    Wintershall insight: Jan Gunnar is the platform boss on Brage and has worked in the oil industry for 34 years. He loves his job since day one and we took the opportunity to ask him a few questions.

    Mr. Gunnar, what's the best thing about your job?
    - That no one day is like the other and there are new challenges to dig your claws into everyday. I find that interesting. In addition, our roster gives us quite a lot of time off. Those are good aspects.

    What does your work involve?
    - I ensure that everything on the platform is organized in a safe and coordinated way. We aim to avoid unwelcome situations by doing that. At the same time I try to motivate employees to do what's expected of them – and a bit more.

    - If you could choose another profession, what would it be?
    I've worked in the oil industry for 34 years and have never thought about working in another. I can't imagine that other jobs are just as exciting. But if I had to choose, it would be in a management post. I like being the boss.

    If you are looking for a challenging job with lots of opportunities, Wintershall is the place to be. Check out our open job positions here: https://www.wintershall.com/en/career.html #career

    At Wintershall there are no borders. 2500 colleagues from nearly 50 countries work together to achieve collective goals. But the only goals Bruno and Hermen will be rooting for today, are goals for the Netherlands or Argentina, their home countries. After the game any competition will be forgotten and both will be part of the international Wintershall team again. We wish us all a fair game tonight!
