Maersk Line is special, and as an economist with an interest in global finance and trade the Finance Track in the Maersk Line Graduate Programme was the only one Mette Asmussen applied for. A choice she is very satisfied with as she has, since starting at Maersk in 2014, learned to apply the skills she learned at university to a job that has a direct financial impact on Denmark’s largest company.
The Maersk Line Graduate Programme takes two years to complete and includes two job rotations. Mette started as an associated Financial Controller and is now a Financial Analyst in the Trade and Marketing department where she analyses data on the Maersk Line trade lanes – the routes Maersk vessels routinely sail around the globe.
Analysing the future – and the past
Mette’s focus is business performance and bringing structured data to support decisions in the business. That includes being a link between the Finance department and business and ranging from tasks completed in a few hours and longer running projects.
