Senior Financial Controller for experienced Finance team

Would you like to make an impact in a company founded on a cooperative mindset? And are you ready to be challenged as part of an experienced team with an agile and dynamic culture? Then you might be our new Senior Financial Controller.

Join a team with a wide-ranging skill set
In Financial Controlling, we have the responsibility for all financial reporting to our senior management, mother company Equinor and external stakeholders. At the same time, we act as internal advisors when onboarding new activities and entering new market areas. As a Senior Financial Controller, you will contribute with your expertise and focus on accounting process consistency within all areas to ensure accurate and reliable financial reporting. Furthermore, you will be expected to challenge and advise internal stakeholders to improve the quality and efficiency of the financial controlling environment - including reporting, planning and decision-making. You will also be working closely together with our mother company, Equinor, as well as various internal and external stakeholders.

Your future team mates are experienced with a wide range of competencies centralised around financial reporting. They will provide you with collegial inspiration in an environment where responsibility and professionalism have a high priority.

Your journey at Danske Commodities
You will spend the first months getting to know the company, our business activities and reporting processes. Here, you will be a part of the establishment of an improved control environment. In addition, you will take part in our monthly group reporting to Equinor. After a few months, you will also be involved in our IFRS implementation process, which we are going to start soon. As you become more confident in our business model, you will on-board new business activities and secure alignment with our front office, auditors and Equinor.

The right candidate for this position is confident and enthusiastic - and can add value to the business on a professional and personal level. You have a focus on collaboration, supporting others and, not least, want to have fun in your daily work.

The dynamic nature of the company ensures a continuous inflow of new challenging tasks, so we continuously need to keep broadening our specialised knowledge.
