Job Description

Are you a data analytics buff? Are you also passionate about people and organisation? Are you interested in bringing these two concepts together? This is what we like to call … People Analytics!

We are looking for a student worker to join our People Analytics & Data Management team, which sits in the Group HR function.

To assist our People Analytics & Data Management team, and certainly our global HR organisation, we are currently on the lookout for a student worker who is ready to take on true responsibility, fuse together their passion for data analytics and people, and thereby deliver powerful results.

If you want a student job that is relevant to your education, where you will work with stakeholders all over the world and contribute to strategic HR projects using data-driven insights, then keep on reading because you might just be the person we are looking for.


Our team works in collaboration with many parts of the organization, including our business segments, regions, and other Group functions to deliver data and analytics with a high level of integrity and validity.

Our ambition is to convey ideas and knowledge through data-driven insights, using SuccessFactors reports, PowerBI dashboards, and advanced analytics. Our philosophy is to have a Single Source of Truth for Danfoss people data and to be business and user focused.

As a student worker in our small but mighty and multicultural team of five people, you will be reporting to Carley – Senior Specialist, People Analytics.

Besides governing the HR Data Model and building reports, our team drives the data side of strategic HR projects, such as Succession Planning, Equitable Practices, and ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) topics, by applying our advanced modelling toolbox to capture insights and identify trends that directly shape the Danfoss people strategy (Foundation 2025), targets, and KPIs – this is where you will thrive.

Job Responsibilities

Your main task will be to support the team on a variety of strategic projects, such as Succession Planning, Equitable Practices, and ESG topics, as well as have responsibilities on recurrent and ad hoc tasks. More specifically, you will:
•    apply advanced data analysis techniques to discover, interpret, visualise, and story-tell your findings in a clear, concise, and effective way to drive strategic decisions and outcomes,
•    validate HR KPIs which are reported in dashboards,
•    document definitions of people data and data quality measures,
•    join us as we have dialogues with our stakeholders,
•    and some other cool tasks!

We will help you navigate the complex landscape in which we work to ensure that your experience as a student worker (and key player in our team) is top-notch and that you can perform at your highest potential, while learning and expanding your toolbox.

Background & Skills

We are looking for a student who is ready to take on new challenges in a complex organization. We are not picky about which education you are currently pursuing, as long as you know a thing or two about data analytics and can work and communicate within a diverse, global organization. We will teach you the rest, and maybe you can teach us a little something along the way too.

You consider yourself a top performer at university or your current job. Like we said, we are not picky, so we can honestly say that we do not care about the scores you have received in school. Rather, we care about your ambition and your ability to work in a team. You are looking for a place to work where you can learn by doing, get exposure to a truly global organisation, and put your expertise to work to contribute to the Danfoss people strategy.

•    You are currently studying a relevant university degree, e.g., in engineering or business analytics, and on the final year of your master’s degree.
o    A specific interest in mathematical modelling, data science, HR, or DE&I would not hurt.
•    You are flexible with your schedule and can work a minimum of 12 hours per week. And, of course, we are flexible around your exams, etc..
•    You know your way around Excel, PowerPoint, perhaps even PowerBI, and ideally have experience with programming in Python and utilizing Jupyter Notebooks. As a bonus, you have experience with R, Julia, or other data analysis tools.
•    You have strong English skills, as this is the official company language of Danfoss.



•    You will be based at our office in central Copenhagen. However, we do offer a flexible working set-up.


Now what?

Skip the cover letter, but be sure to include the following with your CV:
•    A few words about yourself
•    Why do you want to work with us?
•    Your university transcripts


When can you start? We could be happy to welcome you to our team from July 2024.

If you have any questions, please send a text to Carley at +45 40115552, with the text “Student Worker, People Analytics” + your name, and she will get back to you as soon as possible. If you prefer to call, feel free – Carley might be nice enough to pick up the phone for a chat.
