Ambitious Trader in the making with an interest in commodity markets

Do you have an interest in commodity markets and trading? Would you like to work side-by-side with some of the best traders in Europe, analysing data and implementing your ideas in a fast-paced and international environment? As our new trader, you will quickly become an integrated part of one of the leading short term gas trading teams in Europe.

Join a team of skilled specialists who all share a winning mentality
In Short Term Gas Trading & Operations, we maximise the value of our portfolio in the rapidly changing 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 every day of the year 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. We believe, a good gas trader is an innate competitive profile with a winning mentality, who has the ability to think quickly and keep a cool head under pressure. With an average age of 30 across four 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 make sure you get a thorough introduction to our trading strategies and operational setup. You will be assigned a mentor, who will make sure that you are integrated into our team and properly introduced to our trading setup. In time, we expect you to challenge our existing trading strategies and contribute to the development of new, profitable strategies. 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 at DC or at our parent company, Equinor, which employs 22,000 people worldwide.

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
