Senior energy trader - Piers Wall
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.
