Would you like to take up the challenges of driving Operations' scope and commercial deliverables for future offshore wind farms? 
Join us and become an Operations Project Manager/Senior Project Lead in Offshore where you'll be responsible for all Operations & Maintenance (O&M) activities and deliverables during the early development phase of an offshore wind farm (including Operations' deliverables to competitive auctions and Final Investment Decisions) . 
Your key tasks will be to 

  • be responsible for driving the strategic Operations set-up for projects in the early development phase also with respect to new market entries, early JV considerations, and local content
  • drive the development of the O&M scope and concepts and be responsible for the timely preparation of Operations' deliverables during the early project development phase
  • act as the O&M Package Manager and Operations focal point and drive the collaboration with other internal project stakeholders and applicable external stakeholders
  • ensure that the lifetime OPEX model assumptions and yield profiles are robust and that all decisions are made with the input of necessary stakeholders and supported by a solid business case
  • project manage the scope and ensure timely delivery of Operations' deliverables for highly competitive auctions and the project's Final Investment Decision (and towards the beginning of the construction/ execution phase).

Furthermore, you'll oversee assumptions behind the lifetime OPEX model and yield profiles, ensuring the wind farm OPEX and yield profiles are reflective of asset-specific concepts and risks. You'll be responsible for ensuring that synergies with existing or potential future offshore wind farms are considered and that the optimal O&M harbour is selected. Your duties will also include preparing and presenting decision materials to senior management in Operations, ensuring risks are quantified and proposals are supported by solid business justification principles. 
Finally, you'll be tasked with managing dependencies to other packages of the wind farm, including risks and scope changes, developing the O&M scope of work and initial budget for the construction/ execution phase. You'll manage communications with project team members as well as internal and external project stakeholders, and you'll lead the hand-over to the O&M project manager responsible for the construction/execution phase. 
Your competences include that you 

  • have a degree in business, economics or engineering and a solid understanding of business case principles and relevant project management experience
  • have experience from a commercial role in an industry such as energy, infrastructure or heavy industry coupled with experience of working in cross-cultural and virtual teams. A background from M&A or management consulting would also be relevant
  • have an understanding of operational and/or project environments and experience in developing and justifying project concepts, scope, costs, and business cases
  • possess good people leadership and conflict resolution capabilities
  • have an independent, organised and structured work approach and the ability to multitask.

Moreover, you demonstrate strong self-drive, motivation and resilience coupled with a positive mind-set. Furthermore, you'll demonstrate solid people influencing skills, presentation and communication skills with the ability to communicate effectively across cultures and different geographical locations. 
It is essential that you have the ability to navigate in a complex organisation without direct supervision and can successfully build and use a personal network to achieve your objectives. In addition, it is essential that you have good skills in MS Office. 
You should expect some travelling in relation to your work.
