Contract Type

Join our Green Investment Group as a highly motivated Commercial Director to help the Group support the transition to a low carbon, sustainable global economy. This is a London-based role, but with the option to be based in another location with frequent travel to London. Initially, you will work in the Energy Technology team supporting the Senior Vice President in the development of the e-mobility business. Ultimately, it is envisaged that this role will transfer in to a dedicated EV platform business at which point, as Commercial Director, you will be responsible for establishing and leading high performing teams tasked with delivering electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure projects and services, to both public and private sector B2B clients, across Europe.  

Reporting to the Senior Vice President / CEO, you will ultimately be responsible for the commercial success and performance of the e-mobility business (EV platform company) and for driving growth in markets across Europe. You will be a key member of the senior leadership team tasked with building long-term strategies and teams capable of delivering across core functions such as product development, sales, commercial contract negotiation and management and marketing.

In your role as a Commercial Director, you will interface with wider internal teams, clients, partners, suppliers and consultancies and will be expected to be an ambassador for the business during any external engagement. You will be responsible for the contractual sign-off for various commercial projects and initiatives and for providing guidance and leadership to direct reports and colleagues more widely. You will take a data led approach to defining KPIs and measuring performance of your teams and business activities and communicate this through regular, high-quality reporting. You will take a hands-on approach to generating leads and closing deals whilst ensuring that all governance and safe-guards are met. As a Commercial Director, you will be highly motivated to innovate and explore new value pools by constantly considering new services and propositions.

For success in this role, you will have significant experience of building and leading successful commercial teams and businesses. You will have a strong track record of securing multi-million pound contracts from both the private and public sector and through direct contracts and competitive tenders. You will be capable of structuring and negotiating complex commercial deals and have experience of building and managing relationships at the most senior levels. The successful candidate is expected to have significant experience in e-mobility fleets, infrastructure and services sector. Experience of working in the energy sector and large infrastructure projects for both public and private sector clients is also welcome.

Ideally, you will have experience of working in European markets and associated language skills are highly regarded.

Transfer within EV Business

We anticipate that in 2022 your employment may transfer to the company which is being incorporated to house GIG’s European EV Platform, along with other employees of the Employer who are assigned to that business.  The Employer will provide information to you regarding the terms of that transfer in due course.
