Commodity Trading Business Consultants & Managers – Award Winning Boutique Management Consultancy

Award winning, boutique management consultancy of 700 consultants specialised in the energy trading, energy retail and financial services markets seeks 4 x bright, dynamic and ambitious ENERGY / COMMODITY TRADING CONSULTANTS, SENIOR CONSULTANTS AND MANAGERS to join their UK or German practices.

Based from anywhere in the UK or Germany, but ideally willing to spend 1-2 days per week working out of my client’s London Global HQ or Dusseldorf German HQ, you’ll be working on management consulting projects/programmes for leading utility, oil & gas and commodity trading house clients working across:

  • Business and some IT change / transformation
  • ETRM / CTRM system vendor selection and overseeing implementations/upgrades, so knowledge of Endur, Allegro, Aligne, RightAngle, EnTrader, Aspect CTRM etc is useful
  • Assisting in introducing new emerging technologies to optimize business efficiency (including Blockchain)
  • Assisting existing trading businesses set up new commodity trading desks and professionalise existing trading desks
  • Assisting with regulation and compliance projects

My client is a European business, headquartered out of London but are now a global business especially with a growing presence in Geneva, Zurich, Dubai, Sydney, Singapore, New York City and Houston where they have offices (some very small and some 30+ consultants), so there are opportunities to work on global commodity trading projects as well as secondments to other global offices if this interests you. Your role will be European based though with 2-3 days on client-site and 2-3 days from home or the London/Dusseldorf office.

This management consultancy is regarded as the market leading commodity trading management consultancy in the UK and Northern Europe with more business orientated commodity trading consultants, more clients and projects and a fantastic reputation, including having won tens of awards over the last 5 years for being a great employer, providing great training and an amazing meritocratic work environment. They pride themselves on having almost a 50/50 male to female ratio, strong representation of ethnic minorities and other stereotypically underrepresented groups – they’re basically an excellent reflection of society and hire the best person for the job on merit.

Ideally you will have gained some prior consulting experience working for another tier one (maybe Big 4 or blue sky strategy) consultancy but this isn’t essential as you can come straight from industry working for a commodity trading house or even an ETRM / CTRM software vendor in a business analyst, project manager or related project delivery orientated role. Previous energy trading / commodity trading expertise is essential though. You will be bright and articulate with strong academics including a Bachelor’s degree from a leading UK or global university and be looking to work with similar bright, dynamic, high calibre colleagues on world leading commodity trading clients and projects.

You’ll need to have a British or European passport or have a visa allowing you to live and work in the UK or Germany without any visa issues, as my client won’t sponsor visas.

Salary in UK: £45,000 – £95,000 basic + bonus + benefits

Salary in Germany: €60,000 – €110,000 basic + bonus + benefits
