IT SOX Com­pli­an­ce Officer

Are you structured by nature and do you thrive with responsibility? Can you see yourself work closely with critical IT project deliveries to ensure compliance? Then you might be the perfect fit for our new IT SOX Compliance Officer.  

Danske Commodities – one of Europe’s leading energy trading companies 

Danske Commodities (DC) is an energy trading company that specialises in short-term power and gas trading and offers balancing, optimisation and hedging services to energy producers and suppliers. Every day, we complete more than 5750 trades across 39 countries, constantly moving energy from where there is more than needed to where it is needed most. Backed by an energy major, we are a wholly-owned subsidiary to Norwegian energy company Equinor, operating under our own name and brand.

Internal control in DC – SOX  

As our parent company Equinor is listed on the New York Stock Exchange, the entire group, including subsidiaries, must 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 our new IT SOX Compliance Officer, you will be part of a small SOX team lead by our SOX Officer. Your focus will be to ensure SOX compliance for all the IT controls in DC. Overall, you will be part of our IT & Finance unit. Your new colleagues are dedicated and highly skilled specialists with a passion for maturing and automating our business and control processes.  

Your way into the role as responsible for our IT SOX compliance setup 

We imagine that you have experience as an internal or external auditor or as a consultant, who is now looking for a new career opportunity where you will have great responsibility and the opportunity to impact the direction of our internal SOX control setup including systems and processes. Starting out, you will get a thorough introduction to the team, your tasks and our SOX setup at DC, and you will then be onboarded in our SOX related systems and business processes. You will gradually take over the coordination of all SOX related activities from the stakeholders in our IT unit. The first milestone will be to get a complete overview of our current control setup. Within the first 3-6, months, the goal is that you are able to plan, execute and follow up on a quarterly test execution, including walk-though with external auditors.
