Sharp economist with an interest in traffic and economics for the Danish Road Directorate

Are you interested in creating value for society, and do you have an interest in the interplay between traffic, mobility and the economy? If so, then this position might be for you.

“With us, your work will shape tomorrow’s policy in traffic and infrastructure. Among other things, you must help ensure that decisions on billion-dollar investments are made on an informed basis. ” initiates department manager Andreas Egense.

Transport policy includes major economic decisions. Being able to transport people and goods easily and safely forward is a benefit to society. But with increasing traffic also comes a number of problems. We are looking for a colleague who can strengthen the department’s financial competencies and perhaps in the long run become our economics lighthouse.

You will play an important role in the development and use of the methods and tools we use to assess the traffic, socio-economic and financial consequences. They are central when making decisions about investing in new traffic infrastructure or introducing other regulations that affect traffic.

  • You may be involved in analyzes that answer questions such as:
  • Is it a good idea to build a bridge over the Kattegat and can it be financed by the users?
  • What traffic, socio-economic and distributional consequences will there be if we introduce road pricing in Denmark?
  • How will the business community in Southern Jutland be affected if a bridge is built between Funen and Als?
  • Where should the charging infrastructure stand if we are to have the most green conversion possible for the money?

You will have access to a large selection of data sources, competent colleagues and a strong external network to help you answer the questions.

Sharp professional competencies – experienced or newly graduated
You are first and foremost sharp and have strong professional competencies based on a relevant financial education.

In addition, we expect you to:

  • Can extract the essence from data and communicate the conclusions in a way that can be understood by people outside your field.
  • Has an interest in traffic, including what drives the traffic and what impact the traffic has on the economy.
  • Is motivated to work with colleagues and others who have a different professional background than yourself – including external parties such as researchers, consultants and other authorities.

Relevant work experience, including possibly with project management, is a plus, but not a requirement. Graduates are also encouraged to apply for the position.

Welcome to Transport Analysis
“We are interested in complex issues and professionally based solutions, but we are not least concerned with making a difference – we also hope that you are,” Andreas concludes.

We offer a good and challenging workplace, where the work takes place in a professional and unpretentious environment. You will be part of the Transport Analysis department, where you will have 20 committed and skilled colleagues who range widely in relation to age and professional background. We are i.a. engineers, economists, geographers and planners.

Salary and terms of employment
You are employed and remunerated in accordance with the AC agreement, with the possibility of negotiating supplements. Depending on qualifications and experience, it is possible to hire a specialist consultant.

Your area of ​​employment will be the Ministry of Transport with the institutions belonging to it at any given time. The place of employment is the Danish Road Directorate in the Department of Transport Analysis, Carsten Niebuhrs Gade 43, 1577 Copenhagen V.
