I joined DC as a student employee in Power Trading Operations, and accepted a full-time position in the same team a year later while writing my master thesis on the side. After two years of full-time employment, I became Head of Power Trading Operations where I got to develop my managerial skills. Recently, as I returned from maternity leave with my twin boys, I got the opportunity to go in a new direction as a Senior Strategy Analyst in Strategy and Communications.
When I first heard about DC at the university, I quickly got the impression that it would be the perfect fit for me in terms of the culture and the amount of responsibility offered. Therefore, I kept an eye on openings in the team I knew suited my competences and made sure to apply as soon as it was possible.
Anne Sophie Fall Thorø, Senior Strategy Analyst
I work with strategy – this means that I am responsible for the development, planning and execution of the company’s corporate strategy as well as driving the annual strategy process for developing unit strategies. I also act as an internal consultant, working on ad hoc strategy tasks, commercial opportunities including market analysis, project planning, pitch materials, etc.
There is no typical workday regarding the job tasks as they follow our yearly strategy cycle combined with ad-hoc strategy tasks and projects. However, a typical day for me includes participating in meetings, concentrated work at my desk, eating a delicious lunch, all while having fun with my colleagues.
I really like the variation in the tasks that I do, and in relation to the working environment I especially value that I am surrounded by so many highly skilled employees that challenge and inspire me every single day. Further, I find it rewarding to be a part of setting the long-term direction for DC.
The success of our company is built on having the brightest minds working across the entire organisation.
Get a sense of what it is like to work in a company scoring in the 'Top of Class' category on employee satisfaction.
