Working for us

At Origin we have a strong purpose and values that challenge us to find the answers to the big energy questions. Every person that works with us helps us reach that goal. If you bring good energy to Origin, you’ll get it in return. A challenging career. An exciting industry. And the support to grow and explore your potential.

The Role’s

Origin has multiple opportunities available within our fast-paced Connect Team which exists within our Data and Analytics function. The Connect team is responsible for the commercial aspects of Origin’s virtual power plant (VPP) activities, which uses advanced analytics and control technologies to orchestrate the use of distributed energy assets. The VPP aims to optimise the use of these assets to achieve financial and carbon emissions objectives for customers and the Origin portfolio.

These positions will be responsible for supporting the financial and operational analytics for assessing virtual power plant and customer emissions reduction opportunities as well as supporting the operations of the virtual power plant, with particular focus on trading activities, large customer assets and smart meter enabled assets. These roles will support, engage and interact with both members of the Data & Analytics team to design enhancements to the platform or enable operating strategies, as well as with Origin business stakeholders and customers.

Responsibilities will include:

  • Conduct financial, commercial and operational analytics on VPP and Future Energy opportunities and products
  • Lead or support possible deal structures and value streams for VPP and connected asset customer opportunities
  • Lead or support data-driven, investigative analytics to identify prospective customers and new product opportunities, supported by the broader Data and Analytics team
  • Prepare presentations, collateral and reports for customers, business stakeholders and senior management
  • Prepare analysis on VPP strategies, value streams and asset performance

Is This You

To be successful in this role you will be commercially and analytically minded, numerate and inquisitive with the ability to work autonomously and flexibly in a dynamic emerging and changing environment.

You will have:

  • Tertiary qualifications or significant work experience in a relevant quantitative, analytical or commercial discipline
  • Prior experience in analytics, financial modelling or statistical modelling
  • Prior work experience in the energy industry, ideally in energy forecasting or trading
  • Prior experience in building and implementing financial models
