Assist companies in increasing their financial flexibility

Atradius is looking for an expert in risk analysis of financial statements. Preferably someone with a natural interest in economic developments and trends enjoying discussing complex risk issues with a forward-looking view.

As Senior Underwriter Bonding/Guarantees you become member of the Nordic Financial Underwriting team. Atradius is known to be an international provider of bonds and guarantees with outstanding local service orientation. As Senior Underwriter you become member of a two-person team located in Copenhagen ensuring the local Danish expertise while referring to the Northern Europe Financial Underwriting Manager. You will be responsible for reviewing an existing bonding portfolio of customers as well as requests from prospects, primarily within construction. Doing that, you will be assessing both the technical risk (performance) as well as the credit risk (solvency and cash-flow) and conduct financial and credit underwriting in bonding for businesses related to your portfolio. You will be applying underwriting principles and procedures to support new risks or modify existing strategies related to bonding customers. To support your assessment of risk and inform your decision making, you will be conducting financial and industry sector analyses and importantly pro-actively be collecting relevant information in direct contact with key stakeholders also at management level from a broad range of Danish companies.

Analytical financial professional with strong diplomatic skills

You may hold a degree in finance, economics, insurance or another relevant field. More importantly, you have experience with conducting risk analysis of complex financial statements – preferably working with B2B underwriting. Consequently, you have experience in analysing financial, trade and sales data, and you know how to transform these into risk analysis and sufficient bases for decision making. It will be an advantage if you are familiar with the construction or manufacturing sector. You possess great analytical, negotiation and communication skills and enjoy discussing complex risk issues with a forward-looking view. It is key that you feel comfortable making decisions which balance out between risk and income, while defending an outspoken risk acceptance strategy often in dynamic situations entailing an element of uncertainty.

You have a curious mind and have a good understanding of the Danish, Nordic and international economy and the ability to interpret trends. You understand the credit and financial risk originating from a customer’s business model and you have a good understanding of Credit Insurance or Bond products or possess the readiness to quickly acquire it. You are fluent in both written and spoken English and Danish and you find it intriguing managing multiple stakeholders in a cross-cultural environment.

Become member of an international team with in-depth market knowledge

At Atradius, there is a strong local commitment and drive to develop the solutions customers need. Atradius has a mantra of conscientiousness. Meaning that they stand by their word and take it very seriously when talking about being customer centric. You will find that there is a great deal of freedom and flexibility. You become part of an experienced international team with a unique level of business insight. Responsibility, courage and helpfulness are key words when working together at Atradius. The salary package will be negotiated individually according to qualifications and includes, among other things, basic salary, pension, bonus and opportunity for continued education. The workplace will be at Atradius Denmark's office in Copenhagen.
