Application period has expired.

Advance your career and global network by joining the Network Management & Partner Banks’ team (NM&PB).

NM&PB is a buy-side function responsible for acquiring international cash clearing and securities services from third parties across the world, in order to ultimately serve the international requirements of the Danske Bank Group and its clients in these areas.

We are responsible for selecting and closely managing the relationship with the several banks and other key financial infrastructure providers that serve us in 70+ markets/currencies.

We are looking for a new colleague to join the Custody team in NM&PB.  You will build a wide ranging knowledge within securities services and custody. The team is spread across Copenhagen and Vilnius, and this role specifically is based in Vilnius.

Depending on your experience and knowledge, we may offer you a different seniority of the role.

You will:

Your mission is to develop a close working relationship with the custodians operating in a set geographic area (e.g. APAC, MEA, etc.). Custodians are responsible for the settlement and safekeeping of assets, such as bonds and equities. You will be the ‘bridge’ between the custodians and several internal stakeholders (e.g. Sales, Operations, Legal), in order to ultimate ensure:

  • Our clients are well served: you will be working closely with internal stakeholders to promote and explain our custody offering, how different markets work, and assist new business opportunities in these markets (including driving the operational process of new account openings for clients).
  • The Bank is well served: you will be responsible for keeping close oversight on the level/quality of service we receive and the fees we pay, and taking action to improve these on an on-going basis where possible. This will also include running tenders (we call these Requests for Proposals or RfPs) to review and select our provider of choice in a given market.
  • Risks are understood and managed: you will learn the risks associated in each market or with certain custodians, and ensure these are raised and mitigated as best possible. Furthermore, we have a regulatory responsibility to undertake due diligence on all our custodians annually.

About you:

Network Management roles are really wide ranging in nature, due to the number of markets, providers, stakeholders and topics we get involved and learn about. The people in the team come from different backgrounds and we believe a group of individuals with different strengths and experiences can really make the overall team stronger.

We are looking for someone with excellent relationship management / stakeholder management skills and a desire to put those skills to use with a large number of external and internal stakeholders. Clearly some knowledge of custody or securities services and experience from the financial services industry would be very welcome, but there are plenty more areas that would still bring great value and knowledge to the team.

Additional skills:

  • Excellent communication and English language skills (written and verbal)
  • Have a flair for understanding the bigger picture and at the same time can zoom in to identify and address what is important
  • Be organized and have a systematic approach that enables you to rapidly understand and work with multiple tasks
  • Be proactive and independent in driving things
  • Be client-focused and have a “can-do” attitude to achieve the best results
  • Be curious and keen to build knowledge around industry trends
  • Background or knowledge of custody and/or securities services or transaction banking (preferred but not essential)

Looking forward to welcoming you to our Network Management & Partner Banks team!
