Clean Fuels Business - Commodities and Global Markets


Join Macquarie’s Commodity Team as part of the Clean Fuels Business team. In this role, you will facilitate the origination, development and promotion of both physical & financial Clean Fuels opportunities, based on experience, client & counterparty knowledge, analysis and understanding of the dynamics of the market, applicable legislation and client demand.

Your focus will be originating and managing Macquarie’s role in supporting feedstock, processing/refining/tolling and end-use solutions in the Clean Fuels space. Whilst your prime focus will be Asia, you will also be actively coordinating with colleagues across the world operating in this space and the Global Oil business worldwide.

In this role, your primary function will be to identify & maintain a comprehensive mapping of current & future client demand for biofuels and to originate & commercialize client-driven solutions in products including but not limited to biodiesel, renewable diesel, 2nd generation biofuels and bio-CNG/LNG. In addition, you will actively seek and secure opportunities for feedstock supply & investment opportunities which will result in long term production or aggregation of appropriate feedstocks.

You will be part of a dedicated Clean Fuels team, but you will be expected to leverage off the wider capabilities in the bank to close deals and generate optimal PNL. You will meet regularly with your supervisor and your direct team and engage in ongoing communication with other internal trading and business development teams to determine short, medium and long term opportunities.

In this role you'll be relied on for your subject matter expertise, and will need to remain up to date on legal, compliance, subsidy and economic issues affecting the biofuels/clean fuels market in particular and the hydrocarbon and financial services industry more generally. You will be expected to have solid credentials relating to both originating and successfully closing transactions, ideally in the biofuels space but with broader origination history being relevant.

  • a working relationship with the key players in the Clean Fuels industry including but not limited by consumers, traders and producers
