Today, companies are constantly urged to drastically reduce their carbon footprint. By trading in a wide variety of renewable energy products, STX enables businesses to achieve this goal. In doing so, we contribute to a more transparent environmental commodities market and, therefore, a greener world. We’re looking for a International VAT and Customs Specialist to join our business and the extremely dynamic market we operate in, and to embark on a journey with us towards a better tomorrow. 


The operations function forms the backbone of any company. At STX, the Operations team, which comprises IT, Finance, Human Resources and Middle Office, works closely with all other teams and desks to ensure that STX continues to perform and deliver at an exceptionally high level. As a critical partner in the business, Operations also guarantees compliance with all the relevant rules and regulations. Moreover, the Operations team works collaboratively to make sure that STX has the necessary structures and processes in place to grow and develop further in new products, industries and markets. 


“As a member of the finance team, you’re exposed to many different aspects of the company. There is a lot of collaboration between us and other departments within STX, so you have a broad perspective of both the business and finance. The learning curve in our team is very steep.” – Kris Swanepoel, Finance Manager
