  • develop technical requirements and tender documents, run and evaluate tenders, execute contracts and perform detailed design together with our suppliers for HV components
  • coordinate during FAT, installation, SAT, SIT, energisation and commissioning of substations.
 
Your competences include that you
  • have a relevant bachelor's or master's degree in electrical engineering with a thesis in high-voltage power
  • understand electrical system design requirements and solutions in HV transmission systems
  • have experience with scope management and project execution with HV components and transmission systems, ensuring projects are delivered within the required schedule, cost, scope and quality
  • have personal drive combined with a structured, proactive and responsible approach to your work
  • have an extrovert personality, collaborative approach and thrive on teamwork as you'll be performing cross-disciplinary work and cooperating with colleagues and external business partners
  • speak and write English fluently.
 
You're totally excited about working in a strong global environment with colleagues, suppliers and projects all over the world. You enjoy traveling and might also be driven by the opportunity to be expatriated.
 
You enjoy sharing your knowledge with both your colleagues in the project group and the entire department.
