A bit about Field

To reach Net Zero, we need to solve big challenges - like how to store energy, solve grid intermittency, and heat our homes without fossil fuels. And, if we’re going to prevent climate catastrophe, we need to do this now. Field will fund, build and operate the renewable infrastructure we need to tackle these challenges. 

We’re starting with energy storage, with a portfolio of batteries in the UK and Europe. Storage is critical to the future success of renewable energy; it allows us to store renewable energy for when it's needed, creating a more reliable, flexible and green grid.

We need to massively accelerate the deployment of storage assets. At Field, we will show that batteries are a totally viable part of our energy infrastructure - now, not in some distant future. And, we have ambitious plans to become the defining new clean energy player in Europe over the next few years, gradually expanding beyond batteries into new asset types

Role Overview

Following a successful 18 months of project development, Field has over 3GW of projects at varying stages of development spread across the UK and further developments in Italy. 

Having successfully commissioned our first project in Oldham, and with more projects coming on line over the next year, Field is looking to grow its project delivery team.  Supported by an internal team of industry specialists and construction professionals you’ll have the opportunity to join one of the UK’s fastest growing developer, owner operators. 

In this role, you will be project managing the construction of our battery storage projects from the end of the development phase through to the start of commercial operations. Our projects are large, valuable and cutting edge.  This is a fantastic opportunity to be directly involved in the energy transition. 

You would report directly to our Head of Construction, (Michael) and be supported by specialists on topics such as health and safety, electrical engineering, grid code, battery systems, planning, procurement, legal and commercial management.

Main Responsibilities

Core to Field’s mission is constructing assets.  This role is right at the heart of that mission. Key responsibilities include:

Managing the pre-construction phase of the project (following project development)

  • Primarily focused on managing an internal project team in the lead up to construction contract signatures
  • Supporting the discharge of planning conditions by working closely with the development team
  • Supporting the procurement team in the lead-up to contract signatures
  • Prepare pre-construction information and other key HSE docs
  • Develop and own the pre-construction risk register, schedule and budget
  • Review our tender documentation to ensure we have learnt lessons from the past
  • Ensure contractor’s proposals are fit for purpose and aligned with our ER’s
  • Responding to queries raised through lender due diligence

Managing the construction phase to meet agreed time, quality and budget targets

  • Discharge our Client duties under the CDM regulations
  • Ensure our health & safety culture and policies are embedded in our projects
  • Manage our construction contracts, including the BESS supplier, BoP/EPC contractor, DNO/TO and any other packages of work required for the project
  • Undertake Client responsibilities within our projects, eg. managing variations to planning and coordination of free-issue equipment such as telecoms and fiscal metres
  • Reviewing and tracking contractual variations and extensions of time
  • Ensure key project management documents are regularly reviewed and updated

Ensure the project seamlessly enters commercial operation

  • Manage our engineering resource and contractors to develop and implement a commissioning and energisation plan
  • Coordinate with our commercial operations team on revenue readiness activities including appointment of a supplier and optimiser (including installation of hardware they require), grant of a generation licence, and prequalification for participation in ancillary services
  • Support pre-qualification for the Capacity Market

Key Project Management documents

  • Prepare weekly bulletins and detailed monthly reports for our board and lenders
  • Keep an up to date project master programme
  • Keep an up to date project risk register
  • Keep track of the project budget and forecast of future spend

A bit about you

  • You love Gantt charts, risk registers and attending site!
  • You enjoy project managing a range of disciplines, maybe outside your area of expertise
  • You’re an open, clear communicator (written and verbal) who enjoys working collaboratively - there are no ‘lone wolves’ at Field, we’re all in this together
  • You’re very organised - you’ll be spinning a few plates at once, so you’ll need to have tried and tested methods for keeping on top of a varied workload at your fingertips
  • You’re enthusiastic, curious and knowledgeable about the energy storage industry

Essential Skills 

  • You have managed the construction delivery of energy projects previously (minimum 2)
  • Very strong project management skill set
  • Ability to take pragmatic and proactive approach to health, safety and quality management
  • Good commercial mind 
  • Sound understanding of construction safety and CDM regulations
  • You are familiar with managing contractors deliverables (time, budget, scope) using a FIDIC, NEC or similar types of contract

Helpful Skills (not essential)

  • Electrical engineering background
  • Specific experience on BESS projects
  • Experience of project-finance requirements 

Why join us?

  • Genuine impact: You will actually be building and operating the renewable infrastructure we need to reach net zero. This is not a green CSR initiative, but a company that is taking a leading role in building one of the critical solutions to a generational problem.
  • Make things happen: We are still a relatively early stage company, and you will have significant accountability to make things happen from day one. You will have a lot of autonomy, will learn quickly, and be given a LOT of room to grow.
  • Define a new industry: The energy market is in a paradigm shift right now, evolving at a breathtaking pace, and you will play a leading role in defining how that market evolves and innovates over the next few years. 
  • Exceptional team: We are an eclectic team with varied backgrounds. We have experience scaling billion dollar tech start-ups and building energy companies, as well as deep specialisms in the energy markets. You will learn from and work with a bunch of fun, curious, and entrepreneurial people who really want to make an impact.
