What you will do

As a Senior 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, and this under a challenging timeframe.

Your role? You are the Project Management Officer (PMO), the independent driving force of these teams. As Senior Consultant you use your project management experience to guide them in their process to achieve results despite the large differences between the organisations, their different interests and ways of working. Primarily, you are a project manager, who offers structure and clarity in highly complex situations. From a neutral position you ensure that decisions are made and progress is achieved. Secondly, you add value by proposing new solutions where necessary and feasible. As you are already comfortable leading larger groups of clients from a to b, you can add more value by getting a better understanding of the in-depth discussions aiming to use this to support decision-making. Thirdly, you get to know the context better and understand individual positions of the parties which will allow you to also facilitate the process on a more diplomatic level. We call this business diplomacy, which is used to achieve consensus between the different stakeholders.

What we offer

Why choose Magnus Energy? We offer a stimulating working environment: a young and international team of about 40 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.

With offices in Naarden, The Netherlands and Cologne area, Germany, we offer a flexible work environment tuned to the new work approach.

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;
  • 3 - 4 years working experience, ideally with experience in the energy sector focussed on TSOs or DSOs, within management consulting focussed on energy/infrastructure projects or with relevant project management experience
  • Analytically strong: of course you are smart, but you are also structured and able to think and plan ahead as well as strategic thinking skills
  • Excellent communication: You mobilise people with all kinds of backgrounds, you are an excellent listener, strong in verbal communication, interpersonal and presentation skills
  • Language wise, your English is excellent (business/professional fluency), and due to our European work, you are fluent in at least one other European language
  • You have a clear link with the Netherlands: you live or studied here, or are otherwise connected to the Netherlands;
  • 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;
  • And most important, you are demonstrably interested in the energy transition and a clear desire to work on future of European Energy markets!

Many design aspects of Europe's internal energy market have yet to be finalised, so - alongside the experts in our project teams - we’re constantly discussing what the future will look like. The significance of what we’re working on – and how fundamental our need for electricity is – are crucial.
