Chief Consultant – Strategy & Concepts, Business Development
Are you a talented consultant with a strategic and analytical mindset? Moreover, can you utilize your project management skills and experience from the consulting world to assist Danske Bank’s Wealth Management Business Unit in achieving their ambitious goals?
Early 2016 Danske Bank decided to establish a new business unit, Wealth Management, which encompasses the Group’s expertise within pension savings and wealth and asset management. Wealth Management Business Development is responsible for making sure that Wealth Management can face the strategic challenges in the form of changed customer behavior, digitalization, regulation, price pressure, new competition and low interest rates. The Strategy & Concepts team that you will join is responsible for developing the strategy for the entire wealth area, including working on our overall value propositions for different customer segments.
As a challenger on the Swedish market, Danske Bank is characterized by an entrepreneurial and innovative mindset. We are looking for employees who always strive to develop themselves and our organization. If you enjoy challenges and constantly want to develop your career, we offer you a high level of responsibility, as well as an inspiring team and committed managers who encourage you to grow. We offer you an inclusive work environment where you will contribute to our success, today and in the future.
Strategy from planning to execution
As our Chief Consultant you will work primarily with strategy projects relating to Wealth Management. This is a broad responsibility and this scope will cover multiple customer segments. You will be expected to drive projects from the initial planning to implementation phases, conduct analyses, make recommendations, and manage a variety of stakeholders.
Proactive consultant with strong project management skills
To thrive in this role we believe you are strong project manager with business acumen and a unique ability to understand, motivate and involve your stakeholders. Perhaps you have worked as a management consultant in one of the major consulting firms or perhaps your experience comes from a role as in-house consultant in a large international organization similar to Danske Bank.
What matters most is that you are self-motivated with a high level of commitment and a desire for facilitating change. You enjoy working with both designing strategy as well as implementing strategy.
On a more personal level, you come across as an easygoing individual with a positive can-do attitude.
• Significant experience within financial services, consulting or similar
• Presentation skills (to senior management and other key stakeholders)
• Broad understanding of banking products, services and channels
• The “ideal” candidate would have sound knowledge of the financial services industry

• Good stakeholder management
• Problem solving – holistic view
• Motivated and self-directed
• Flexible and willing to contribute in a variety of areas and roles
