Civil Engineering Manager for onshore facilities

Imagine a future where you’ll be a part of the journey to increase our production of green energy offshore turbines directly to UK consumers

Join us in this role where you’ll become Civil Engineering Manager in our Onshore Substation team. We’re responsible for managing design/engineering and construction activities for onshore works such as onshore substations, maintenance facilities, and other onshore construction projects to support our offshore wind farm operation, from design and construction until handover to our operating team.

Welcome to the Onshore Substation team

You’ll be part of Civil Engineering Management as Senior Technical Project Lead. You’ll report to the Package Project Manager, and you’ll be working in a team of 12 bright and caring engineers located in four different countries. Together with your colleagues, you’ll be directly responsible for the onshore substation in relation to all civil matters pertaining to design, layout, construction, and interfaces. Additionally, you must ensure that all input and constraints from internal stakeholders are available in due time, from feasibility and concept studies to detailed design and construction follow-up.

You’ll play an important role in:

  • establishing the time schedule, cost, and resource plans for the conceptual phase, detailed design, and construction of the onshore substation, including project scope layout and statements
  • ensuring procurement of contracts in collaboration with contract managers, including facilitating stakeholder meetings and ensuring that internal requirements are reflected in the layout and design
  • proactively ensuring that engineering and construction works in collaboration with construction managers are carried out based on balanced contracts, and that they are optimised for time, costs, and QHSE
  • informing the project management team of all significant technical issues, particularly risks
  • developing contingency plans and overseeing management of changes in the design and construction phases
  • ensuring that project deliverables are executed in compliance with our company processes and that standards are handed over to operational and maintenance.

To succeed in the role, you:

  • have substation experience as civil engineer manager, construction contractor, or engineering consultant and have insight in the project phases: concept evaluation, design and engineering, and construction
  • have experience in collaboration with an external design team in managing and executing a contract and in designing or constructing onshore substations or service and production buildings via physical and virtual meetings across central Europe
  • are used to handling, coordinating, and creating good relationships and engaging with internal and external stakeholders while proactively ensuring project execution
  • preferably have experience with 3D/BIM modelling as a user to make comments in 3D design models
  • preferably have knowledge with innovative design methods and still have a basic and analytical work approach with a focus on QHSE and cost effectiveness.
