Grid Connections Manager
Northeast, hybrid model
Leading Developer, owner, and operator of Battery Energy Storage- Up to £85,000 + Bonus

With over 12 years in the industry, one of the leaders in the utility scale BESS market is looking for their next crucial hire into their technical team. They develop, own and operate BESS, solar and onshore wind projects across the UK, Germany, France and New Zealand.

The company:
They've developed steadily over the last decade, developing their own sites as well as joint ventures with other major players in the sector. Not only do they have operational assets, but they also manage their own development pipeline, currently standing at 2.7GW in various development stages. To support this, they have both their own development and operational teams in-house.

They're on a mission to become the leading IPP, to work towards a net-zero future. They have a strong culture as a group, emphasising innovation and sustainability throughout the group. They also work closely with landowners throughout the entire process, to ensure smooth development processes. Furthermore, they value local communities, working closely with wider groups to increase biodiversity environments.

As well as owning, operating and developing sites, they have recently created a Trust to encourage joint ventures and increasing project acquisitions.

The role:
This would be a great role if you're ready for a step up into managing your own division. It offers you a unique opportunity to work through development, building and operation stages. You'd also be managing a portfolio of both existing grid connections and establishing new connection agreements.

Your role will mainly be centered around:
- Overseeing, establishing and creating grid connections for utility scale solar, onshore wind and BESS projects. You'll be liaising with DNOs & TOs for these agreements.
- You'll be working closely with development and delivery teams across procurement and designs of new systems.
- Acting as a company representative at relevant talks, industry events and networking functions.
- Managing the delivery of works through electrical and grid connection contractors.

You'd also have potential to grow this team yourself in the future, gaining grid connection engineers as the pipeline grows potentially.

Please apply to this position, or send me an email to arrange a call to discuss this opportunity in more depth.
