Hamburg, Germany

Business-savvy student employee for our German office

Are you a structured go-getter with a commercial mindset? And can you see yourself as part of a business team dedicated to pushing the energy transition forward? Danske Commodities is one of the leading energy trading companies in Europe, and right now we are looking for a student employee to support us with various tasks surrounding our customer activities.

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 8500 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. You will join the customer-facing unit in DC; the Origination team is the link between Physical Asset Management and Trading on one hand and Business Relationship Management on the other hand. As the link to our customers (energy producers like wind farms and solar parks), you will conduct analyses, assist with development of new business strategies, connect supply and demand by being on top of regulatory changes and help market our products and services.

Dedicated profile with a high drive and career ambitions

No matter you level of experience, we will ensure you get a solid onboarding. Based on your personal appetite for professional development, this role entails many opportunities for growth within DC. So, if you are up for it, we will provide you with the foundation to realise your career aspirations. Starting out, you will get a thorough introduction to the team, your tasks and our business principles. Your first assignment will be to get introduced to our customer base, the onboarding process and your stakeholders. Together with your colleagues, you will prepare the customer base for the next years, according to the commercial arrangements. On the long-term, you will be the commercial focal point towards our customers, including asset owners and industrials.

We offer great flexibility on work setup and invite you to work from home and/or from our office in Hamburg.

Being part of our German renewable asset management operations, you will nurture our most important asset – our customers
