Your work is crucial for the Company to understand the risks taken around tradable and non-tradable exposures and make the appropriate business judgments. You will monitor positions, distribute risk reporting and develop risk reporting templates. This will cover power & gas, renewable certificates and FX.  Although your focus will be on these main risk areas, you will also report on and perform development activities for other products and components. This could include but not be limited to reporting on and modelling VaR, volatility, IR, options, price simulation, etc.
