Proactive SOX officer

Do you dream of building a SOX (Sarbanes Oxley) environment from the ground up in close collaboration with the Head of Finance and relevant stakeholders? And would you like to work in a team of dedicated and experienced colleagues in a dynamic organisation? Then we have the perfect job for you as our new SOX officer.

Join one of Europe’s most successful trading companies
Danske Commodities (DC) is an energy trading company that specialises in short-term power and gas trading and offers balancing, optimisation and hedging services to energy producers and suppliers. Every day, we complete more than 5750 trades across 39 countries, constantly moving energy from where there is more than needed to where it is needed most. DC is a wholly-owned subsidiary to Norwegian energy company Equinor, which is listed on the New York Stock Exchange and we are now starting our journey to become SOX compliant. Thus, we are now looking to welcome a skilled SOX officer, who can take our internal control environment to the next level.

Take charge of DC’s SOX journey
You will join our Finance & Accounting team, which consists of 35 experienced colleagues. The team culture is characterised by high quality, innovative solutions and strong cooperation. As our new SOX officer, you will report directly to the Head of Finance & Accounting. When tackling your everyday tasks, you will have great support from your colleagues in Finance & Accounting and in collaboration with the rest of DC and our colleagues in Equinor. Furthermore, you will work closely with external consultants to ensure we meet our high requirements for quality and standards. To sum up, this is a hands-on position where you get to interact with a broad range of stakeholders in the organisation as you plan, conduct and successfully complete DC’s annual SOX compliance programme.

Your first assignments and further professional journey
Your most important job as our new SOX officer will be to initiate and coordinate DC’s journey towards being SOX compliant. To help you succeed, you will get a thorough introduction to your tasks, the company and the different processes, products and the energy business in general. Then you will analyse which initiatives to be implemented in the control environment based on SOX and secure design and implementation of the necessary controls.

Proactive and skilled communicator  
We imagine you come from a similar position or have a background in auditing with a minimum of 2-3 years’ experience. As a person, you have an eye for details, you are structured and you are curious about understanding the underlying processes for why things are done. As DC’s primary SOX specialist, you thrive working independently, but you are also outgoing and possess strong stakeholder management capabilities. To succeed in the role, it is crucial that you are passionate and understand how to communicate and implement changes.

You will get the opportunity to build a SOX environment from the ground up in close collaboration with skilled colleagues across the organisation
