Trading operator - Petrochemicals

Faststream is recruiting for a global chemical / petrochemical corporate business with a reputation for excellence. As part of their continued growth they are seeking a trading operator for their newly created trading division. This is a rare opportunity to join at the early stages of a new venture within an established corporate with a turnover in excess of £1 billion. 

The role is based in the Northern Home Counties area so will appeal if the commute into London is not for you. 

As a trading operator you will be involved in the execution of all physical movements of their growing traded product portfolio, balancing cost, service levels and safe and reliable delivery. You will be working with the traders to provide complex operational solutions and work with planning departments to supply raw material feedstock to their manufacturing plants. 

The role is broad in scope and also includes working with external trading counter-parties, appointing surveyors, documentation and SAP ERP based information management, Ship and Barge demurrage claims handling and customer delivery scheduling via RTC, tank, barges or vessels. 

The ideal experience includes relevant operations experience in shipping (tankers preferred) and a working knowledge of scheduling, planning, SAP or ERP systems, contract & maritime law and demurrage principles. 

Opportunity exists at junior to mid-levels so if you have some or all of the above you are encouraged to apply. Please contact Jonathan Pearse for a confidential discussion.
