This role is a unique opportunity for a highly motivated individual to join the team as the business looks to move to the next phase of growth in becoming a global market leader.

In this newly created role, you will be working closely with the Contracts Manager and reporting to the EMEA Head of Construction to deliver the execution strategy during the development and construction phase. You will work with multi-disciplinary teams to identify project risks, barriers, and issues and propose possible solutions and mitigation strategies, ensure Quality and Health, Safety, Security and Environment project requirements are met, and ensure interfaces with contractors and stakeholders are identified and appropriately managed. The Technical Project Manager is responsible for co-ordinating and driving the development and construction activities to efficiently advance the pipeline of projects through the development and construction phases.

Based in London, your role will comprise the following key responsibilities:
  • Managing energy storage development activities including co-ordination of technical due diligence (land, grid and planning), appraisal of potential opportunities and leading any technical work required to progress the development of acquired projects.
  • Managing tender processes for new EPC work packages and evaluating responses
  • Managing pre-construction negotiations with EPC suppliers (developing and reviewing Engineering Requirements/managing warranty terms/EPC terms) and generally driving the projects towards financial commitment by securing a suite of comprehensive construction contracts that deliver long term value for the asset.
  • Ensuring material issues and risks (WHSE, technical, commercial and programme related) across the portfolio are managed to optimize investment performance.
  • Co-ordination and budget responsibility for use of external suppliers
  • Managing the delivery of the projects in the construction phase ensuring projects are executed in accordance with best industry practice and achieve their stated goals (HSE, budget, programme, quality).

  • Reporting of overall energy storage pipeline status to senior management

You will ideally be a degree qualified engineer with a minimum of 5 years' working experience and having held project management roles on energy projects in various stages of the project lifecycle. You will be highly motivated, with a versatile personality and excellent interpersonal skills, ready for working in a fast-paced environment with pressing delivery dates while coordinating with internal and external stakeholders. You will bring strong technical skills, a thorough understanding of complex energy projects and the ability to exchange with and understand subject experts, while having worked as a member of a large, multi-disciplinary and international team.

Your experience and knowledge of energy storage development and construction activities coupled with excellent project management credentials, will hold you in good stead to be successful in this role.

You will have excellent communication skills and the ability to liaise at all levels. You will need to be ambitious, motivated and have the drive to succeed. Being a team player, in addition to having strong quantitative and analytical skills will be crucial to your success.
