The chief divisional engineer's broad responsibilities

Mads Kofod joined Aarsleff in 1993

– My position as chief divisional engineer means that my daily work involves a good mixture of administrative tasks, management tasks and classical engineer tasks. I am responsible for the division’s budgets, I make sure that the employees are satisfied, and I also regularly work as a site manager. Also, I participate in development projects where I contribute to incorporating and selling Aarsleff’s expertise.

As a chief divisional engineer my overall responsibility is to finish our projects on time, within the economic framework and in Aarsleff’s high quality. It takes a broad, general knowledge and the ability to choose the right qualifications for the right projects – so I must stay in close dialogue with my skilled employees and coordinate the work with them. It can sometimes be quite a puzzle, but exciting too.

I have participated in many projects in Aarsleff, and I have always found my colleagues across the organisation very helpful. Everyone has a fantastic will to support each other and find the best possible solution to the projects. I think the great commitment is due to the fact that you never stop learning at Aarsleff. We have the freedom to influence our own working life, so we take a great joint responsibility. The good teamwork is definitely the reason why I am so happy with my work.
