  • Execute bio-ticket trading deals and act as the single point of contact for the Trader. Responsible for liaising with different teams.

  • Monitor sustainability performance and report information and data for business requirements.

  • Provide support to different stakeholders on the regulations and insight into the sustainability data.

What we need from you?

The LCF business is subject to ongoing changes to meet the more and more stringent requirements set by the local regulators in each country. Being able to cope with fast pace and staying on top of regulatory changes and how these translate into day-to-day Operations are key.
