You will learn how the GB electricity and gas markets operate, understand how trading is used to stabilise revenue, all while developing your knowledge across many different disciplines, working for a company at the forefront of tackling climate change; currently building with worlds biggest offshore windfarm, developing carbon capture/storage project for sustainable flexible generation and exploring opportunities for natural energy storage, building on our heritage in hydro electric power.

The working hours of this role are 07:00-15:30 to align with energy market opening hours.

What do I need?

You will know your way around a spreadsheet, have an eye for detail and have the ability to understand and model complex processes. You will have good interpersonal skills in order to work collaboratively with a wide range of internal and external stakeholders. A working knowledge of Python & SQL would useful but not essential.
