About you

You have a Master in Finance combined with a couple of years of experience from a finance role. Or you have just graduated and are ready for your first full-time position. Most important is that you are a quick learner and that you are willing to move fast. As you will be working with a number of different stakeholders, you need to have a strong cooperative nature and an appetite on working in an international business environment. Furthermore, you are always willing to take up news tasks – from complex ones to very hands-on day-to-day tasks. As a true relationship builder you are capable of balancing networking with a clear focus on execution and progress on our operational agendas. And not least, you have a firm systems toolbox with outstanding skills in Excel and BI systems and potentially Power BI.


For the right candidate, this is a unique opportunity to build a platform based on which you can grow into a position in one of our regions or markets across the globe.
