Anja Lillerud

Journalist in Communication Team

2011 to 2021 I worked as a journalist in Halden Arbeiderblad and alternated between the positions as online journalist, desk manager and news journalist. I was the employee’s representative in the board of the newspaper, a member of the internal negotiation committee (the union), and I represented the editorial staff in the County Union board.

My working career started with one year as communication officer in the Norwegian Army in Kirkenes, Troms and Finnmark county, then followed one year as news journalist in Halden Dagblad, 9 months as online journalist in NRK and 2,5 years as editor in Sarpsborg Tidende before I started working in HA October 2011.

After my graduation from high school I spent one year at Folk High School. Then I completed one year leader education in the Norwegian Army (communication systems). I have studied for a bachelor’s degree in International Communication and Marketing (including 6 months of working in Germany) at Østfold University College.

I have a 3-year-old son and we live three kilometers south of Halden city.
