IT people leading IT people

At Netcompany, IT people lead IT people. To develop the technical experts and leaders of tomorrow. This is fundamental to how we do business. It is unique and it gives you the optimal conditions for learning from peers and colleagues, develop your managerial skills and take the next step in your career towards increased responsibility. 
“I think it’s difficult to manage a field you don’t understand. If you don’t understand the technical complexity of an IT project, it is more difficult to be critical in terms of planning, activities and estimates. One of the worst things to happen in project management is unforeseen surprises. That’s why it is so important to be able to ask the right questions and give input to possible solutions.“ - Jonas Hansen, Manager - on why IT people should lead IT people

The mentor is a very important person for the development and well-being of each individual

Long-term mentoring 

All Netcompany employees are assigned a personal mentor, someone you can talk to about professional development and career goals. The mentor/mentee-relationship is long-term and provides a real-life visualisation of the career opportunities that lie ahead. With a mentor, continuous development is assured — even if you move teams, to different projects, and end up working with different project managers as a result. 

“It is a huge privilege to get to know people, to have these conversations about what skills they have, what they wish to strengthen, what gives their lives meaning right now and how they manage to balance work and spare time….“ - Kirstine Sofie Keller, Manager - on being a mentor

All mentors are experienced employees who have been in the same position as you, and from the day you become a manager, you yourself will be a mentor for a less experienced colleague. In addition to your regular mentor discussions, you can always reach out to your mentor to talk about work.
