Education: Master's in Law
Position: Compliance Specialist
Employed since: June 2018
Fun fact: I once took the train to Frederikshavn instead of Fredericia (look up the difference) - Whoops
I have completed a Master of Laws at Aarhus University. During my studies I joined DC in 2018 as a student employee in Legal & Compliance. When I finished my master's thesis I got the chance to work here fulltime and am now working as a Compliance Specialist in the same team.
To be honest, I actually didn’t know that much about DC before I started. The areas of work really looked interesting to me and I like the idea that everyone is playing on the same team. On top of that, many of my fellow students at the university said that DC was a great place to work and they sure did not lie.
Astrid Wulff Sørensen, Compliance Specialist
My main task is to support our business by ensuring that relevant actions are taken in order for DC to stay compliant with the many regulations, requirements and market standards that our business is in scope of. This includes overlooking various regulations, implementation of relevant measures such as guidelines, training of our traders, controls etc. A big part of my job therefore is also to understand all of the different products we trade in order for me to be able to identify, for example, needs and risks.
In my team I have the main responsibility of supporting our business outside the EU which could be our trading team in the US. A typical day for me would include everything from talking to our people in the US, discussion and alignment with people inside and outside our organisation, review of contracts and trying to be proactive by looking into new products and requirements. As DC is a company that is constantly developing, a project is never completely the same which I really like. For someone like me, with a legal background and fresh out of university, my work constantly challenges me to use and build on top of my skills which I really appreciate.
It sounds like a cliché, but it truly is the people in our entire organisation. The energy and passion that people bring is inspiring! The DC spirit is unique and something you really have to experience on your own.
The success of our company is built on having the brightest minds working across the entire organisation.
