Project Development Manager - Solar & BESS - salary up for discussion DOE - fully remote

Piper Maddox are working with a European IPP to expand their UK team and add a Project Development Manager. They are after someone who is in the earlier stages of their career and has more of a grid understanding that is looking to learn the wider development life-cycle. You would gain exposure to the land and planning piece of a development.

This year they have had an increasing project portfolio with 2GW of National Grid transmission based grid connections being added to the tech register which is increasing work flow.

This company is very well funded and listed on the stock exchange so you'd be safe in knowing that projects will receive the funds to be able to see them be built out and operated. This is an area that is becoming increasingly important to people in the sector, as opposed to developing and selling.

By way of company culture this is a business that like to keep their teams smaller in each jurisdiction which ensures a close-knit working environment where you don't have to jump through hoops to speak to the right people and get answers fast.

They have a much more 'relaxed' approach to how they work. Everyone does quality work but if something goes wrong they won't play the blame game. You'll be surrounded by a group of people who want to help each other out in any way they can. They also have a great work-life balance.

What would your role look like and not be limited to?:
-Working alongside in-house development team to ensure that project deadlines are being kept up to.
-Working within agreed budgets and time frames, you will be expected to maintain a disciplined tracking and reporting regime using recognized project management techniques and tools.
· The role requires an understanding of commercial, legal, technical and construction activities required to successfully deliver high value solar PV projects (you will be upskilled on areas you don't have knowledge in now).
-Working with the senior developers to deliver the project from the very earliest stage of the project life cycle to the final handover for their in-house construction team to build.
-Conduct site visits and meetings with landowners and development consultants, updating site visit reports.
· Carry out Heads of Terms, Option and Lease negotiations for their own projects by working with the Acquisition Manager.
-High level stakeholder management both internally and externally.

If this sounds like the right type of opportunity for you then catch me on my details below and let's talk more about it.
