Originator for growing biomethane business

Are you passionate about origination? Are you a biomethane expert or do you dream of becoming one? Right now, we are looking for an energy specialist, who is ready to take Danske Commodities’ biomethane business to the next level.

Danske Commodities – one of Europe’s leading energy 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. Backed by an energy major, we are a wholly-owned subsidiary to Norwegian energy company Equinor, operating under our own name and brand.

Origination at DC – linking the business with its customers
Origination is part of DC’s Global Trading & Market Development and we are here to shape the future of energy trading. Since our inception, we have been futureproofing DC’s business through focused business development – and our mission is clear: we will expand DC’s business model globally, we will develop new markets and together with Equinor we will push the energy transition forward, starting from our home turf.

You will join the customer-facing unit in DC. As the link to our customers – among others biomethane producers, utility companies and large industrials – we conduct analyses, develop new business strategies and are responsible for selling our products and services. We offer great flexibility on work setup and invite you to work from home, on the road, from our office in Hamburg, from our headquarters in Aarhus – or maybe a mix of whatever suits you and your work flow the best. As a team, we also work from different locations and we are made of various nationalities and academic backgrounds, but what we all have in common is our instinctive understanding of market conditions, a solid business acumen and, not at least, our people skills.

Become DC’s biomethane specialist
We imagine you have 2-3 years from a similar position within the energy space. Maybe you are already an expert within biomethane, or maybe you are passionate about the energy industry and eager to develop yourself as a biomethane expert. No matter your level of expertise, you will embark on your journey in DC with a thorough introduction to the company, the Global Trading and Market Development unit and other relevant internal stakeholders – the primary focus will be on DC’s Climate Markets team, which is responsible for the biomethane business at DC. On the longer run, your main goal will be to build an attractive market position in Germany. When DC’s footprint in the Germany is established, we can build up a similar position elsewhere.
