Our strategy is underpinned by our core values honesty, integrity and respect for people and focus on safety.

We are looking to build a diverse team with complementary skill sets to scale the certificates trading business.

  • Maintain a collaborative relationship with internal customers, support functions and control functions by ensuring seamless business operations.
  • Contribute to the value of creative ideas on customer products, portfolio optimization, arbitrage opportunities and proprietary trading.

What we need from you

We would love you to have previous experience in electricity certificates (ROC, REGO, GOO and/or I-REC) however, we are open to experience in electricity certificates from other markets as well as experience in carbon trading. It would also be great if you also had some of the below experience:
  • Proven track record in trading and managing risk
  • Data and fundamentals driven trading decision making
  • Deep understanding of regulations in the markets we operate
  • Demonstrable ability to quantify the value/risk of deals including credit, finance and options
