As a Wind & Solar Developer you will proactively develop Statkraft’s new business in France focusing on the company’s large scale/commercial sales pipeline, providing EPC and development revenue. You will be directly responsible for creating business in these new markets for Wind and Solar, directly impacting the company’s commercial growth, profitability and strategic direction.

About you:

You will have experience throughout the PV project development process from Greenfield all the way through to construction.

Experience in management, track record when it comes to delivery and contractual negotiation and closing are vital for this role.

You will ideally have worked as either a Wind or Solar developer and have delivered a number of distributed generation schemes.
