Site & Land Rights Manager for offshore wind farms and associated infrastructure

Would you like to take up the challenge in delivering and managing the land and rights agreements that enable the construction and operations of our offshore wind farms?

Join us and become Site & Land Rights Manager in Land & Property which is responsible for land acquisition and cable crossing and proximity agreements. From harbour leases to cable easements and major oil pipeline crossing agreements, you and your colleagues will work on diverse and challenging projects across all our existing and new markets.

Land & Property is part of Wind Power which has 1800 employees and is one of four business units in DONG Energy. Wind Power is the world’s largest developer and operator of offshore wind power, and we use our unique knowledge in all phases of our wind turbine projects. During the last 20 years, we have developed and constructed the largest portfolio of offshore wind farms in Northern Europe.

You may choose freely to be based at our London office in the United Kingdom, or alternatively at our office in Gentofte in the Greater Copenhagen area in Denmark, both on local terms and conditions. However, you should expect some travelling in relation to your work.

Your key tasks will be to

  • advise projects on the approach to land acquisition including budgets and programmes
  • manage consultants undertaking transactions on the company’s behalf
  • personally handle high value or high risk negotiations
  • ensure that construction and operational activities comply with the land and other agreements
  • deliver and implement compulsory purchase and expropriation powers if required.

In addition you will advise on the land and real estate elements of M&A activities, manage and provide instructions to external lawyers, and deputise for the Head of Land & Property as required.

Your qualifications and core competences include that you

  • have extensive experience with land and commercial negotiations in the energy and infrastructure sectors
  • have experience in managing suppliers and consultants delivering transactions on your behalf
  • have experience of working for a developer on energy or infrastructure projects, eg cables, pipelines, telecoms, onshore or offshore oil & gas, road or railway schemes
  • speak and write English fluently.

Ideally, you will be a Chartered Surveyor from a recognised institute for chartered surveyors or have an International Rights of Way Association accreditation, and possess a project management qualification.

It is desirable that you have experience of working on the negotiation of crossing and proximity agreements with pipeline and cable owners. Preferrably you should have worked in a corporate environment where land and real estate are not primary functions. Due to our expanding work in new markets competency in Mandarin Chinese or Dutch would be considered an advantage.

In DONG Energy Wind Power, we have a high level of expertise and many complex and challenging work tasks. We work goal-oriented and efficiently with some of the world's largest offshore wind projects, and we are committed to reducing the cost of electricity.
