Ex­pe­ri­en­ced Business Analyst for top-priority IT project

Are you experienced with working in the span between IT and business? And are you looking for a new opportunity to work on a top-priority, business-critical IT project? Then you might be the new colleague we are looking for.

Business analysis at Danske Commodities

Danske Commodities (DC) is an international energy trading company. Every day, we complete more than 8500 trades across 39 countries, constantly moving energy from where there is more than needed to where it is needed most.

PMO & Business Analysis is a sub-team to within DC’s IT Projects & Portfolio Management team. We mature IT business cases and execute IT projects, which means that we are responsible for turning innovative business ideas into sustainable IT solutions that support our corporate strategy and digitalisation journey in the best way possible. Working across the full DC value chain, our business analysts play a key role in understanding the commercial rationale and defining the best-fit implementation plan given the context and requirements.

Join a team that delivers great solutions through collaboration

You will join a diverse team of eight colleagues consisting of both project managers and business analysts. You will experience a team with passion and high ambitions, working together on top-priority IT projects across the business. Our ability to align a multitude of different stakeholders around a common objective is what makes us strong and unique. And we all agree that the only way to success is through teamwork and strong collaboration with our stakeholders.

Your way to becoming a business analyst extraordinaire

Starting out, you will get a thorough introduction to the team, your tasks and our guidelines. One of the first assignments you will be connected to is our ETRM Gas project, which has the purpose of integrating our Gas business in our existing ETRM system. In this project, your main responsibility will be to drive the implementation of the solution for our middle office and back office teams. As this is a large project, you will be working together with 2-3 other business analysts, who will help get you up to speed on the project. As the project is already in progress, prior knowledge about the energy markets will be regarded as a big advantage.

"Down the road, we imagine that you will be able to capture the ideas and needs of our business, turn them into concrete IT projects, and independently take ownership of the implementation." - Simon Meyer Christiansen, Manager, Head of PMO & Business Analysis.
