You can learn more about Franziska Link and her professional background in this Q&A.
What do you work with?
In the Digital & Innovation team, I work with clients mainly from the public sector and non-profit organisations on developing strategies for how to use their data and on shaping their digitalisation journey. Since these topics are relevant for a lot of Ramboll clients, we also work with Ramboll colleagues from other locations and departments as well as on some internal innovation and digitalisation initiatives.
What made you want to join Ramboll Management Consulting?
I first heard about Ramboll when I studied in Denmark, and I have been following their journey ever since. The company’s mission and values really resonate with me. Especially the topics in my unit in which is all about contributing to sustainable society transformation.
In the team that I am working with, we have different educational backgrounds and complement each other with our skills. This means that every day, there is a chance of learning something new. And, most importantly, the colleagues are really inspiring and fun. Also, Ramboll offers the flexibility I was looking for. For now, I am working in Berlin for a couple of months, then moving to Munich in the autumn – and let’s see which office locations I can explore next year.
What is the most significant professional experience you have had so far?
One of them is definitely a 5-month stay in Sudan in my gap year between the Bachelor’s and Master’s program. I was working in an employment promotion project in the capital city, Khartoum, together with an international team of experts. We were confronted with many chaotic, unforeseen situations.
As a team with a great deal of patience and creativity, we almost always found a solution. This really helps me to put things in perspective today and stay calm in what feels like stressful situations.
What is the most exciting development within your field of work?
It’s no news anymore that organisations need to leverage their data to stay relevant in the market – even organisations that do not necessarily have the skills in-house are aware that they need to change. Often, the question is how to do it in practice and where to start. In our interdisciplinary team, we develop individual solutions for the clients, involving all levels of employees and management.
How do you define the higher purpose of what you do?
I am driven by creating a more livable, equitable and fair future for us and future generations on this planet. A lot of passionate people around the globe share this objective, and yes, it may sound super vague. But as long as everybody does the best they can and takes small steps, I am convinced that we will get there together.
What is your best source of inspiration?
Always being on the move! Discovering new places and meeting new people is my source of energy and inspiration.
At my desk I always have…?
Some empty coffee cups, water glasses, my headphones, the FFP2 mask, snacks… lots of things. I swear my computer is more organised.
If I had the skills, I would love to be…?
…a deep-sea diver! I enjoy scuba diving a lot but for now, I only do deep dives at work.
