Lars Christian Torp works as regional manager and is responsible for the day-to-day running of departments that are part of Region East-West of Heimta in Norway.

“I have been employed by Heimta since 2008. I’m a trained psychiatric nurse and have done a lot of work with developmental disorders and autism. I also have previous military training, as well as many years of sales experience in both property and IT solutions,” says Lars Christian.

Heimta came into the Ambea fold through the acquisition of Solhagagruppen in 2016. It became the foundation of Ambea’s growing sector in Norway, and from 2018 Heimta is also the name of all of Ambea’s group of six Norwegian care companies.

Heimta works with residential homes for children, young and adults with functional disabilities and psychiatric problems. Heimta also offers personal assistance (BPA), psychology and rehab centres.

Lars Christian is like the spider at the centre of the web that holds everything in his region together – and it’s a role he’s very happy with.

“The best thing about my job is that I’m involved in the selling, receiving and preparation of services, as well as follow-up with clients and department managers. There’s also a lot of variety in my job which means that no two days are the same,” he says.
