Who we are:

We help our clients reach their environmental and sustainability objectives through trading products such as carbon offsets (CERs and VERs), Green Certificates (electricity/gas), and many others. We help our clients maximize their profits whilst reducing risk by utilizing our knowledge and network.

What you’ll do:

As a Sales Trader, you will work with clients of various sizes in different industries, each with their own set of exciting challenges. You will create, manage and grow your own portfolio of clients, using your strong interpersonal skills, and stellar communication skills to gain your clients’ trust.

You will find your own leads and through extensive cold calling, you will break down barriers and go the extra mile to ensure you stand out to clients.

You will also have the full support of your colleagues each, like you, with their unique set of skills and clients, and you will work together to close deals. Through our collaborative way of working most of our deals happen between 2 or more traders. This approach means that you as well as our clients will benefit from the entirety of our knowledge, experience, and network.

Who you are:

You’re a young and ambitious professional with (preferably) some experience or at least an affinity with finance or sales. A cold-calling pro and charismatic portfolio manager with an entrepreneurial spirit. You are also self-motivated and keep going even when things get tough, are eager to learn, welcome constructive criticism, and are not afraid to fail and try again.

Your profile in a nutshell:

  • Native speakers of British English;
  • Bachelor’s/ Master's graduate, preferably in Business, Economics or Finance;
  • 0-2 years’ experience in Sales/ Business development;
  • Excellent communicator with great interpersonal skills;
