The largest operator of district heating in western Europe, serving over 2 million customers, Vattenfall Heat provides low and zero carbon heating and cooling solutions for private developers and public sector clients.   Vattenfall is a Swedish-state owned utility and the 5th largest energy company in Europe.  We have a uniting and clear purpose, to deliver fossil free living for our customers and the societies in which we operate within one generation. 

Formed two years ago, the Vattenfall Heat team in the UK has secured its first major contracts and has a healthy pipeline and a reputation for disrupting and challenging the market- particularly in regards to driving environmental performance of heat solutions.

The Risk & Performance Manager plays a critical part in enabling the business to win and deliver large, long term contracts as Vattenfall moves to become the market leader in UK energy infrastructure, building on our existing extensive pan-European operations.

This exciting role comes at a time when the UK is seeking to transform the way deliver urban infrastructure in order to achieve the environmental impact needed to address the climate emergency – Vattenfall will be on the forefront of this transformation.

About the Role

As our Risk & Performance Manager in the Commercial & Strategy team, you will work across all projects of the business, from bid stage through to asset operation.  Responsible for the quality of risk and performance management of the entire business, you will bring rigour and challenge to the project and operational teams.  

Working closely with project teams in the regions you will help them to set strong risk and project performance strategies from bid stage onwards, and then will monitor and steer good risk and project performance management on those projects through their lifecycle until asset handover.  You will work closely with the commercial managers to develop standard risk positions and with the procurement team to ensure our risks are clearly mitigated where possible in our supply chain.

In addition, you will maintain the overall business risk matrix for the organisation in partnership with the Asset Management team.  As a result of your work the organisation will make better decisions throughout the project lifecycle and deals will be contracted faster, smoother and with better risk management at the heart of our decision making.
