    You will be part of the Transmission & Distribution Technology team at Energy headquarters in Arnhem, The Netherlands.

    The team exists out 35 professionals (a mix of PhD, MSc and BSc level) with different backgrounds and from various cultures. Together we deliver specialized and innovative consultancy services to our customers, which are mainly transmission- and distribution system operators, power utilities and industries.

    • Prepare specifications and tender documentation
    • Execute or witness commissioning tests such as factory- or site acceptance tests (FAT/SAT)
    • Write (or contribute to) clear and high quality reports and commercial offers
    • Identify market opportunities and develop our service portfolio / roadmap
    • Contribute to business development

    Based on your experience, we will create a plan together with you for your development for the next few years. We will do this through our 70-20-10 philosophy: 70% learning on the job, 20% coaching and 10% training.

    You will be given the opportunity to grow to a (senior) consulting role where you sell, lead and execute projects in order to help clients realize the stated project goals and deliverables. Or you develop yourself as a senior technology expert being seen as an international authority in your working field.

    Position Qualifications

    We are looking for an pro-active and ambitious Electrical Engineer / Consultant who is a team player, enthusiastic and who actively contributes to the success of our team and collaborates to create results.

    • You have Bachelor or Masters degree in Electrical Engineering or similar
    • You have 5-10 years of solid work experience in the energy sector and in the T&D workfield
    • Experience in working with customers in Western Europe will be an advantage

    • You are curious, interested and engaged
