We will open for applications on February 11th and close on April 11th. Do not wait until the deadline to apply, as we contact candidates during the whole campaign. Your first day at work will be August 1st.

What is the career path/ learning opportunities in BEC?

To support your professional growth and competency development, we implemented the most effective mix of development activities:

  • Learning through experience (50-70% working with real tasks in the team.
  • Learning from others (15-30%) – seek and give feedback, join one of our CoPs, engage your mentor.
  • Traditional learning (5-20%) – attend virtual and classroom training, take a webinar and e-learning course (we offer you unlimited access to an e-learning platform with 3500+ courses from different areas).

Moreover, you will take part in the BEC Path dialog with your manager. BEC Path aims is a tool to follow up and give feedback on performance.

How many working hours and how much flexibility should I expect?

A normal working week is 36-37 hours. If you due to a business need work more hours in one week, you can save up time in an “hour bank” and take it out at a later point. The core business hours are between 9:00 and 15:00, in which we expect you to be available. Most teams work remotely 2 days weekly and on-site in Roskilde or Herning 3 days weekly.

How can I prepare myself for an interview?

During the recruitment process, we do our best to get to know you better both from an academic/technical and from a personality perspective. We want to make sure we hire top talented graduates with a high potential to grow, who share our most important values, and who want to be part of our culture.

By spending some time understanding BEC Financial Technologies before your interviews, you can show us your genuine interest. Also, we hope that you will be preparing for the tests and cases we send you during the recruitment process.

Is English/Danish required?

BEC Financial Technologies is an international company, and therefore we do expect you to be fluent in English (written and spoken). English is the organizational language used in meetings and collaboration. However, as Business Analysts often have close contact with bank representatives (our customers) Danish is required for this specific position.
