Jens Illum is 46 years old and started as an Electrician at Inwatec in July 2018. He lives in Glamsbjerd on Funen with his family and their two cats. Jens used to do taekwondo in his free time. However now, Jens prefers to spend his spare time with his three children and go out to enjoy the nature.
During the day, Jens likes being and working at Inwatec. He adds: “At Inwatec, they do a lot for the employees to be comfortable. I also think it’s easy to talk to the boss, it’s like we are equal, and that’s great. We are not just a number!”
After school, Jens did an apprenticeship as a house electrician in a small company and worked in this field until 2006. From then on, Jens was building electrical control units for different kinds of machines. For the past 1.5 years, Jens was even working on many projects for Inwatec’s machines. Now, being directly employed at Inwatec, Jens is still building control units as an electrician, but describes that it is nevertheless different from his previous jobs:
“The work itself is not really different, it’s more the company and the colleagues. It’s really easy to work with everybody, also with the engineers at the office for example.”
He also appreciates that now, he can see the control systems being directly installed in Inwatec’s machines. “It helps me to give me a better understanding of the machines and what I do with the components”, Jens explains.
Also, Jens finds the development processes at Inwatec fascinating.
“It’s very interesting, especially the units with the robots technique! Sometimes I wonder, ‘where do all the ideas come from?’ – that’s just interesting. Just to come up with the idea to make those machines, that’s crazy. All those ideas!”
“I have been here for three months now, which is not really a long time, but I think it’s just a good company. I like it.”
