03/11 2017Posted by: npower Resourcing Team Subscribe to this blog

Whether you’re a graduate looking to apply your superior financial and mathematical skills to the working world, or an experienced quantitative modeller wanting to experience the ever-evolving energy industry, npower is the perfect place to be. With cutting-edge technology and techniques, a supportive environment and friendly team of industry experts, it’s a fantastic place to work. Here’s what you need to know:

It’s fundamental to the business

Quantitative risk is a vital business area for us at npower. Each year, we manage hundreds of millions of pounds worth of financial risks in order to achieve the best results for both our customers and our business, delivered by professionals who improve the way we manage and monitor solutions to business risk. That means your role within npower is absolutely crucial.

We use the best tools

Quantitative modellers come to us because we’re a large company in an exciting industry, using the most advanced technologies and tools available. As a business, we’re at the cutting edge in terms of products and services we offer, and the Quantitative Risk team provides the tools to support that innovation. npower takes ownership of risks, and the team operates end-to-end risk management, from trading markets right through to resale. This big-picture risk and value management is uncommon within the industry, and gives our quantitative modellers the opportunity to oversee a broad scope of work and get a fantastic range of experience – not to mention take control of our success.

The energy industry is dynamic

Few industries are as rapidly evolving and dynamic as the energy industry, and at npower we offer a big-picture view of everything from renewables, remote controlling and smart metering to the more traditional gas and electricity work. Our quant team members are always abreast of new developments in quantitative finance and modelling, all the while maintaining exceptional interpersonal and business skills that enable them to thrive across the business. Our team is about more than just delivering great results – we pride ourselves on our communication and people skills, and are constantly interacting with other departments and business areas to achieve more together.

We offer a great work-life balance

Our quantitative team works in offices in Solihull and Swindon. Many of our team chose npower after looking for a better work-life balance in a community environment. We offer fantastic support, with some of the best and brightest in the industry on-hand to offer guidance and teamwork. The location of our offices and lifestyle this provides is an attractive option for experienced quantitative modellers looking for a more settled lifestyle, with the Midlands providing the perfect backdrop for professionals who want to get more out of life.
