  • Intro days
    The purpose of the introduction days is to introduce you to Danske Commodities. You will get an overview of our 4 units and a thorough insight into our Trading & Origination unit. We will also introduce you to our values, which are an important factor in our work life. Last but not least, the introduction days will give you the opportunity to get to know your fellow Graduates.

  • "My challenge"
    "My Challenge" is your opportunity to dig into finding a solution to a problem of value to DC. You will present your findings to relevant stakeholders in the company and receive feedback on your findings and your approach. This will give you an in-depth knowledge about a specific area within DC and a deep understanding of our business.

  • ERP-programme module 1
    The ERP-programme focuses on risk management within the energy industry. As part of the Graduate Programme, you will complete module 1, which will give you a deeper understanding of how the energy market works. The programme will be an independent study running concurrently with your daily job. Once you are done as a Graduate, you will have the opportunity to complete module 2. When you have passed both exams, you will be a certified energy risk professional.

  • Team challenge
    During the team challenge you will be introduced to a critical issue in DC that you and your fellow graduates will try to solve as a group. This is a way for you to work closely together with the other Graduates and also to go around the organisation to meet your colleagues and receive information from them. The final result will be evaluated by relevant stakeholders at an exam that signifies the completion of the Programme.
