The Team

As our new Senior Transaction Manager, you will be part of our M&A and Project Financing team located in Søborg, Copenhagen.

The department is the interface of the company with the financial markets such as investors and creditors, and we develop and maintain long-term relationships and promote competitive processes.

How you will create an impact

You will take on a senior position being responsible for some dedicated M&A transactions across Europe. You will coordinate a “deal team” of four persons assigned to a project and lead the transactions, negotiations, and documentation.

  • You are fully proficient in English, oral and written, and professional in German
  • You are willing to frequently travel for work

As a person, you are friendly, curious, and outgoing. You have a commercial mindset and drive to execute complex and time constrained transactions.
