Vacancy

Executive assistant

Do you have a commercial mindset? Would you like to work with executive-level strategic projects in a global energy company? And can you see yourself as a trusted sparring partner to the leadership group in one of Europe’s best trading teams? Then you might be the candidate we are looking for to become the new executive assistant to our Vice President, Head of European Gas Trading
European Gas Trading at Danske Commodities (DC)
At DC, we have built a tech-driven gas trading setup with a scalable business model that allows us to continuously add new products and grow our market presence. And with Equinor in our corner, we have the necessary financial capacity to break down the door to new markets, add scale and take on more business with stronger credit lines and an increased mandate. This also enables our work to contribute to the energy transition by making it a viable business.

As part of the team, you will experience a high degree of flexibility and responsibility, working side by side with innovative energy professionals from all over the world – more than 50% of our people in the team have international backgrounds. We enjoy a very open and inclusive culture where we look after each other. And we always make sure to have fun as we go along.

Your journey as our new executive assistant
Starting out, you will get an introduction to DC, our gas trading setup, our strategy and your stakeholders. Your first task will be to become acquainted with our two gas sub-teams (digitalisation and trading). Also, you will support the VP and the leadership group in Gas with various presentations and projects. On the longer term, you will grow into a role in which you will focus on strategic portfolio management and business, working under the guidance of the Senior Portfolio Manager to gain fundamental gas know-how.
