You will have knowledge either of the regulatory frameworks for utility companies, micro-economics, or finance (ideally all three).
You will be comfortable and/or experienced in presenting to clients.
Be a highly motivated, ambitious self-starter, willing to take advantages of the opportunities this position offers.
You will bring excellent report writing, Excel and PowerPoint skills—strong writing and quantitative skills are a must.
