Senior Group Financial Controller for experienced finance team

Would you like to join a Finance department in a company on a global quest? And are you ready to be challenged as part of an experienced Finance team with a dynamic culture? Then you might be our new Senior Group Financial Controller.

Join a specialised team with wide-ranging skill sets

Danske Commodities (DC) is an energy trading company. 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. We are a wholly-owned subsidiary to Norwegian energy major Equinor, operating under our own name and brand. 

In Group Financial Controlling, we have the responsibility for all financial reporting towards executive management, the parent company Equinor and external stakeholders. At the same time, we act as internal advisors when onboarding new products and entering new market areas. You will join a team with experienced colleagues with a wide range of competencies centralised around financial reporting. We always encourage knowledge sharing and collegial inspiration as we operate in an environment where responsibility and professionalism have a high priority. Furthermore, we have a strong focus on collaboration, supporting each other and, not least, having fun in our daily work.

An opportunity to share your expertise and develop your skills further in a global setting

As Senior Group Financial Controller, you will get the opportunity to contribute with your expertise on financial reporting to ensure accurate and reliable financial reporting in DC’s group accounts. DC’s business model does not always fit into the IFRS standards and therefore we are continuously working with exciting and challenging tasks related to complex accounting treatment. In this position, you will also challenge and advise internal stakeholders to improve the quality, efficiency and maturity of the financial controlling environment. In addition, you will work closely together with Equinor, as well as various internal and external stakeholders to ensure alignment and establish basis for decision-making. As a colleague, we imagine that you are enthusiastic about finance and able to add value to the business.

Your journey at DC

You will spend the first months getting to know DC, our business activities and reporting processes. Here, you will be a part of our ongoing focus on improving and maturing reporting processes. In addition, you will take part in our monthly and annual group reporting towards executive management and Equinor. After a few months, you will also be involved in tasks related to DC’s ongoing globalisation and product innovation by making sure that complex accounting matters are solved. As you become more knowledgeable of our business model, you will help onboard new commercial activities and ensure alignment with our front office, external auditors and Equinor.

The dynamic nature of the company ensures a continuous inflow of new challenging tasks – and that means we need to keep broadening our specialised knowledge
