Student employee for Market Risk Management team

Would you like a student job where you get to apply your theoretical skills from university in a real-world setting? And would you like to learn from some of the most skilled people in the field of risk management? Then we might have the perfect job for you, as we are currently looking for a student employee to join our dedicated Market Risk Management team.

Join a team of dedicated risk managers
Danske Commodities is one of the leading companies within energy trading and right now, we are looking to welcome a student employee to our Market Risk Management team. Our primary responsibility is to monitor the daily trading positions and mandates given for a specific business area and at the same time perform the daily reporting of profit and loss. We serve as partners for the business teams, ensuring risk control on positions and products through profound discussions on models and risk appetite.

You will join a team of dedicated risk managers with diverse backgrounds and nationalities, all with expert knowledge of the energy sector and risk management. The way we work is characterised by working closely together across the entire Risk Management unit and as our new team player, you will be met by colleagues who are passionate about their field of expertise and who are eager to share their knowledge with you to ensure your toolbox will be as strong as possible.

Starting in Market Risk Management
Starting out, you will get a thorough introduction to the team, your tasks and our risk framework. Your first tasks will be to get familiar with our PowerBI reporting tool and support the desk risk manager with enhancements and development on a specific project. On the longer term, you will strengthen your capabilities and become responsible for your own part of our reporting process, where you will influence content, analysis and layout.

Structured and analytical colleague
We are looking for a colleague who is studying a relevant degree within Finance, Mathematics or Economics and would like practical experience with daily and monthly risk reporting, PowerBI tools and management-level risk support on various ad hoc tasks. You thrive with having responsibility and you work in a structured manner with an analytical approach. As most of our reports and tools are built in PowerBI and SQL, we are looking for a colleague who has experience with or, most importantly, is interested in learning these programmes. The reports and tasks we create and carry out are essential to our business, both in terms of quality, transparency and deadlines, which is why we are looking for a colleague, who is reliable, structured and has a keen eye for quality.
