We are looking for someone who is interested in applying their skills to the development and build out of a portfolio of new utility-scale solar and battery storage projects throughout Great Britain.
The person should have experience in managing renewable energy projects through the planning and stakeholder engagement process principally. Ideally, this person will also have a wider understanding of the energy development process including the interactions and dependencies that the planning function has with land, grid and, ultimately, delivery.
The role requires being able to apply strategic thinking to unlock projects, providing solutions to complex planning situations due to technical, political or community issues, for instance. There will be an expectation on the individual to be able to do this with minimal instruction, therefore, initiative, confidence and experience are key to this role.
This person will also be the public face of the project as it progresses through the planning and stakeholder engagement process. Therefore, strong communications skills are important.
We expect the start date to be in September or October 2020.
