Enea is a boutique strategy consultancy dedicated to enabling the energy transition in alignment with climate objectives. We are driven by our purpose and strong values, team spirit, and high standards of delivery.

We work with clients across the energy value chain, including government agencies, utilities, tech start-ups, energy retailers, financial institutions, investors and large energy consumers. Our client engagements cover topics such as renewable distributed generation, energy storage, hydrogen, energy efficiency, green gas, waste management, energy transition financing and energy access. We help our clients seize opportunities and mitigate risks arising from the shift towards a decarbonised, decentralised, digitised and democratised energy sector.

The successful applicant will join a high performing, diverse and global team dedicated to accelerating the energy transition and addressing climate change, across our offices in Melbourne, Sydney, Paris, London, Hong Kong and Singapore. Our people come from a wide variety of backgrounds and experience, are open-minded and focused on the future, united by shared values and passionate about sustainable development and energy access. Like us, you are driven to make a positive impact through your work.

We are looking for a passionate, engaging and ambitious Manager to join our team in either Sydney or Melbourne.

Your role as a Manager will see you supervise projects, take on business responsibilities and deepen your expertise across energy transition and climate change topics.

Typically, you will work on:

Project management and delivery

  • Leading projects with varying level of complexity depending on your seniority level. You will provide or contribute to providing final recommendations, ensure quality project delivery and assist clients as needed.
  • Supervising project teams of Consultants and Senior Consultants, ensuring their up-skilling, coaching and development.

Business development (depending on experience and seniority)

  • Managing client relationships to better understand their needs, identifying opportunities for value creation and promoting Enea’s expertise and competencies in strategy consulting.
  • Overseeing commercial proposals. This will include proposing and drafting relevant methodologies for project completion.
  • Pro-actively seeking and helping to secure new business opportunities through ongoing client relationships and through building and maintaining professional networks.

Corporate Strategy / Team Management / Internal Development (depending on experience and seniority)

  • Developing further knowledge/thought leadership and know-how, based on your areas of interest within Enea’s areas of specialisation.
  • Collaborating with Enea’s global team across our offices to ensure consistent delivery of high-quality work in alignment with Enea’s values.
  • Developing corporate strategy, plans, organisation and/or process design and ensure effective implementation, such as in communications, skill development, knowledge sharing and training.

  • Microgrids market study and go-to-market strategy – support to identify the most attractive countries in Asia for C&I microgrids, assess the market opportunity, and develop the go-to-market strategy for the new venture between an international technology supplier and global investment fund.

  • Australian DER market study and go-to-market strategy – analysis of the Australian DER market and its likely evolution in the future, and identification of opportunities for new positionings in Australia’s future distributed smart grid. Ongoing support with go-to-market strategy within the distributed energy space.
