This may include a deep knowledge of electricity grid codes, renewable energy policies for renewable power and gas, derivatives risk profiles and operational and cash flow implications of the relevant products/structures.

The Person:

  • You have multi-year experience working in energy commodity origination or renewable asset management.

  • You have a proven track record in developing and closing commodity transactions.

  • You are experienced and familiar with either all or some non-standard power contracts and preferably with long-term renewable PPAs, basic knowledge of project financing and master trade agreements.

  • You are comfortable working in a fast-paced/high-performance environment.

  • You are proficient in German and English languages.

  • You have strong sales, deal structuring, and negotiation skills, and strong stakeholder management and deal leadership skills.

  • You have renewable and/or energy wholesale market expertise, for example, wholesale market regulation, market practice for physical and financial energy trading, specific knowledge of practice and rules for renewable assets, or a strong understanding of renewable finance and corporate procurement trends.

In conclusion, be part of an organisation to drive the renewable energy revolution and contribute to a sustainable future.
