About the job

Would you like to use your commercial talents to help accelerate frontrunning green innovations?

An increasing number of businesses, knowledge institutes and governments is contributing to the transition towards a more sustainable Europe. We help European green frontrunners to achieve their goals by developing projects, attracting public funding and by providing innovation and business intelligence. To cope with our current growth, we are looking for new commercial talent that helps us understand our client’s needs and optimizes our services accordingly. The ideal candidate is equally dedicated to create commercial success for EGEN as to contributing to the energy transition, a circular economy and/or sustainable transport.

In your work, strong long-term relationships are key and you will enjoy proactively managing them with our clients:

  • Maintaining a constant dialogue with our clients to understand their needs and challenges and to identify opportunities for added value by EGEN.
  • Monitoring European and Dutch funding programs as well as new services developed by EGEN that might be of interest to our clients.
  • Initiating client projects that capitalize on the identified funding or services opportunities.
  • Preparing and presenting management updates on accounts and business.
  • Delivering pitches to prospective clients.
  • Monitoring client budget, explaining costs or expenditures and discussing new terms if necessary.
  • Following-up with clients to ensure their satisfaction with EGEN’s products and services.

EGEN is a subsidiary of PNO Group. EGEN contributes by supporting its clients in accelerating their sustainable projects within the energy, environment and mobility sector. Whether we help to find a possible grant, the right grant strategy, write an application or calculate a business case, our enthusiastic consultants are ready to share their knowledge and ensure that the project will be a success. With our experience with both national and European projects, we know exactly how we can best assist.

EGEN means “intrinsic” and that is exactly what sets us apart, whether it is energy transition, circular economy or sustainable mobility: our consultants are strongly driven to contribute to a better climate and environment. This intrinsic motivation reveals itself in many ways and is not limited to just work.

Why this job suits you

  • You have an intrinsic motivation to achieve sustainable impact.
  • You are creative and you easily recognize opportunities.
  • You enjoy client-facing activities and commercial achievements that increase client satisfaction.
  • You have affinity with account management and are capable of creating lasting relationships.
  • Ideally, you already have a proven commercial track record.
  • You have or are willing to develop knowledge of funding schemes and sustainable technologies.
  • You have an academic degree, for example in business administration, economics, innovation sciences, sustainable energy technology, engineering or physics.
  • You have 2 to 5 years of professional and commercial experience.
  • You are fluent in both English and Dutch.
