deadline - 24 hours

Details

Description

Are you an organised, bright, and enthusiastic individual looking to start your career in the renewable energy sector? If so, we have an exciting opportunity for you to take that first step towards project development, learning site-selection and assessment techniques and development support skills. 

Aura Power is a leading global developer of renewable energy projects, founded in 2013 and headquartered in Bristol, UK. We develop large scale solar and battery storage projects in the UK, Canada, the USA, Italy, Portugal, Lithuania, Spain and Ireland, working closely with landowners and local stakeholders to develop our sites to the highest standards. Our projects are delivered with local knowledge and expertise and offer benefits to the local communities as well as including measures to enhance the natural environment. By focusing on best-in-class development processes and technology we have delivered a truly scalable development model and our team prides itself on managing and developing the highest quality solar and battery storage projects globally. 


About the role

The Development and Business Support Team (DBS) plays a key role within Aura, providing specialist and technical support to the development, business and management teams. From providing detailed screening of potential sites for development, through document & data management, provision of technical drawings & live project information and reporting, to coordinating CfD and Capacity Market registration/pre-qualification and managing sale/financing data rooms and Q&A processes, we are involved in every stage of the development process. 

As part of the DBS, this position is primarily focused on supporting the business teams, but as the role of the DBS is varied and continually evolving, you will also receive training in other aspects of the development process and can expect to be providing support across all areas of the business from time to time. 

Responsibilities  

Typical duties will include, but will not be limited to, the following:

  • Collaboration with development teams to maintain project folders
  • Review and maintenance of project databases
  • Assistance with project sales – data rooms and Q&A
  • Process development
  • Assistance with preparation of monthly reports
  • Collation of data in response to ad hoc information requests
  • Site identification and analysis, providing recommendations on sites to progress

This position would best suit an individual with at least two years’ experience within a similar role. The successful candidate is likely to be a graduate or someone with strong skills and experience looking for a career change - what matters most to us is that you have an obvious interest in renewable energy, a keen eye for detail and can learn quickly. You will also need to be adaptable, process-driven, highly organised and capable of working on your own initiative. So, if you believe that you have the skills and experience that we are looking for, and can prove it, we would very much like to hear from you. 

Essential requirements for this role

Your CV and cover letter should evidence all of the following: 

  • Ability to work in the UK
  • A clear interest in renewable energy 
  • A keen eye for detail
  • Confidence in all aspects of spreadsheet and document preparation and experience using advanced functions of GSheets or Excel
  • Excellent numerical and analytical skills 
  • Strong organisational skills
  • Excellent time management skills and the ability to handle a varied workload
  • Experience in a similar role

Desirable

  • Experience of renewable energy document control/due diligence
  • Experience using QGIS (or similar) and advanced functions of GoogleEarth

Salary and Location

  • £30,000-£40,000

This is a full-time role primarily based in our Bristol office, but with some home-working likely to be the norm.
