Vacancy Announcements

The Embassy of Denmark in Seoul seeks an experienced Commercial Officer within the Energy sector

Do you have a passion for clean energy mixed with a strong commercial background and diplomatic talent? The Embassy of Denmark is looking for a Commercial Officer to help shape the framework conditions for Danish energy companies, and strengthen the commercial ties between Denmark and Korea.

Focus and Responsibilities

The new Commercial Officer will join the Embassy’s team of dedicated staff and will mainly be responsible for the following areas: renewable- and bioenergy, energy efficiency, and sustainable solutions. You will be joining a commercial-team, which is deeply engaged in the energy sector. Denmark has longstanding ties with Korea on climate and energy in the bilateral Green Growth Alliance and both countries are P4G-partners. Your job will be to strengthen this relationship by building commercial relations- and projects between the Danish private- and public sector and their Korean counterparts.


Commercial Officers are the Embassy’s main source of knowledge and network within their respective sectors of responsibility. As such, Commercial Officers must be kept informed about relevant developments in the sector. Further, you should develop and maintain an active network with key Korean authorities, decision makers and Korean companies in these areas, as well as plan and carry out individual consulting services to Danish companies. We expect you to be a strong team-player and have the ability to work across divisions and areas of responsibilities.


In providing consulting services to Danish companies, each commercial officer has to reach individual yearly income and satisfaction targets. Commercial Officers are therefore expected to be very independent and proactive in identifying relevant opportunities, report on these to the Danish business community as well as to promote and sell Embassy consulting services. This work will be carried out on several levels by implementing business cases, conducting round-tables, business travels to Denmark and within Korea, navigating with various stakeholders, arranging seminars, and high-level visits.


Requirements and working conditions

The Embassy of Denmark is looking to employ a full time Commercial Officer (37.5 hours per workweek in average). Prior working experience and deep understanding of these areas is therefore a clear advantage.


Candidates must be independent, outgoing, highly motivated and have strong oral and written presentation skills in both Korean and English.

The Embassy is looking to fill the vacancy by December 1st. Deadline for submission of applications is September 25th 2020. We encourage applications from all backgrounds, communities and industries, and are committed to having a team that is made up of diverse skills, experiences, and abilities. We are committed to equality and diversity within our workforce.


Please send your CV and letter of motivation in English by e-mail to the embassy to and indicate “VACANCY” in the mail title.
