LOOKING FOR A REAL CHALLENGE?
You’ve always had an analytical mind and superb mathematical instincts. You can’t rest until you solve the puzzle, clear the level, or beat the opponent. Want a job that not only celebrates these traits, but rewards them? Become a Junior Energy Trader. This high-pressure environment is the perfect place to turn your innovative instincts into huge opportunities.
GRASP THE OPPORTUNITY
You’ve probably never heard of the power markets. You likely didn’t know that energy is traded on an exchange. No matter. If you’re interested, and you have what it takes, we’ll teach you everything you need to know about making the market your playground.
If we recognise the traits of a trader in you, we’ll start you as a Trading Assistant. You’ll sit side-by-side with a seasoned trader, who will turn your natural talents into distinct skills. Learn what factors drive the market, and how to use those factors to make the biggest impact. Love working with models? Great. Because we’ll expect you to work with the team to optimise our trading models and strategies.
Once you’ve mastered the fundamentals of power trading, we’ll put you to work on the Western European market. Every day will be a challenge. You’ll push yourself to the absolute limit. Your goal? Outperform this competitive market and beat the system.
The challenges? As countries switch from coal, oil and gas to wind, water and sunlight to power their grids, the markets change. Competition gets fiercer, volatility increases and opportunities get bigger. And what about wind, water and solar energy? No one can precisely forecast how much there will actually be. So we’ll teach you how to read the signs, make predictions, and use your analytical skills to take calculated risks that come with tangible rewards.
