Join a team of dedicated risk specialists
Right now, we are looking for a market risk analyst for our Market Risk Management team. In the team, our primary responsibility is to monitor the daily trading positions and mandates given for our trading activities and perform daily reporting of profit and loss. We serve as partners to the business teams, ensuring risk control on positions and products through profound discussions on models and risk appetite. As this role is a vital link in the communications towards the trading teams and other stakeholders, the ideal candidate is curious, willing to challenge stakeholders and to be challenged.
As our new colleague, you will experience a culture with diverse backgrounds and nationalities, working closely with experts within the energy sector. The way we work is characterised by close collaboration across the entire Risk Management unit, meaning direct access to colleagues with both quantitative modelling skills and colleagues with a dedicated focus on credit risk. This means you will get to take on complex issues with colleagues who are all passionate about their field of expertise.
Your responsibilities and professional journey to become risk professional expert
No matter your level of experience, we will ensure a solid introduction to DC and the energy trading industry. Starting out, you will get a thorough introduction to the team, your tasks, your primary stakeholders and our risk management framework. Your first task will be to get familiar with your assigned portfolio and the responsibilities within that particular business area. Shortly after your introduction period, and when you have acquired the necessary knowledge, you will be the designated market risk analyst for a specific portfolio. In this position, you will play a significant role in developing our business partnering setup through various analyses – always ensuring that we offer best-in-class risk management.
