal and professional development. People around me are supportive, attentive and helpful, which makes me love my job.

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.

Pia Schjoldann, Process Consultant

My job as a process consultant entails facilitating a cultural transition to an continuous improvement culture. In day-to-day terms, it means that I challenge the existing systems and processes, facilitate change processes and support their implementation through management and staff. I move the staff towards new possibilities to work more simply and in a way that creates more value.

I introduce them to new approaches, and my work at DGI Byen and through my own network has made it possible to supply the crisis centre Joannahuset and shelters such as Lærkehøj with used beds that were switched out in connection with CPH Hotel’s design renovation. Being able to make an additional contribution like that feels great.
