As a talented and ambitious Compliance Officer, you will join our Risk Management Group in Houston as a member of a team responsible for the further development and implementation of the Compliance program for one of the leading commodities businesses in the Americas. You will be responsible for collaborating and providing advice across front office, risk, technology and operations teams to develop processes, systems, policies and controls to meet the compliance and regulatory requirements in the region.

Your five or more years of experience across one or more of the following will be crucial in the implementation of a best-in-class Compliance program:

    • day-ahead / real-time power desk trading, or asset optimization;
