Gas trader

Would you like to kickstart your career in a global energy trading company? As our new trader for our short-term gas trading team, you will gain valuable insights into tradable commodity markets and contribute directly to the performance of the team.
Short-Term Gas Trading & Operations at Danske Commodities (DC)
You will join our Short-Term Gas Trading & Operations team that works with maximising value in the (sometimes very) volatile short-term gas markets. We combine a data-driven approach with an efficient setup that integrates trading and operations, making us well-positioned to capture opportunities and restore energy balances close to delivery. We trade 24/7 every day of the year and always seek to grow our presence within natural gas. And with Equinor in our corner, we have the necessary financial capacity to enter new markets.

You will join a committed team of people who are in it to win it – together. With five different nationalities and an average age under 30, the team is young and international. We are known for our team spirit, great collaboration and unity. This is important as we are highly dependent on each other.

Your journey as our new gas trader
No matter your level of experience and your educational background, we will make sure you get a thorough introduction to the team, your tasks and our general trading setup. You will be assigned a mentor, who will make sure that you are integrated into our team and prepare you for performing the tasks at hand. In time, we hope that you will bring your ideas and input to the table in terms of how we can improve our day-to-day activities. As the gas team in general has a very broad reach of various business activities, there are a lot of opportunities for further career development – either at DC or at our parent company, Equinor.
