How can we do this even better

At Energi Danmark we have more employees who have started as student employees or who have written their thesis with us. It is always a pleasure when they want to continue their journey with us. One of them is Mathias Jørgensen who went from Student Assistant to Junior Trade Supporter.

Position: Junior Trade Supporter

Education: Cand. Merc. Finance, Aarhus University

Employed since: March 2017

My Journey

- I started as student employee in Trade Support in March 2017. I was searching for a relevant part time job to match my studies and Energi Danmark seemed like the place to be. Very quickly, I experienced how my education could come into play, which I found very rewarding.

- My time as a student employee at Energi Danmark has furthermore helped shape my education to suit my current role in the organisation, for instance by inspiring me to take electives in coding languages as VBA and R. When I finished my studies in June 2018, I was happy that I could continue in Energi Danmark and keep learning and developing in my new role as Junior Trade Supporter.

What I do

- As Junior Trade Supporter, I am primarily working with optimisation and automation of processes across the different Trading departments. In Trade Support, we are the link between the departments and I am in contact with many colleagues during the day, which contributes in creating a great work relationship across Trading as a whole. I really enjoy my role as an optimiser, which both requires me to have an overview and understanding of all relevant processes related to trading electricity, while simultaneously allowing me to dig into very specific parts of the different systems.

When I started my studies in 2013, I had never thought of the possibility of working in the energy industry, but working at Energi Danmark has definitely widened my horizon and shown me many new possibilities for my future career.

My inspiration for applying at Energi Danmark

- Actually, I knew very little about Energi Danmark and the energy industry in general before applying for the job as student assistant. However, I was very curious to learn and with a thorough introduction from my colleagues, I quickly learned how the industry and business worked. When I started my studies in 2013, I had never thought of the possibility of working in the energy industry, but working at Energi Danmark has definitely widened my horizon and shown me many new possibilities for my future career.

Why I wanted to become a full time employee

- I really enjoy that my qualifications and educational background match my job, and I like how my work contributes in creating optimisation and efficiency. It is exciting to keep asking the question, how can we do this even better?
