Trade Controller to support our growing customer business at Danske Commodities

Expires tomorrow

Are you analytical by heart, and do you thrive on working with details in a structured manner? Would you like to join a team which focuses on supporting the organisation in establishing an efficient customer business? Then you might be the new trade controller we are looking for!

Welcome to our Customer Operations & Reporting team

You will join our newly established Customer Operations & Reporting team, created to meet our strategic initiatives, aimed at significantly growing our Danske Commodities (DC)’s customer business. DC trades in energy wholesale markets, which means that we do not engage with end-consumers. As such, customers in our business are energy producers, large-scale energy consumers and the likes.

Our Customer Operations & Reporting team consists of skilled, quality-minded and committed trade controllers, covering different areas within trade validations, master data quality and compliance reporting. The team is made of awesome individuals with a wide array of backgrounds. We like to challenge the status quo and ensure that transparency is not only for the numbers but for the team. We’re part of DC’s Finance & Accounting team and we create value by ensuring high-quality financial numbers, including timely reporting and compliance.

Understanding the needs from our customer business

No matter your level of experience, we will make sure to give you a solid onboarding. Starting out, you will get a thorough introduction to the team, your tasks and our customer and compliance principles at DC. Your first assignment will be to help and understand the needs of DC’s customer business and the organisation. On the longer term, you will have a significant role in developing our Customer Operations & Reporting team by onboarding new tasks and optimise processes and procedures.

"Join our journey to expand DC’s customer business!" - Maria Terp-Nielsen, Head of Customer Operations & Reporting.
