Fun fact: I was a professional tennis player and once played Rafael Nadal
I grew up in Aarhus with my family and sport was always a big part of our lives - my father even learned me to throw a ball before I could walk. At the age of 14, I started travelling almost full time as a tennis player and became professional three years later. Due to injuries, I unfortunately had to quit and now I am enrolled at Aarhus University where I study Economics and Business Administration. I chose a programme in English because I thrive in a diverse, international environment and perhaps want to work abroad at some point.
DC is an innovative and creative company that has a great reputation among students especially at Aarhus University, and has consequently always been in my scope of a future employer. DC offers flexible working hours and many other benefits for me as a student employee and I am treated with the same trust and respect as any other full-time employees. And if you have a good idea, DC is the perfect place to be. There is no bureaucracy that erodes that idea and you therefore have the opportunity to make a real impact.
Andreas Moltke-Leth, Junior Executive Assistant
I am the Junior Executive Assistant to the CEO and my primary task is to deliver high-quality support to the CEO and the Executive Assistant to the CEO, including various strategic, commercial and operational topics. Many of my tasks are ad-hoc, making it difficult to narrow my tasks down to one or two things.
The first thing I do when arriving at work is to check my emails and from that, I usually get my tasks for the day. I work some days by myself and other days with the Executive Assistant to the CEO or the Strategy & Communications team, depending on what actions and tasks are most critical.
The best part of my job is that I get challenged and inspired every day at work mainly because of my competent colleagues but also by the responsibility I am given.
