About the job

As a Junior Innovation Consultant, you main goals are to make the connection between innovation and investment projects and the many financing possibilities that are available, as well as writing high quality financing/grant applications.
In practice this means that you discuss with clients about their innovations relating to topics such as circular economy, renewable energy, smart cities and waste management, in order to find out what financing options are available to them. You will advise our clients on the possibilities and convince them that you are the right party to write the application.

  • Assessing opportunities to accelerate the green innovations of our clients, specifically in the domains of Energy, Environment or Sustainable Mobility.
  • Translating your clients’ sustainability ambitions into effective technical solutions and work in teams to develop unique innovative projects, with a major positive impact.
  • Drafting high-quality project plans, reports, funding applications, or business cases in direct coordination with clients.
  • Supporting the growth of EGEN by means of business development or by strengthening/development of our (new) 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 have a university degree in a sustainability-related subject, economics/innovation sciences, or in one of our business areas.
  • You have strong analytical skills, like communicating about science and can think critically.
  • You speak and write fluently Dutch and English.
