Careers for explorers

At Danske Commodities, we do our best to create the perfect place for visionary minds. We believe that a competitive yet supportive and international environment enables us to be the best versions of ourselves.

OUR ORGANISATION

We’ve been crowned one of Denmark’s best workplaces for several reasons. We spend our workdays in an airy new office in Denmark’s second largest city, Aarhus, and have small teams situated in London, Hamburg and Istanbul. There is a unique and palpable atmosphere in our offices characterised by the almost 300 people, who work closely together as one team. With an average age of 33 years, we are a young and dynamic company. And with colleagues from more than 25 countries, you will be part of a truly versatile workplace.

Despite our diversity, we have many things in common. Most prominently our winning mentality and the ability to see opportunities instead of limitations.

OUR BENEFITS

We are a flexible workplace that always strives to accommodate our employees and their work/life balance. Although we work hard, we also make a point out of celebrating our accomplishments. Some of the benefits we offer include:

  • Strong focus on people development
  • Lunch meetings with CEO and VP's
  • Company parties, family events, regular Friday bars, dc Sports
  • Discount schemes, mobile phone, laptop and Spotify Premium
  • Health care scheme
  • Pension counselling
  • Ergonomic furniture
  • Free breakfast, organic fruit, healthy and varied lunch from Meyer’s canteen and dinner when working late

WE ENJOY SPENDING TIME TOGETHER BEYOND WORK. REALLY!

If you ask us DC’ers why we like working at Danske Commodities, we will almost always say the same thing: the people. Or well, sometimes we may actually say the food from our Meyer’s canteen. But the reality is that we like spending time with each other both in and out of the office.

We very much enjoy celebrating (throwing great parties!) and singing along to the music at festivals such as SMUK fest and Northside. We also make the most out of the many benefits provided by DC, including season passes for Tivoli Friheden, ARoS and Moesgaard Museum.

But where you will really see our true spirit come out is during our many after-hours DC Sports gatherings. We arrange more than 50 sporting events per year, ranging from yoga to ice hockey.
