    • working closely with professional advisors and key stakeholders in a transaction setting, including legal and financial advisors, consultants, and internal stakeholders

If you have a high achievement drive and an entrepreneurial mindset, combined with a track record in investments and a natural interest in a global green economy, then this could be the opportunity for you.

To be successful in this role, you will have:

  • 5 years’ of experience in energy, investment banking or private equity, ideally with hands on experience in M&A activities
