And would you like to work closely with highly skilled energy professionals, who are eager to share their knowledge with you? As a Market Risk Analyst in Danske Commodities, you will be a trusted partner to the business, ensuring an optimised risk profile in line with our defined risk guidelines and policies.  

Your team and role in DC

Danske Commodities is one of the most successful European companies within energy trading and right now, we are looking to welcome another skilled colleague to our Market Risk Management team. We are a team of dedicated specialists with various nationalities and experience, working to support the business - and in doing so, we also work closely together with the other teams in our Risk Management unit. In the job, you will be responsible for monitoring the daily trading positions, markets and mandates given for a specific business area. You will also be responsible for the daily reporting of profit and loss as well as following up on the risk metrics such as VaR and CFaR.

Your profile and development journey in DC

As a person, you thrive in an environment with various stakeholders and you are not afraid to challenge your colleagues on their views. No matter if you have recently graduated or you have experience from the energy sector (or similar), we have plenty of challenges for you. Starting out, you will get a thorough introduction to Risk Management in DC, your tasks and primary stakeholders, so you are as well-equipped as possible to take on the responsibility for ensuring that our market risk exposure is fully understood, managed and reported on time.  On the longer term, you will have a significant role in developing our business partnering role through various analyses and ensuring that we are in control of the underlying risks. In other words, you will be part of ensuring that DC stays in business tomorrow.

As our new colleague, you will get the opportunity to make a real difference to our business and manage your own areas – so if you are ready for your next development opportunity, please do not hesitate to apply.
