Trainee weekend in Hafjell and Bremanger daily life

For a weekend in early March the technical trainees were lucky to be able to meet up at Elkem HQ’s cozy cabin in Hafjell. Here, we could enjoy the great variety of ski slopes. We had the pleasure to be joined by Eyde trainee, Solveig Steinsland, and former trainee, Ellen Døli on this trip.

Getting to know the industry

Being a trainee in Elkem is a unique privilege, and no trainee periods are the same. In this post, I will try to give a brief overview of what one period can be like. During my first trainee placement, I am working at the silicon smelting plant in Thamshavn, Orkanger. My stay has given me a steep learning curve with great colleagues, and it will be difficult to say goodbye when I move to my next location and new exciting assignments already in a few weeks.

New year greetings from Bjølvefossen

Christmas is in the rear view mirror, and things are starting to normalise after the holidays. I am halfway through my first period as a trainee, currently working in the technical department at Elkem Bjølvefossen. My autumn has been a myriad of exciting assignments, travelling, and courses, intermittently interrupted by jovial coffee breaks, workouts, and social happenings.
