Do you want to be part of one of the leading energy trading companies in Europe, and join the successful journey of securing and expanding the renewable energy markets in the UK?

We are looking for a Senior Originator with strong commercial drive and business purpose, who wants to join an ambitious and experienced deal-making team with a deep understanding of energy markets. In this role, you will lead and expand our relationships with renewable investors, flexible generators, corporate off-takers, and PPA supply partners within the UK market.

You will originate and negotiate physical and financial commodity agreements with both renewable generators and consumers to help accelerate the energy transition.

The Job:

  • Lead, negotiate and execute value-adding generator PPAs, corporate PPAs, corporate supply agreements, OTC energy commodity contracts, green certificates, and battery/ flexibility optimization agreements.

  • Be the key contributor to initiate and secure delivery of new origination initiatives, such as new products and structures, or new asset markets.

  • Work to develop and maintain relationships with generators, independent power producers, project developers, investors, banks, utilities/local suppliers, and corporate customers.

  • Translate observed market issues into solutions in close cooperation with the rest of the organization. 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 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.
