Entry-level opportunities exist within Accounting and Product Control. In these pivotal roles, you will be working at a global level, side-by-side with traders influencing the trading and shipping of various commodities with a particular focus on physical Gas and Power.

For Product Control you will have a strong accounting background and use this to analyse Trading P&L exposure, produce a daily summary of price movements, and report on several aspects of EU Cross-commodity trading activity.
