Energy trading

Senior energy trader

What does that mean? I am in charge of making sure that Meridian's generation is getting cleared into the market. 

What's the best part of your job? What's good for Meridian is good for New Zealand. When I am trading, the more hydro generation I can get away, and the better I can manage the water, the less thermal has to run, less gas and less coal.

What sort of skills are important specifically to be a trader? A love of numbers and a love of logic.

Tell me about the hours that you work in this job You have two nights, two days then a four day weekend. That's when it becomes all pretty worthwhile.
