Are you an experienced energy trader looking for a new and exciting opportunity or have knowledge of power, energy or related markets and fancy the challenge of trading?

As a shift trader with our client you will be an integral part of the team. Trading in the exciting and dynamic short-term energy markets, with a focus on optimising the units, implementing your own short-term trading strategies and managing risk in order to deliver our trading tactics.

You'll be performing real time market analysis to make informed trading decisions and provide advice across the business on competitor action and market opportunities.

In this role you'll use your analytical and critical thinking skills, whilst building your commercial acumen and decision-making ability.

You'll need to be a natural team player with the ability to communicate effectively at all levels across the business. A degree level qualification in a subject matter along the lines of science, maths, economics, engineering, coupled with some working knowledge of the UK and continental power and/or gas markets is preferred.

You'll need exposure to how energy generation works and have a genuine enthusiasm for this industry which will feed your natural curiosity for knowledge.

Ultimately, you'll need to be able to make fast decisions, work independently and add value to the business with drive and determination, as well as working well in a team environment and be ready to for a new challenge.
