Why choose for Eneco?

The energy transition is in full swing and Eneco is leading the way. Our goal? To be fully climate-neutral by 2035. This applies to our own business activities, but also to the energy we supply to our customers. For example, we develop wind and solar farms ourselves, and we help customers take sustainable steps every day with smart products and good advice. Now that we are part of Mitsubishi Corporation (MC), our impact has increased and we are accelerating the transition. We can really use your expertise for this. You will proactively contribute to the energy transition so that we can embrace a new world that is smarter, better, cleaner, more fun and more liveable. You do this by advising on the management of financial commodity risks that are related to (the development of) our green assets, purchasing-sales to the customer portfolio and trade activities. You are a sparring partner for the business and management. Together with the team (commodity and credit analysts), you work towards an optimal risk/return ratio for Eneco.
