Job Description

Battery Storage Consultant

Everoze is a technical and commercial consultancy accelerating the transition to a net-zero energy system. We listen carefully to our clients, partnering with them to make projects, companies, and technologies financeable and future-system focused. ​We are employee owned. Our team is skilled, agile, and cohesive. We deliver projects with positive impact, high quality, and high margin.

We are hiring two battery storage consultants to work on projects in Western Europe: one position (“Position 1”) with a focus on UK and Ireland and the other (“Position 2”) with a focus on Mainland European markets such as France (including ZNIs), Italy, Portugal and Spain. This spec is for the Mainland Europe position (Position 2).

What we offer:

  • Real impact at the cutting edge of energy: We are committed to accelerating the transition to a net-zero energy system. We work with some of the most influential players in the sector to achieve this and regularly find ourselves working on projects that push the technical and commercial boundaries of clean energy. You’ll be at the heart of this: providing the analysis and judgement which inform our clients’ major investment and policy decisions.

  • Exposure to a wide range of projects and clients: As a thriving consultancy business Everoze works for clients ranging from multinational banks to community energy groups. You will be exposed to the wide range of projects financed and developed by these clients, taking in different approaches to challenges, risks, and solutions at each turn.  

  • A fast-growth environment: We set up shop with 6 partners in September 2015. Now we’re 55 strong and counting, based across the UK, France, Spain, Italy, Portugal and Germany. We are entrepreneurial recently creating three new organisations: Quaybridge, LiveDiligence and Skyray, and investing in two others.

  • The flattest of flat organisations: Let’s be upfront: if you thrive on hierarchy and structure, Everoze is not the company for you. But if you are looking for a work environment where the strength of your ideas are valued as much as your years of experience, then you’re looking in the right place. You will be given the freedom and autonomy to shape your own career; it’s not for everyone, and with freedom comes responsibility – but for the right people owning your own career will allow you to thrive.

  • The team works: Say goodbye to departmental silos! We get our offshore wind experts working on energy storage, our UK team working on French projects, our onshore wind specialists branching into solar. It keeps things fresh for us and, more importantly, spurs the creative cross-fertilisation of ideas which helps us deliver unique insights and value to our clients.

  • Top-notch mentorship: Most of the Everoze team have been in the renewables and energy business for well over a decade, and some of us have previously led large teams and business units. We are generous in sharing this experience by assigning you an internal mentor to help guide your professional development. We also have an in-house coach. And we hope that you can return the favour by offering feedback for us too, because whether you’ve got 3 months experience, or 30 years, we’ve all got more to learn.

  • We’re human: One of the benefits of being one team is that we all get to know each other. Everoze quite literally is its staff and we all do our very best to support and look after each other. We work hard, but we also know that support, warmth and fun is important. We try very hard to cater for the needs of a wide range of different personality types, with examples ranging from adapting our approach to meetings to better enable more introvert characters to get involved to understanding the wide range of communications preferences different people may have.
