Trade executive - Are you a commercial talent?
A fascinating, ambitious, and international market you can grow into.
€2750,- / €3250,- & benefits package, 30 vacation days.
Have a strong commercial drive, but don’t forget to have fun doing things.

Are you fit to tie the knots of renewable feedstock and oil companies in a highly efficient team, speeding up the worldwide energy transition? We challenge you to energize the future and have fun doing so.

What are you going to do

As a Trade Executive your main responsibility is to expand our current customers portfolio. You will be analysing and researching into business opportunities and translating this to clear business proposals. You also support in matching buyers and sellers and propose new business opportunities. You start by supporting the team in the growth of the existing portfolio. Learning the market and deal structures. Delivering ‘key insights’ on market developments. You report directly to the Commercial Director.

Who you are

You are a commercial talent. As a Trade Executive you are outgoing and think outside the box so you can initiate and originate new clients, products and markets. You are an inspirator, able to create opportunities and passionate about the Energy Transition. You know doing good can also create value. Furthermore, you are skilled in managing relationships with clients, traders, suppliers, logistics partners and your colleagues. 

  • You think and act at an academic level, with 1 – 3 years of relevant working experience
  • Knowledge of Business Central is very much appreciated
  • Affinity with (Agri) Commodity markets is appreciated
  • Excellent in written and verbal English and preferably one other (foreign) language

    Please note that you’ll be joining the team fulltime on location in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. You don’t have to be a Dutchie of course and speaking Dutch is not required here at all, but living no more than a healthy daily drive away is quite essential.

Who are we

Connex is a renewable feedstock trading company. In a world where fuel consumption keeps on growing, the call for a sustainable energy transition grows with it. The potential of renewable feedstock has already proven itself. It is our business to find the right, reliable source and lead the way in delivering reductive solutions. Our focus is on bringing clients together along the supply chain. We connect, supply, support, and deliver. Connex bridges the gap.

Our business is ready to scale-up. You can be part of this transition, with a large part of freedom, personal space to develop (trading/ business analyses) reporting – optimize the ERP system and work on trade proposals. Connex is committed to grow the company rapidly, and in search of people who like the high energy and fast-paced environment. Does this apply to you too?

We dare you to energize our team by proving your commercial value, take ownership and grow with us.

What do we offer

We offer you a market that is fascinating, ambitious and international. You work with highly skilled and very motivated colleagues, creating sustainable and robust strategies for A-list Clients. Connex believes you can truly be part of the energy transition solution by energizing the future of fuel…and play table football in the process. 

  • Sustainability and Business Ethics are at the core of our company values
  • Personal responsibility about time, location (base is Rotterdam), and work
  • Personal development plan – fitting your need for growth
  • And… the best (and most fun) colleagues you can wish for
