Trader for Short Term Gas Trading

Would you like to be one of the trailblazers of the European gas markets? And would you like to develop your teamwork capabilities as well as your ability to analyse and implement your ideas in a fast-paced and international environment? As our new Trader, you will quickly become an integrated part of the team and contribute to our continued success in the European gas markets.

How we work and who we are
In Short Term Gas Trading & Operations, we maximise value in the very fast and highly volatile short-term gas market. We combine a data-driven approach with an efficient setup that integrates trading and operations, making us well-positioned to capture opportunities and restore energy balances close to delivery. We trade 24/7/365 and constantly grow our presence within natural gas – and with Equinor in our corner, we have the necessary financial strength to break down the doors to new markets.

You will join a team that is in it to win it. We are made of highly skilled specialists; traders with a razor-sharp eye for profit and a fierce hunger to be the best, analysts from diverse academic backgrounds with an innovative approach to data and automation, and tech-savvy developers working shoulder to shoulder with the business to reach the finish line. And get there first. With an average age of 30 across five different nationalities, the team is young and international. We are known for our team spirit and unity, which is important as we are highly dependent on each other.

Your journey as a Gas Trader
We will take good care of you when you start your job as a Trader. Starting out, you will get a thorough introduction to the team, your tasks and our general trading setup. You will be assigned a mentor, who will make sure that you are integrated into our team and feel comfortable in performing the tasks at hand. In time, we expect you to challenge our setup and give input on how to improve our day-to-day activities. As the gas team in general has a very broad reach of various business activities, there are a lot of opportunities for further career development – either under the DC umbrella or at Equinor.

What we think characterise a good gas trader is an innate competitive spirit, a winning mentality, the ability to think quickly and keep a cool head under pressure.

You need to be able to make decisions in a split second and you will immediately be able to see the impact of your decisions – and how they affect the value generated for the team
