Legal Manager for leading energy transaction firm

Fulltime – Expected start date August 1st 2024

Company and Job description

Are you ready to speed up the energy transition through hard work and a data-driven business mindset?

The world needs more renewable energy, and Our New Energy (ONE) is committed to facilitating this transition. ONE is one of the leading energy transaction advisory firms on market parity renewables in Europe, and we have ambitious growth plans.

We assist developers and investors in renewable energy in navigating the rapidly evolving energy market. We do this by providing clear and competent transaction advisory services. We offer result-oriented and tangible real-life solutions – not merely power point presentations and ideas.

At Our New Energy, the client is in focus and know that they can always expect us to deliver excellent work, no matter what.

As we navigate through the renewable energy transition, our business is continuously evolving, and we need to stay at the forefront of innovation.

Hence, if you are looking for an ambitious and dynamic environment alongside experienced colleagues with a strong drive and a mission to make an impact, then Our New Energy might be the right place for you.

 

Work Tasks

We are looking for a highly driven and business-oriented person to join our team and expand our reach even further. A few examples of your responsibilities:

  • Business Support: You will assist in client dialogs and prepare client and client onboarding.
  • Negotiation Support: You will assist our business teams and clients during PPA negotiations.
  • Streamlining and Managing Templates: You will be responsible for helping the company set new standard by managing and updating templates and processes.

 

What We Look For

Above all, we are looking for a colleague with the right personal match. We expect the successful candidate to have a strong quantitative background (legal) as well as meaningful experience or contact with the energy markets and/or renewables industry across Europe. We expect you to be:

  • Experienced: We are seeking a highly skilled and experienced legal professional to take on the role of Legal Manager at our company. The ideal candidate will be a qualified lawyer (with at least three years of training) or a new graduate with exceptional ability and a strong work ethic.
  • Business and data-driven: At ONE, we are entrepreneurs at heart, and we support decisions based on numbers. You must have a passion for seeing the results of your work and love the idea of leveraging data to determine what works and what does not.
  • English proficient: You are fluent in English, but the ideal candidate will also have proficiency in Italian and/or Spanish.
  • Resilient and precise: You are energetic, pay attention to detail, can work under pressure, and persevere through adversity until the job is done — and done well. Client is king at ONE, no question asked. We do not count the hours, but we make the hours count.
  • Passionate about sustainability: You have the ambition to change the world, and impacting the sector with your new ideas and concepts is an absolute thrill.
  • Humble: You are eager to help and contribute to the team, at times sharing the ‘not so fun’ tasks. You are open to feedback and truly value others’ opinions.

 

What We Offer

  • Impact: We have contributed to more than 4.5 billion Euros of new renewables investments reaching the market (in the last five years alone!).
  • Top-of-the-class team: You will be surrounded by an unparalleled level of talent and expertise in energy markets, all within the highly specialised sector of energy finance and sustainability business.
  • Diverse workday: Boredom doesn’t happen here. In ever-changing renewables investment strategies, you will most likely never experience a monotonous day, and you will never know what to expect from the energy market when you clock in.
  • International reach: Expanding from our core markets in Europe, we are present all over the world, so you will have the opportunity to work in very different markets. We expect you to be able to quickly adapt to negotiation habits from all over the world.
  • Fun: Because work is a huge part of our days, it is essential that it is fun. That is why we celebrate our success with various social events.
