- Managing the competitive tendering process from A to Z (incl. review of offers, negotiation with candidates, managing the award process and contract finalisation),
- Overseeing project implementation and following-up the real performance versus the contractually agreed).
You are focused on timely project delivery, quality throughout the process and customer satisfaction.
In addition, you will:
- Participate in European, national or regional innovation and R&D projects (e.g. Horizon2020, Innoviris Living Labs, Flux50), focused around innovative energy services, performance-based contracting and innovative third party financing solutions.
- Assist in project proposal and manage work packages and tasks, in close collaboration with other Energinvest consultants and national and international partners.
