Our Employer Promise
Challenging and meaningful work
With a mission to deliver world-class, customer-centric digital financial solutions, we use technology to realize our ambition to make daily banking and important financial decisions easy for our customers.
What I really enjoy about working in Danske and the financial industry are the challenges. We work with real-time transactions. This means that everything we do has a huge impact and that a slight mistake can have big consequences. Having to stay sharp and on my toes is intellectually stimulating. I have also had great support from my managers in my ambition to work towards a role as business analyst. They have really helped me believe in myself and develop the skill se necessary to flourish in my new role.

With the Agile@Scale way of working, we at Danske Bank aspire to inculcate an agile approach to our everyday work while collaborating with cross-functional teams. This in-turn enables us to develop across business to deliver the best possible solutions for our customers at greater speed.
Leaders who inspire you to succeed
Driven by 3 key essentials of the leadership model at Danske Bank, our leaders continue to inspire and motivate others to deliver excellence. We look for leaders who lead by driving customer centricity, inspiring others to succeed and role modelling our values.
Motivational and transformational conversations with different people in Danske IT tap into my core drive and interests and not just the core projects and company KPI’s. This unleashes the greatest motivation on the job and helps me be a leader — which is all about growing myself and the others together.

Good leadership is crucial to creating the cultural shift we want to see at Danske Bank: ensuring the customer is always in focus and to ensure that we work as fully engaged teams. Danske IT focuses on various leadership development programs to ensure that they and their teams are exhibiting the culture and behaviour we need to build on if we are to truly be customer centric.
A collaborative culture
Our 5 core values are expertise, integrity, value, agility and collaboration. Collaboration is a way of life at Danske IT. We are collaborative in a transparent way and firmly believe in the power of collaboration to create impactful customer journeys and a productive and pleasant working atmosphere.
Collaboration, to me is to be able to pick up the phone and ask when in doubt, raise a flag when the situation demands, draw the attention of another when needed or just go up and talk, whether locally or across borders, without having any inhibition. I am really glad to work in this sort of a culture that extends not only to my IT colleagues at various locations but to our business colleagues as well. This sense of belonging and togetherness is really important for me to do a good job.
Jayanthi Venugopal, Senior Project Manager
Our Communities of Practice (CoPs) help foster a culture of collaboration and learning in the organisation. The Business Analyst Community of Practice [BACoP) was, for example, launched to enrich Domain competency across employees in Danske IT, focusing on knowledge-sharing and capacity building initiatives.
Opportunities to develop and grow
A career at Danske IT is an opportunity to develop, grow and contribute to a culture of high ambition. Development at Danske IT is propelled by a continuous learning journey. We believe that providing opportunities for personal & professional development is the corner stone towards building an attractive workplace
Danske IT has helped me evolve from a student to a professional, constantly providing me opportunities to sharpen my skills. I remember the day I joined the organization as a Freshman, from then to now I have got a wonderful mentorship from my team members. It has always given me a new perspective and helped me keep up my steep learning curve.
