Pål ØstbøHired Ross Star since:
I was born and raised in Stavanger, Norway. I have a degree in Graphic Design, many years of freelance work as well as a stint in the printing industry. Later I transitioned to IT, working as an IT technician and IT Architect for several years before taking on a manager role for a Global IT company. Now I work in Ross Offshore as a Senior Advisor on IT consultancy and digital marketing.
I’m a happy camper, always trying to stay positive and address any challenge with a smile.
Dobbel espresso to get the day started before checking emails, following up clients and consultants. As part of the Social Media/Digital marketing group in Ross Offshore, a little tinkering in Adobe Creative Cloud is usually part of the day as well. As a former IT technician, I help around the office as well whenever necessary. Other than that, I try my best to spread some joy around the office with some bad dad jokes and a big smile.
Great colleagues, you get appreciated and you feel an important part of the team. Being a Ross Star is also having the freedom to go about your responsibilities as you think best, encouraging ownership and initiative. Work/life balance is very much a part of the Ross life, which makes it easier when life gets in the way and you have to juggle family and work.
Play with the kids, being a nuisance to my girlfriend, hang out with friends, read books, draw illustrations and listen to music. I play the guitar and banjo whenever I get the chance. I also like to go to concerts.
I can do a bit of woodworking and I play multiple musical instruments.
Close cooperation with our clients and partners, adapting to changes and staying flexible in our deliveries. The oil & gas industry will still be very important in the future, but we should be open to new ventures when they arise.
Reliable – Keeping our promises and delivering quality is an integral part of our success. We are helpful and want the best for our coworkers, consultants, and clients.
