Meet Nicole Attias

Studying: International Economic Consulting
Position: Junior Dispatcher
Employed since: March 2020
Fun fact: I have family roots in more than five different countries, including Denmark, Israel and Morocco

MY BACKGROUND

I come from Aalborg, a Danish city in northern Jutland. I started as a student employee in Power Trading Operations after returning from an exchange semester in Melbourne, Australia. When I am not working at DC, I take part in two student organisations at Aarhus BSS, where I especially enjoy participating in case competitions.

WHY I WANTED TO WORK FOR DC

I wanted to work in a fast-paced environment with lots of variation and the opportunity of taking on responsibility. I also really wanted to be part of a young and fun environment with a strong culture and a winning attitude. DC provided me this, all the while I got to develop really valuable skills in programming and become familiar with the fast-paced and highly interesting energy industry.

WHAT I DO

In my position as a Junior Dispatcher, I am responsible for the scheduling and flowing of electricity across the whole of Europe, as well as assisting our traders with daily operations. Besides this, my team has an overall focus on process optimisation of which we develop business tools for traders in order to automate manual tasks.

MY TYPICAL WORK DAY

A typical shift as a dispatcher always involves unforeseeable events. No day in the market is ever the same. Most days are, however, spent helping traders perform their daily tasks whether it be uploading bids to power auctions, requesting capacities, or flowing power to balance the grids where DC operates. Most importantly, my job as a dispatcher is to ensure that operations are running smoothly.

THE BEST PART OF MY JOB

The best part of my job is getting to work in a team of dedicated and passionate people where everyone always walk the extra mile to succeed. It is very inspiring to be part of a unique culture, where the time from idea to execution is so short. It motivates me to see the value that my ideas create, and if one is up for the task, there is lots of responsibility to take. Since we work as a link between trading and the rest of the organisation, we get to improve efficiency and challenge our current set-up all the while collaborating widely across the organisation to achieve it.
