“Before starting on one of my first full-time projects, I was asked if I spoke French. I replied, ‘yes, conversational, but it’s a bit rusty’. Next thing I knew, I was on this really niched project for the biggest Christmas tree producer in Europe – in France. Luckily, I love meeting new people, despite the occasional language barrier, so it all worked out great and I got to spend all of December visiting different French cities, speaking French and looking at Christmas trees”.
Kristin Thornes is a bona fide optimist who much deservingly received an award for the “biggest smile of the year” at QVARTZ’ summer party in Norway last year. Kristin began her career in QVARTZ at our Copenhagen office, first as an intern and then as a full-time consultant, before returning ‘home’ to our Oslo office. Moreover, Kristin is very active in the QVARTZ civilisation, “Alongside recruitment and marketing activities, I’m involved in CSR initiatives and various social events at the office; everything from sports tournaments to the summer party”, says Kristin – with a big smile.
