DNV GL has a strong legacy in the wind industry in providing independent energy assessments for the pre-construction phase of projects. The same position has been developed recently for solar resource assessment. We are currently looking for a Business Lead to join the North Europe, Middle East and Africa (NEMEA) team in the UK, to help further build on this legacy.
The focus of the role will be on Business Development, by interacting with customers and industry groups, and by coordinating the teams efforts in creating and developing leads, as well as being responsible for applying foresight and innovation in how the service(s) evolves over time, based on the changing needs of our customers and/or the changing technical landscape. The Business Lead should be spending time with customers to understand their challenges and needs, aligning our service organisation to meet these needs and also continually critiquing and exploring opportunities (perhaps through R&D) to make the service(s) more efficient or of higher-value potential.
Face to face client contact, travel to site visits, meetings, conferences and other off-site events are a normal part of this role.
The Business Lead will work closely with their Head of Department to ensure ongoing availability of competent resources to deliver the service(s) within their remit. They will also work closely with colleagues to explore opportunities for creating new high value services through combination of their service with those in other departments.
A secondary part of the role remains that of an individual contributor, undertaking consulting or advisory work at a higher level of competence and experience.
The Business Lead will report directly to the Head of Department (HoD) of the Data Analytics team. This is a team of 40 people undertaking pre and post construction wind and solar energy analysis and short-term forecasting work for the NEMEA region. The team is located in Bristol, Glasgow, London and Dublin, with support to colleagues in other offices such as Arnhem, Dubai, Casablanca and Cape-Town.
