Committed student employee for CEO office

Are you detail-oriented with a structured approach? Do you thrive on communicating with various stakeholders? And would you like to work closely with corporate strategy processes in a global energy trading company? If yes, yes and yes, you might be the new student employee to support our Executive Assistant to CEO!
Curious profile with an interest in executive-level strategy and leadership
As our Junior Executive Assistant, you will join an innovative and global setting as part of the CEO office at Danske Commodities (DC). On a daily basis, you will be working side-by-side with the Executive Assistant to CEO. Together, you will offer high-quality support to the CEO of DC, Helle Østergaard Kristiansen. As such, you will be working closely together with one of the most prominent executive profiles in Denmark – in fact, Helle has been named one of the world’s most influential businesswomen several times by Fortune Magazine.
