Structured business developer for global energy trading projects

Are you looking for an opportunity to work at the forefront of renewable energy projects and strategic business development? And would you like to apply your problem-solving skills in an international setting together with highly skilled energy professionals, supporting one of the world’s largest energy companies? Then you might just be the colleague we are looking for to join our Global Business Development team!
Global Business Development at Danske Commodities
You will join our Global Business Development team that drives the global expansion of Danske Commodities’ (DC) business model and provides strategic and commercial advisory to our parent company Equinor, one of the world’s largest energy companies. In a strategic context, we shape DC’s future business opportunities and seek to optimise the value of Equinor’s transition to renewable energy and low-carbon solutions.

As our new business developer, you will join a team of motivated and curious change-makers. Our team comprises diverse profiles and competencies, united by a common goal to shape the future of renewable energy trading. As a team, we can work on independent projects, but we also enjoy working together – both within the team and with our stakeholders in DC and Equinor. We operate at lot like a team of in-house strategy consultants, collaborating with our trading teams across Europe, Brazil, Asia-Pacific and the US to solve complex business problems. In the team, we enjoy a high degree of empowerment based on mutual trust and we always seek to deliver high-quality solutions and recommendations.

Your journey towards taking the lead on global business projects
Starting out, you will get a thorough introduction to DC, our strategy, the team and your tasks. We will make sure you get a solid understanding of the projects you will be working on and the stakeholders you will be working with. During the first six months, you will be engaged in strategic projects within the team in which your role will be to ensure clear structure and alignment between stakeholders while supporting the project development. On the longer term, you will take the lead on driving strategic initiatives related to DC’s global expansion. In other words, you will play an integral role in identifying and developing new global business opportunities for DC in close collaboration with the various trading teams as well as Equinor.
