Job Description

VaasaETT, an internationally operating energy consultancy, is now looking to hire Energy Market Analysts - both Junior and Senior - to join the team in Helsinki or Thessaloniki, with possibilities for remote work!

As an Energy Market Analyst, your goal is to identify opportunities and provide comprehensive analysis of international energy markets to VaasaETT’s clients. More specifically, the role will include:

  • Performing energy market analysis (including characteristics, trends, dynamics and prices, major short- and long-term risks for security of supply etc.) and research to uncover insights that drive recommendations to clients

  • Synthesizing quantitative and qualitative research findings into informative and easy-to-understand deliverables to our clients

  • Understanding the fundamentals of power markets operations, drivers of power prices, and how energy policies can affect corporate strategic decisions (e.g. market-entry decisions, investment or purchasing strategy)

  • Understanding the opportunities relating to renewable energy procurement and ancillary markets in different countries

  • Understanding grid availability, power grid connection processes, connection timelines in different markets

  • Understanding client needs regarding strategic development, energy procurement and sustainability in complex and fast-changing energy markets

  • In a Senior role, you will also take part in management of projects, involvement in quality control and innovations, knowledge management and guidance of colleagues.

The role can be modified according to your experience. As a more junior Analyst, your primary tasks will focus on project-based research, analysis, and consulting; and as a Senior Analyst, your role is further complemented by developing the projects and providing guidance to junior colleagues. In both roles, you get to work with international clientele and contacts and develop your analytics skills as well as your profile as a well-versed expert and professional in the energy sector. In your daily job, you will be supported in growing along with your tasks and increasingly taking over responsibilities. If this sounds like something you would enjoy, keep reading!

Who are we looking for?

You might be our ideal Analyst, if you have a positive attitude and a curious mindset: you enjoy challenges, problem solving and going beyond your comfort zone. Even though you work efficiently, you always pay close attention to details. As an Analyst, you work closely with customers and other analysts, so we expect you to have good communication and teamwork skills. You have an analytical mindset and are skilled when it comes to “telling a story” with data. As you are working as a consultant, we hope you are flexible and do not mind occasional tight deadlines. You might be just starting your career or have already gained relevant experience - either way, we hope you already have insight on analytics and are truly motivated to dive deep into the energy market analysis!

We hope you have:

  • Relevant master’s degree, for example in economics or business, ideally with energy-related majors or minors

  • Understanding and interest in energy markets

  • Analytical mindset, well-structured and thorough approach to working

  • Skills in Microsoft Office (esp. Word, Excel, PowerPoint)

  • Excellent written and spoken English skills

  • Ability to travel for business (only occasionally)

We consider as an asset :

  • Relevant work experience regarding (energy) market research and data analytics

  • Experience / insight on consulting and project management

  • Experience with in-depth analysis of power supply systems (e.g. network reliability assessments)

  • Understanding of risk evaluation, especially regarding major risks for security of supply in power markets (such as natural disasters, cyber threats, physical attacks)

  • Additional language skills (e.g., Spanish, Portuguese, French, Arabic)

What VaasaETT offers you:

  • A truly international, diverse, and friendly work community

  • Varied set of challenging tasks, work on innovative projects, based on international energy wholesale and retail market analysis

  • Versatile position that allows you to challenge your skills

  • A chance to become an expert in energy markets or to enhance and broaden your expertise and gain experience in consultancy to blue chip clients

  • Work-life-balance-centered environment. While we expect commitment, effort, and diligence, we also value the quality of life. Our staff appreciates the possibility of flexible working arrangements and that our work planning puts emphasis on avoiding regular or excessive overtime. We offer the possibility of up to 50% remote work (in special cases possibly more).

  • Competitive salary
