  • Support business development (BD) in the region by preparing pitch decks and getting involved in BD and project scoping meetings.
  • Some travel is required on average around 15% of the time (but could occasionally be more).
What We're Looking For:

Basic Required Qualifications:
  • At least 5 years of demonstrated expertise in the power and renewables sector typically acquired by working in industry, government, research, or consulting. Highly desirable to have experience in European power markets either via industry or in an advisory capacity.
  • Consulting experience in an energy consulting practice or as an internal consultant supporting investment decisions and development of strategies in energy markets.
  • Bachelor's degree in business, economics, engineering, mathematics, or related field required.
  • Analytical mindset with the ability to leverage data-driven insights to inform decision-making.
  • Advanced proficiency with MS Office applications (Excel, Word and PowerPoint).
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills in English.
  • Effective interpersonal skills to enable communication and collaboration with colleagues and clients and to navigate in a matrix organisation.
  • Ability to thrive in a collaborative, team-oriented environment, with a willingness to contribute ideas and provide constructive feedback.
Additional Preferred Qualifications:
  • A post-graduate degree is preferred (including in finance, economics, or business)
  • Experience in management consulting will be a significant plus.
  • Understanding of power dispatch and demand modelling, including understanding of power dispatch optimization software, such as Plexos and Aurora.
  • Programming languages (e.g. VBA , Python, R and/or SQL) proficiency is preferred
  • Knowledge of several other European languages (beyond English) is a plus.
We encourage applications from individuals of all backgrounds and are committed to fostering an inclusive and diverse workplace. Join us in shaping the future of European power markets and addressing complex challenges arising from the region's climate ambitions.
