Our client is a leading European energy group and the 5th largest supplier of gas in the world today, with a presence in 33 countries, serving 15 million customers. The company is active in every aspect of the gas industry, from exploration and production, trading and transmission, to services, distribution and supply. Our client entered the UK gas market in 1999 and the electricity market in 2002.
This role sits within the Purchasing and Operations Department where you will provide support to the Purchasing and Operations Manager in ensuring that our client purchases enough energy to meet their customer’s current and future demands. You will be responsible for providing up to date information on the status of each customer’s position through the management, recording and reporting of relevant trading information. In addition you will be involved in delivering a hedging strategy deriving maximum value from the GDF Generation portfolio.
You will have strong administrative and analytical skills and an eye for detail as this role involves the updating and maintenance of internal trading systems, ensuring that all data is accurate and without errors. You must be numerate and will be organised and methodical in your approach to work. An ability to work on your own initiative is important as well as being proficient in your use of Excel.
Good communication skills are essential, as you will be required to liase with customers, colleagues within other departments and external agents. An understanding of both retail and wholesale gas and electricity markets would be an advantage, but is not essential.
