Analytical Junior Commercial Business Developer with a strategic mindset

Do you thrive working independently and can you see yourself working on strategic projects in one of Europe’s leading energy trading companies? And are you looking for a student job with the opportunity to apply your analytical toolbox from university? Then you might be our new Junior Commercial Business Developer!

Commercial Business Development at Danske Commodities

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 8500 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, operating under its own name and brand.

Commercial Business Development (CBD) engages on a wide variety internal and external projects. The team facilitates, develops and assesses new commercial business opportunities with Equinor and third parties and drive projects as part of our global trading and market development strategy. Specifically, this means we take the lead on large-scale market entry projects in new regions. Additionally, we support our colleagues across DC and Equinor with advisory and analysis, like market scans for corporate strategies or new energy products for Equinor.

Become an internal consultant in a global organisation

The team consists of proactive and curious go-getters. It is a requirement that you thrive with responsibility and enjoy working both individually and together as a team. Even though we often work on projects independently, our open-minded and friendly colleagues are always willing to share their point-of-views on any DC or Equinor related topics. The different backgrounds, expertise and experiences provide a solid knowledge network within the team. We are kind of like a group of strategic consultants advising clients, who happen to be our colleagues from DC and Equinor.

A unique student job opportunity with loads of responsibility and learning opportunities

First of all, we will make sure you start out by getting a thorough introduction to DC, the team and your tasks. We will ensure you get a thorough introduction to the knowledge and skills needed to be part of the team, so you can join important projects from the get-go. During the first six months, we will ensure you gain understanding of power and climate markets, regional differences and similarities and understanding of the fundamental price drivers within energy trading. Down the road, you will initiate and execute independent projects together with stakeholders from the project team, your colleagues from CBD and sometimes on your own.

You will work at the forefront of DC’s business development and strategic must-win-battles, providing input to executive-level decision makers
