Successful investment company within solar energy
Taking on the position as Nordic Solar Management’s (NSM) new Business Development Manager, you help the company expand the business into new markets, among others, by working closely with potential co-development partners.

Thus, your main responsibilities are:
- To assess and analyse pre-RTB project opportunities offered by potential co-development partners
- To, independently, seek out and analyse new project opportunities
- To establish and develop selected pre-RTB project opportunities
Working with these areas of responsibilities, you take the lead in contract negotiations as well as in regard to related financial implications. Thus, you are expected to carry out financial modelling as part of the origination processes. In addition, you do the preparation of presentations for stakeholders, management and Board of Directors.
Likewise, you structure the co-development cooperation frameworks encompassing the monitoring and coordination of the development processes also ensuring milestone completion. As a consequence, the position holds an evident focus on developing and maintaining the network of potential partners in Europe and beyond; thus, travelling activity must be expected.
