Jennifer Jennerhed, project developer at Hemsö in Stockholm.

Jennifer started working at Hemsö in 2018 and held a trainee position in project development in Stockholm. This then resulted in a job as an analyst – a position that gave her a taste of the project developer role – before she finally landed in the role of project developer at the turn of the year 2019/2020. The internal journey at Hemsö has given her the opportunity to develop and get to know the company in a completely different way.

Jennifer’s everyday work consists largely of customer dialog with a wide range of actors and stakeholders in a project. This ranges from contact with municipalities to listen to their needs to meetings with tenants to discuss where they want to establish themselves. This is with the vision of always understanding their needs and being humble about them, regardless of whether it is a municipality or a private operator.

In Jennifer’s role as a project developer, there are more parameters to consider than good insight and understanding of tenants’ needs.

– I think it’s important to be aware of what’s happening in the market and in the world around us and to look at what other actors are doing. How can we constantly develop our projects to make them better? I think that’s very important to have in your role, but also to remember what we’ve done in the past and learn from it, thereby identifying potential for improvement.

The last two years have included rising construction costs and interest rates, a reality that Jennifer, like many others, has had to deal with.

– The municipalities also find it a little harder to get their finances together and are a little more restrictive about what they build and with whom they build. But I do think that Hemsö is a strong, long-term partner and a credible partner for municipalities.
