Compliance & GDPR Professional

Compliance & GDPR Professional

Do you want to make a difference and help us shape a sustainable future and drive the green energy transition in Denmark and internationally? Then you may be the person we are seeking. We work every day to make an impact that matters, and if you have the same passion for green energy, we invite you to join us on this green energy transition journey.

We are seeking an ambitious colleague with skills within compliance and GDPR. You have a Master of Laws degree and have good interpersonal skills and hands-on legal experience.

The legal team and who we seek

You will join a strong professional Legal team, and you will be based in Copenhagen.

The Legal team in Better Energy consists of 20 dedicated individuals with different areas of expertise within real estate, contracts, financing, M&A and corporate, regulatory & compliance and employment law.

The team supports the business across the entire integrated value chain from the initial phase of securing rights to land, obtaining rights, construction, procurement, financing, to the operational phase of our projects and across all countries that we are working in and in new potential markets. We put our hearts and souls into the things we do, and we are proud of the impact we have and bring to the green transition. We take a serious and dedicated approach to the work we do, but at the same time we have an informal tone, we love to laugh, we share experience and thoughts, and we pull together while chasing deadlines and deliveries in order to achieve the goals of Better Energy.

Working in Better Energy’s Legal department you will work together with leading lawyers and legal professionals in the business, share experience and knowledge as you would in larger law firms, but simultaneously be included in the essential commercial/legal interconnection and decision makings you would not otherwise be exposed to.

In order to add value to our Legal department, you are able to work independently and deliver within tight deadlines. You bring the ability and willingness to adapt to any changes of task priorities in your everyday work life, and you are positive, innovative and solution-oriented in your approach to any assignment. You want to establish positive and productive relations with your colleagues and external partners. We have a dynamic work culture with short decision-making processes, so you will have the opportunity to influence and develop your own tasks and responsibilities.

You can help us make an impact by:

  • Assisting, guide and being responsible for developing and running the compliance and GDPR function in Better Energy.
  • Assisting Better Energy regarding ESG, Future Fit and other related matters.
  • Working together with our Project Management Office regarding the interaction between risk & compliance.
  • Negotiating, drafting and commenting on compliance and GDPR matters in contracts etc.
  • Acting as advisor to all compliance and GDPR matters in the Better Energy group including advise to the management and board.
  • Stay up to date of legislative and regulatory requirements.

  • Stakeholder management and contact with (legal) advisers, consultants, and relevant authorities in Denmark and abroad.
