  • Assist training sessions on upcoming regulations e.g., REMIT II.

  • Assist with ad-hoc queries from other E&C members (e.g., advisory, surveillance).

  • Act as a subject matter expert and assist the projects team when implementing regulatory requirements.

  • Review obligations from TSOs and license conditions across Europe and UK.

  • Act a Regulatory reporting liaison leading on matters that arise from the Commercial Operations team.

  • Responsible for regulatory horizon scanning; monitoring of key regulatory changes across Denmark, Europe and UK and triaging relevant information to the team.

We have a few must-haves:

  • Experience working with regulations within the energy or financial services sector.

  • Industry, regulator, or trade association experience is desirable.

  • Understanding of financial services, market abuse in wholesale energy markets, balancing markets, trading, regulatory reporting, policy, and procedure frameworks.

  • Ability to keep abreast of regulatory changes in a fast and dynamic environment.

  • Strong teamwork skills – ability to work part of a wider team to meet the team’s objectives.

  • Strong stakeholder management skills: excellent verbal, presentation, managing upwards and writing skills.

  • Experience of working with exchanges and system operators is desirable.

  • Proven experience of working flexibly and delivering on time to a high standard.
