Join us and become Senior Warranty Manager in TSA & Warranty Management, a department in Commercial Operations responsible for handling warranty claim processes for wind turbine generators (WTGs) on our operational wind farms under project-specific Turbine Supply Agreements (TSAs). Together with your colleagues, you will work towards improving and optimising our commercial positions and relations with key suppliers.
 
Your key tasks will be to
  • manage Warranty Accounts, ensuring that all contractual requirements in the TSA are complied with by our WTG suppliers

  • project manage and coordinate warranty claim processes, activities and internal stakeholders
  • secure the execution of relevant analyses, investigations, etc. to ensure a successful outcome to the warranty claims.
 
Furthermore, you will develop business cases for strategic warranty claims and negotiate strategic settlement agreements with key suppliers, determine information sharing strategies with our partners in relation to warranty cases and prepare and coordinate same. You will need to maintain a balanced approach between managing the contractual obligations and long-term relations with our key suppliers.
 
Your competences include that you
  • have a master's degree, preferably in Engineering and a flair for technical issues
  • have a solid business understanding and a strategic and analytical mind-set
  • extensive relevant work experience, preferably where you can demonstrate managing large technical contracts and/or negotiation with suppliers
  • thrive on seeing technical issues from a commercial viewpoint (and vice versa) and finding the optimal commercial solution
  • have proven project management skills enabling you to successfully deliver on several complex high-profile warranty projects simultaneously.
 
It's important that you have a result-oriented approach to your work and that you work in a structured manner. You thrive on working both independently and in teams ensuring excellent results. You have an outgoing personality, strong communication skills (both orally and in writing), strong networking and influencing skills and speak and write English fluently.
