Tech-interested profile for IT compliance

Are you curious by nature? Do you have an IT technical understanding? And would you like to work in a critical IT compliance team ensuring license to operate? Then you might be our new colleague for IT SOX Compliance.
Internal IT control at Danske Commodities – Sarbanes Oxley (SOX)
Danske Commodities (DC) is a wholly-owned subsidiary to Norwegian energy company Equinor, which is listed on the New York Stock Exchange. As such, the entire Equinor group, including subsidiaries, needs to be SOX compliant. SOX is an internal control structure that includes all relevant policies, procedures and operating principles in the company. It is short for the Sarbanes-Oxley act from 2002 – an act that institutionalises transparency in financial reporting for companies listed in the US and aims at increasing investor confidence in these companies. As a financial control organ, SOX is highly dependent on our IT controls serving as a fundamental component to be SOX compliant.

Join a team of innovative and open-minded people
You will join our IT SOX Compliance team whose overall goal is to continue keeping DC SOX compliant within IT. We are the link to our internal and external auditors and make sure that their requests and comments are properly handled. By continuously optimising and automating both processes and systems, we strive to improve the quality of the SOX controls and decrease the manual input required from the business. We have our own bespoke SOX compliance software suite that we continuously enhance to provide better quality and add more automation in the execution of IT controls. You will join a team of innovative and open-minded people who are always going for the long-term solution and take a holistic approach to our IT landscape and processes.

Your journey as our new IT SOX architect
No matter your level of experience, you will get a thorough introduction to DC, the team and your tasks, including an introduction to DC’s IT landscape as well as how we work with SOX. To begin with, you will be working with our current roadmap of changes to our compliance software suite and the planning of our next-coming control execution round. Down the road, you will be part of setting the direction for the future of the team. We highly prioritise people development at DC, and we offer the opportunity for you to take on other responsibilities as you develop in the role.

You will play a vital role in securing our license to operate!

  • have an interest in IT and the field of IT compliance; your background is not essential – curiosity within the field is
