Site & Land Rights Manager for offshore wind farms and associated infrastructure
Would you like to take up the challenge of delivering and managing the land and 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/proximity agreements. From harbour leases to cable easements and major oil pipeline crossing agreements, the department works on diverse and challenging projects across all our existing and new markets.
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 land and other agreements
- deliver and implement compulsory purchase, expropriation or eminent domain 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, if necessary.
Your competences include that you
- have extensive experience in land and commercial negotiations in the energy or 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 (e.g. cables, pipelines, telecoms, onshore or offshore oil and gas, road or railway schemes)
- speak and write English fluently
- thrive in an international environment and are able to create good relationships with your stakeholders.
Ideally, you’re a Chartered Surveyor or have an International Rights of Way Association accreditation, and you also possess project management qualifications.
It’s desirable that you have experience of negotiating crossing and proximity agreements with pipeline and cable owners. Preferably, you’ve worked in a corporate environment where land and real estate are not primary functions. Due to our expanding work in new markets, competences in Traditional Chinese or eligibility to undertake work in the USA would be considered an advantage.
