Objective

I have throughout my career as well as educational life at all times been exposed to multicultural environments and setting. I am mainly looking for a job, as project coordinator or project assistant within an international company. Considering my past experience and educational background, a company dealing with international politics and/or human rights would seem to be the most appropriate.

Here is a summarized list of the skills I have from my Curriculum Vitae:

·I have worked for the French Embassy in Tokyo, wherefrom I have in-depth knowledge of how diplomacy operates, the interrelations and the political environment.

·I have a French Maitrise and a MA in International Politics and Conflict, Security and Development, as well as a French DEUG in law, with specialties in Geopolitics, Human Rights, Political Science, Strategy and International Law.

·I have had extended stays abroad in Jordan, Japan and England, prior to my move to Denmark. I also traveled extensively to more than 25 countries, either through my work as a student stewardess for AIR FRANCE or subsequent jobs, and so worked in highly multi-cultural environments.

·I have a deep knowledge of the French and Danish society, as well as the English.

·I am fluent in French and English. I have been learning Danish for 8 months now, 6 hours per week, which has been intensified since early April with 3 hours daily. I also am proficient in Spanish and have knowledge of Japanese. Being in a relationship with a Danish citizen, with 2 smaller children, I am currently applying my Danish skills on a daily basis as well.

·I have worked as Project Management officer and Capacity Building/Training officer within the A.P. Møller – Maersk Group, to gather more operational experience and to gain further international perspective.

During my tenure with A.P. Moller – Maersk, I have been involved in a wide range of activities, ranging from core Project Management, including focus on Communication and Change Management to process improvement projects, aiming at fundamentally enhancing the business model and core processes of the Liner activities.

I have also been involved in design, planning and execution of training and education for Maersk Procurement globally with a high focus on Capacity Building and enhancing learning for both participants and the A.P. Moller – Maersk Group.

I have throughout my tenure with Maersk been exposed to various training and development opportunities, hereunder Project Management training as well as Process Excellence.
