Junior Trader/Trading Assistant
An independent Energy Trading Company based in Milan is looking for a junior trader for its gas trading desk. Although no previous experience is required, a general understanding of the European gas market is desiderable
The candidate, accordingly to their actual experience, will ideally take care of each aspect of the trades & orders lifecycle, from the deal negotiation, to the nominations of the relevant quantities over the transportation networks.
It is understood that at the beginning they should play a central role in strengthening the middle office and back office procedures, including contract management, deal capturing, volume scheduling and credit management.
In a next step, they should be able to develop and implement basic quantitative trading strategies (taking into account the relevant drivers such as prices, volumes, temperatures… ).
Depending on their attitude they will be eventually involved in other aspects of the business (such as master agreement negotiation/collateral negotiations/regulatory analysis).
For these purposes, they should be skilled or willing to become skilled in Excel (including VBA development), Word and SQL. Whilst none of them is strictly mandatory, their knowledge will be a plus. Knowledge of financial models and/or programming languages will be greatly appreciated.
Relocation to Milan will be necessary; whilst willingness to learn Italian will be mandatory in the long run no previous knowledge of the Italian is needed.
English is mandatory, knowledge of other languages (German in particular) will be a plus.
