Have the commercial acumen to identify and develop potentially profitable opportunities
Take ownership and responsibility for such opportunities
Be a team player working closely with other originators and shift, short term and long-term traders and other related teams such as UK Risk
Be comfortable inter-acting and negotiating with internal and external stakeholders and other departments and regions where necessary
Be able to specify and understand analysis provided by the Valuation and Analysis team so that conclusions can be drawn

The successful candidate will be educated at least to degree level, preferably, but not necessarily, in a numerate discipline and have a good understanding of the trading landscape in GB energy markets. Additionally, experience of negotiating structured contracts and the underlying financing arrangements of energy projects will be a distinct advantage.
