Get to know Amos

How did you come across the international trainee programme?

During my final year of studies in The University of Edinburgh, Axess Group was reaching out to high performing students in a career fair. As an attendee, I was introduced to what Axess does and had the opportunity to converse with Øystein Rasmussen and Martin Rødahl. This eventually led me to a formal conversation with key stakeholders within the company. After finding out more about Axess, and the opportunities available, I took a leap of faith and began an unforgettable journey in Norway in 2019.

Why did you decide to participate in the programme?

It is not everyday anyone gets an opportunity to work in Norway. So, the question back then was rather, “Why not?”. International trainee programmes are typically geared towards giving trainees holistic exposure to a company or business, as they get to rotate through a variety of positions. This means that the learning curve would be very steep. As someone who thrives in a challenging environment and possesses a deep curiosity for business functions, I found this programme very attractive.  

Looking back, the programme has shaped me as a professional, and it is a decision I have never regretted.

What was your journey like in Axess?

I started as a Graduate Management Trainee in Molde, where our headquarters is located. I got involved in project management and sales. After 9 months, I moved to the Bergen office, and spent most of my time offshore, where I developed technical skills and gained operational know-how. At the start of 2021, I moved to Singapore and took up the role of Training & Development Manager, helping to support competency development in the company. During my entire journey in Axess thus far, I have met many wonderful colleagues, including the management team, who are very friendly and supportive.

What do you find most meaningful about your current role?

There are three things I find most meaningful.

Firstly, my work allows me to use my talents. It sharpens my current skillsets and teaches me new things every day. Secondly, my work supports something bigger. In Axess, we are committed to cultivating a passionate and high-performance culture where highly engaged and competent employees can grow together and succeed as a team. Thirdly, my work allows me to make a positive impact. I can see how my teammates benefit from what I am doing.

How is it like being part of a global team?

As a global company, we draw on the benefits of international diversity. I consider myself to be very blessed because I get to know and work with talents from all around the world, who have varied experiences and can offer different perspectives.

Under my Training and Development role for example, I could be working alongside our subject matter experts from the Mexico office, while consulting and sharing ideas with teammates from Norway – all while being in Singapore. In Axess, borders and geographical distance do not matter and this is evident during the COVID-19 pandemic where travel has been severely impacted.

Additionally, working in a global team provides us with a holistic and realistic view of the world, and it is a brilliant way of overcoming cognitive biases, if any.

What do you hope to achieve in the company?

Axess has a lot going for the company. I think the opportunities here are far and wide. There are many areas of growth we can achieve, including professional and technical skills. For me, I aim to develop and stretch my professional skills even further, while contributing meaningful work to the organisation and the clients we serve. 

What is the best thing about working in Axess?

I think the heart of “what” and “how” we do things in Axess always comes back to the WE Values that shape our company culture. What is even more amazing is that despite our teammates coming from different backgrounds, we all share the same values and passion for the outdoors.
