Consultant European energy markets (German native speaker)

Hybrid Remote
Postgraduate degree
Functional areas

Do you enjoy working on projects and are you looking for an international working environment where you will experience a steep learning curve? We have a spot for you in our energy team!

What you will do

As a Consultant for the International Energy Sector you support project teams that work on the integration of the European electricity market. These teams need to define and design the international cooperation by e.g. developing methods, processes, IT and contracts. Eventually, these processes of different electricity organisations in Europe need to come together, which is a huge challenge.

In addition, there is the challenge to translate European legislations into the national context. Due to the specificities of the German electricity market, there is a need for further coordination amongst the different organisations. As a native German consultant you can play a key role in facilitating this alignment and support our German clients.

Your role? You are the Project Management Officer (PMO), the independent driving force of these teams. You guide them in their process to achieve results and solutions despite the large differences between the organisations, their different interests and ways of working. From a neutral position you ensure that decisions are made and progress is achieved. Often you add value by proposing new solutions where necessary and feasible. We call this business diplomacy, which is used to achieve consensus between the different stakeholders. Primarily, you are a project manager, who offers structure and clarity and follows-up on actions and deadlines.

You will learn a lot while working on different disciplines and challenges.

What we offer

Why choose Magnus Energy? We offer a stimulating working environment: a young and international team of about 35 consultants and project managers. We are all motivated professionals who respect each other and want to learn from each other. No egos, but commitment and fun, also outside working hours.

We are there for you to help you grow. You learn most on the job, but we also offer an extensive training program. A program with internal and external trainings on the European Electricity Sector, project management and soft skills. Next to that, we have a lot of experience and best-practices, but there is a lot of room for your own ideas to keep improving our services. Sounds good?

Who we are looking for

You are an analytical young professional who combines organisational skills with knowledge of people and a drive to deliver results! In addition, the following profile matches you:

  • University Master’s degree in a technical, science, business or international relations direction with excellent grades;
  • 1 to 3 years working experience; project management experience is valuable
  • German native speaker
  • Working place: 50% in the Netherlands (Naarden), 50% Homeoffice from Germany (North Rhine-Westphalia)
  • Proven international experience in which you have demonstrated your organisational talent and facilitating skills;Interesting secondary activities that show you that you have an entrepreneurial mindset and take the initiative;
  • Strong communication: you mobilise people with all kinds of backgrounds, you are a native German and your English is excellent (great if you speak several European languages);
  • Analytically strong: of course you are smart, but you are also structured and able to think ahead;
  • And you are demonstrably interested in the European energy sector! It is a plus if you already have some experience.
