  • Compilation of presentations and papers for decision making - prepare high quality papers which are user focused, clear and understandable to enable senior management and board decision making
  • Long term strategic analysis - evaluate the financial and commercial impact of changes to the commodity and energy markets as well as the regulatory and political landscape on generation assets
  • Opportunities to work with the Corporate Finance team to support multiple M&A projects

Key requirements:

  • ACA Qualified
  • Highly analytical and naturally inquisitive
  • Transaction Services / M&A / FDD / Advisory experience advantageous
