Unit Manager Transport
Ecofys Utrecht is looking for a Unit Manager for our unit Transport
Globally, the demand for transportation is large and growing, resulting in a growing energy demand with substantial impact on the environment. The Transport Unit of Ecofys delivers sustainable transport solutions. This requires know how on policy strategies that significantly influences emissions from transport and interactions with the energy supply systems associated with electric transport on an international scale.
As a Unit Manager you are responsible for market development and client relations, unit performance, content development and people management. You manage a small team of people, ranging from junior consultant to expert, that is situated in Utrecht and cooperating with expertise in Berlin. You steer the sales process and the project execution process and are yourself actively involved in acquisition and stakeholder management. The strategy for this unit is directed at growth in new working areas. You are capable of directing this growth, inspiring others and making use of the available synergies within the company.
The unit Transport delivers services ranging from concrete implementation advice for local governments to strategic advice to corporate clients on their mobility or logistic sustainability options. Currently the main clients are large local governments, transport organizations and national corporate clients. We want to expand the working area to the transport policy of the European Commission, and business clients that want to be frontrunners in making transport fully sustainable. Last year our range of projects included the wide scale introduction of the use of (green) natural gas in heavy duty transport, the green driver challenge to influence driver’s behaviour in a business environment and transport scenario’s in 2050.
You have an academic background and 7 years or more of relevant working experience, preferably in the consultancy business. You demonstrate business sense and are able to steer the unit’s performance. You are known for your leadership qualities and could act as a role model for Ecofys.
You are able to show vision on the challenges in the transport domain and can translate this into a concrete business plan.
A network in transport and logistics and good knowledge of potential partners/competitors would be an advantage.
