Site Manager, Netherlands & Scandinavia
€60000 - €70000 per annum

The Client
My client is active in the Dutch, Scandinavian, and Spanish solar markets. They focus on the development, construction, and operation of high-quality solar power plants in these areas. They do this by fostering close relationships with residents, municipalities, and other interested parties. This allows them to create the maximum possible impact on the local population with every installation. They have realised ground-mounted; commercial-scale rooftop; carport solutions; and floating systems in every region they have focused on.
Their aim is to face each challenge with a dynamic and innovative character, which means they can respond quickly to market changes. Ultimately, they want to be seen as disruptors of the “status quo” in the solar market. They do this by bringing together the best technologies and knowledge across the entire value chain. Managing the potential risks and achieve healthy returns on their investments.
The Role
In this role, you were be assisting my client’s growing EPC team with their construction of ground-mounted, commercial-scale rooftop, carport, and floating solar projects. These projects range in size from 200KW up to 10MW and in location. In this position, you will spend most of your time focused on the Dutch solar market but a recent surge in solar carport projects in Scandinavia has seen an increase in responsibility for this role. This means you will gain more international exposure in this position, then you would at other Dutch solar businesses.
Over the next 12 months, you will be managing a minimum of 3 solar projects at any given time. These installations will be on commercial-scale rooftops; on the water; and on carports. Therefore you will have an exciting mix of technical challenges. Therefore, we’re looking for someone who has experience with large scale solar installations in the Netherlands.
You will be joining a growing (but small) team in my client’s Amsterdam office. My client is investing heavily in its EPC capabilities so in 5 years you could see yourself being promoted to the head of the technical business unit. There is a clear path progression, for the right candidate.
The Requirements
  • Over 2 years’ experience in the solar market
  • Proven track record of solar project/site management for installations over 3MW
  • Familiar with Health & Safety (HSE) procedures in the Netherlands
  • Bachelors’ Degree in a Civil, Mechanical, or Electrical Engineering
  • VCA VOL Certificate Holder
  • Fluent in Dutch and English
  • Willingness to travel across the Netherlands and internationally, when required
If your background and experience match all of the above requirements, please send your CV to I look forward to hearing from you!
