Head of Operations (focus on Light Distillates), Integrated Energy Trading Entity
This is an exciting opportunity to join an integrated energy trading entity with significant assets and robust financials. In tandem with their growth plans, they are seeking for a Head of Operations (covering light distillates primarily) with an ambition to expand into other parts of the barrel and into other commodities in future.
As the Head of Ops, you are also expected to be involved in the day to day operations and with over sight responsibilities of a few headcounts, is not afraid to take on more responsibilities and wear multiple hats. As the firm is growing, strong trade finance knowledge and relationships with bankers would be a huge plus for the role, though not a necessary pre-requisite.
Working closely with the traders and as an anchor member of the Ops team, your product coverage would primarily be in the light distillates and some crossover into the petrochemicals space. Your main responsibility is to ensure the smooth process flow of A-Z of cargo operations and shipping operations from contracts issuance, management, logistical operations to trade finance operations. In additional you would be handling land/floating storages, chartering the vessels, negotiation of charter party contract and demurrage claims. From time to time, you are expected to guide the junior on the team to resolve any issues arising from operations.
You possess at least 8 to 10 years’ experience in petroleum products/light distillates and/or petrochemicals cargo and shipping operations. Ideally strong trade finance knowledge and relationships with bankers would be a huge plus for the role, though not a necessary pre-requisite.
You possess good problem solving skills and good understanding of Incoterms, UCP 600 code, physical cargo and paper derivatives contracts and prepared to go the extra mile. Prior team lead/operation managerial experience will be good, or if you are currently a senior operator seeking for a step up in your career to a Head of Operations role, this could be a good opportunity for you. Day to day operations work is still expected as the Head of Ops, on top of management/oversight responsibilities.
