You will be based at our office in Gentofte near Copenhagen. However, you should expect some travelling in relation to your work.

Areas of responsibility
Together with your colleagues, you will initiate and lead strategic projects throughout the organisation, including the annual strategy process. Moreover, you will develop new business opportunities for our organisation and more generally support your business partners across the entire organisation.

Furthermore, your key duties will be to:
  • analyse information from various specialist units and from external business partners and translate this into robust strategy recommendations
  • lead cross-organisational strategic business development projects
  • prepare presentations and provide market intel to executive management.

Your profile

You have a relevant financial, business or engineering background, eg a master of science degree or an education at a level corresponding to the Danish educations cand.merc., cand.polyt. or similar.

Furthermore, you have experience either from a leading management consultancy firm or from strategy development at an international level, eg in a C20 company.

You have successfully lead projects across a large organisation, and you will be able to identify, analyse and facilitate discussions with your stakeholders. Further, you should be able to build positive business relationships.

Strong analytical, logical and quantitative skills and the ability to translate complex problems into clearly defined goals are important key competences to succeed in this role.

It is essential that you have strong communication skills and are able to convey messages clearly to top management, colleagues and other stakeholders at various organisational levels. Moreover, you speak and write English fluently, enabling you to navigate in an international environment with various business partners.

You will also be a super-user of Microsoft PowerPoint and as a minimum have user knowledge of Excel.

In addition, you have a self-driven and result-oriented approach to your tasks combined with the ability to create results both independently and as a member of a team. As our work load varies, it is essential that you have a flexible approach to your working hours.

We offer
A unique and challenging job in a value-based organisation, entailing substantial freedom with responsibility and good opportunities for developing new competences as well as the opportunity to pursue a career within a large international organisation. You will be part of a dynamic and ambitious team focusing on coaching, personal development, individual responsibility, a high competence level, team spirit and an informal tone.

In DONG Energy Thermal Power, we have a high level of expertise and many complex and challenging work tasks.
