Job Description

Due to our energy consulting business growth, we are looking for great people to join our team of energy technical and market consultants in Madrid office in coordination with other renewable energy AFRY teams globally.

The work will encompass a wide variety of projects including technical due diligence of solar and wind assets over the world for a range of clients such as banks, funds, private equity investors. Experience and motivation to work on market and regulatory analysis in Spain, Portugal and Latam countries as well as market due diligence on renewable projects will also be valuable.

You will have the opportunity to gain knowledge and experience to become an industry specialist within a stimulating and supportive environment. Our team specialises in all aspects of the energy transition. We offer technical, strategic and commercial advice, develop policy and regulations, model systems and markets and support transactions. We pride ourselves on our in-depth analysis and strong client relationships.

Often the work is office based but there are many opportunities to travel for shorter trips for client meetings or for entire projects where work is on the client site. You will join AFRY Management Consulting, the leading advisor to the world’s energy, forest and bio-based industries. Our dedicated team of over 350 consultants, across 17 offices on 3 continents, provides strategic and operational advice across the value chain, underpinned by deep expertise and market insights. AFRY group is more than 17,000 employees. For individuals looking for international experience we can also offer secondments to other offices.

Below we explain the main skills that we look for in our analysts/consultants:

  • Minimum working experience of 3-4 years Engineer specialized in renewables (solar and wind) with previous experience of working in a consulting environment, preferably in multi-disciplinary teams.
  • Having performed roles such as technical advisor/owner´s engineer of renewables assets (solar and wind).
  • Having lead the delivery of technical due diligence of mainly solar and wind assets (design review, energy yield estimations, contracts review, environmental review, economic review, etc.).
  • Expert knowledge of typical tools used to perform energy yield assessments of solar and wind (PVSyst and WasP).
  • Good knowledge of renewable energy market, in Spain and other key geographies and up-to-date knowledge of developments and trends in energy sectors.
  • We undertake a lot of complex analysis, a good proportion of which is numerical, so we are looking for people with an aptitude for quantitative and qualitative analysis. This includes the ability to pay attention to detail and use MS Excel proficiently.
  • Virtually all the work we do requires team working so if you have good communication skills and the ability to work well with others within a project team and wider office environment you will fit in well.
  • Being fluent in Spanish and English is a must; on the one hand our clients are mainly located in Spanish speaking countries, and on the other hand and our work requires day-to-day collaboration – in English – with other AFRY offices.
  • In addition, report-writing is a core part of our work and so we are also looking for the ability to explain complex information in a clear and logical way in English using both Word and Powerpoint.
  • You will be working in a commercial environment against budgets and deadlines so you will need to be able to think for yourself, be pro-active and have a business-oriented mind-set.
  • The ability to speak other languages is also an advantage.
  • You must have a right to live and work in Spain.

In AFRY Management Consulting we offers a competitive salary, a performance related bonus scheme and an excellent range of benefits, including 25 days holiday each year rising to 30 with continued service.

As part of your online application process, please provide a CV and covering letter stating why you want to work for AFRY and your salary expectations. We only accept online applications.

If we think you could be a good fit for the organisation you will be invited for a telephone interview following which, if we are both happy to continue the process, you will then be invited to a face to face interview. To allow us to assess your skills in practice this will be accompanied by Excel, Word and analytical reasoning exercises. In addition you will have the chance to have an informal chat with some of our team members to find out more about what it is like to work at AFRY.
