    Forecasting & Pricing Analyst

    Do you want to commit to a critical challenge and help to shape our future? Become part of an energy company who want to take charge in driving towards a fossil free future. We are looking for a analytical mind to join us as our new Forecasting & Pricing Analyst.

    About the role
    The current energy transition strongly increases opportunities and the complexity of the Forecasting, Sourcing and Pricing function. Growth towards world class execution will be a key lever for Business Sales (BtB) NL’s future commercial performance. It requires an analytical approach, in depth knowledge, advanced modelling and effective processes. It requires an integrated approach, translating the volatility of the wholesale market and risks into attractive customer propositions, whilst managing related values and risks.

    Team members within Solutions Development are responsible for creating (new) sustainable solutions for customers with partners inside and outside Vattenfall. The associated responsibility for the result and risk management are an integral part of this. Digital innovation is increasingly playing a role in this. In this team you therefore work on the results of today as well as on the changes aimed at in the future. You will report to the Manager Solutions Development.

    Your tasks and responsibilities:
    • Execute daily forecasting and pricing processes for Business Sales (BtB) NL, ensuring up-to-date portfolio insights and a market-based and risk-covering cost price for the sourcing of electricity and gas;
    • Develop models based on customer behaviour;
    • Initiation and support of initiatives to increase the level of automation, flexibility and intelligence in required processes;
    • Build up thorough knowledge of (developments in) the wholesale market, in value and risk models, and in changes in market processes and regulations;
    • Develop scenarios to balance the value and risks of our customers with those of Vattenfall;
    • Find new value propositions for customers, based on sourcing – risk – pricing opportunities and translating these towards product innovation.

    Your profile
    With a curious and analytical mind you enjoy thinking out of the box. You have the willingness to leave your comfort zone and learn new things. You are able to work with sophisticated mathematical models or are comfortable learning to do so. At the same time, you are flexible enough to work on more straightforward analyses (such as crunching large amounts of data), if this is what is needed to support the business. As a natural communicator you are happy to take initiative in interacting with our customers and internal stakeholders. Working close with other members of the team – sharing ideas and developing models together, gives you energy.
    As Forecasting & Pricing Analyst you ideally have the following qualifications:
    • An academic degree of a relevant quantitative/financial discipline, such as econometrics, engineering, mathematics, physics or similar;
    • Programming knowledge, preferable in Python;
    • Work experience in fields of Forecasting, Sourcing and/or Pricing. Preferably within a retail, sales business or consultancy in a competitive environment;
    • Fluent in English and at least basic knowledge of the Dutch language.
    We offer
    At Vattenfall you will work in an open and entrepreneurial environment. We offer you a challenging and independent job in an informal, dynamic working environment. You can play a part in shaping the future of a company where the only constant is change. We offer good remuneration, attractive employment conditions and opportunities for personal and professional growth. You get the opportunity to create your own career within the company. Next to that, you will receive a market-orientated salary with good secondary benefits.
