As a Business Case Analyst Graduate in the Bid and Value Engineering Department, you will participate in a 2-year Rotational Program which will provide you a broad view of the offshore wind business, giving you the opportunity to advance your career at Avangrid Renewables. In the program, you will participate in job rotations in multiple departments within our Offshore business, including the potential for an overseas rotation with our global Offshore team.
The Business Case Analyst Graduate will work out of the Bid and Value Engineering Department, which is a key group within the Global Offshore Business focused on securing new lease areas, growing the business by competing in competitive solicitations, and maximizing the value and financial performance of large-scale offshore wind projects.
Through the Graduate program, this role will initially be staffed through the Bid and Value Engineering Department as a Business Case Analyst within an US offshore wind project, actively progressing through the development and contracting phase on a path to construction and operation. The responsibilities in this position will generally include review of highly sensitive pricing offers from a global supply chain, participation in contract negotiations, and the development of tools and processes which streamline the work of the team and get to the key factors of a decision more quickly and clearly. This is a very analysis-heavy role where success will require excellent interpersonal skills to work with a team of technical experts, along with a very strong interest and ability to develop Excel tools and models to capture, parse, and make decisions on data which drive the trajectory of the Project in many critical ways. A successful candidate will enjoy detailed analytical work with the desire to grow into strategic influencing and decision-making skills.
After an initial 12-month rotation within the Bid and Value Engineering Department, this position will participate in two additional six-month rotations in other departments within the business. The purpose of these rotations is to provide additional professional experience and breadth in areas which could include contracts, cost control, investment, or other positions that may be a good fit in need, skills, and candidate interests through the progression of the program.
After completing the 2-year Rotational Program, the Business Case Analyst Graduate can expect to have a broad understanding of offshore wind project development, engineering, financial decision making, and contracting structures at a multi-billion-dollar scale.
