European Electricity Procurement Manager

Part of INEOS, INOVYN is Europe's leading producer of vinyls and in the top three worldwide.  With an annual turnover of €3.1 billion, INOVYN has circa 4,200 employees and manufacturing, sales and marketing operations in 8 countries across Europe.

INOVYN’s portfolio consists of an extensive range of class-leading products arranged across General Purpose Vinyls; Specialty Vinyls; Organic Chlorine Derivatives; Chlor Alkali; Sulphur Chemicals; Salt; and Electrochemical and Vinyls Technologies.  INOVYN's annual commercial production volume is circa 10 million tonnes.  See www.inovyn.com and www.ineos.com  for more details.

This is a direct Company recruitment.  We will not accept applications via employment agencies.

The postholder will contribute to the development and execution of INOVYN’s electricity procurement strategy and maximise revenues by identifying and implementing new (energy-related) opportunities.  Electricity is a key raw material for the chlor-alkali process and represents the single largest variable cost of an electrochemical unit.  Procurement of competitive electricity supplies is therefore essential to the performance of the business.

  • Support local Energy Managers to execute the strategy at their respective sites.
  • Provide energy market opinion and develop forecasts to inform and underpin INOVYN’s business strategy.
  • Understand and monitor energy markets including emerging “green” markets and provide advice to inform and support the development of INOVYN’s sustainability strategy.
  • Understand and assess emerging energy and environmental legislation and develop strategies and plans to minimise costs or maximise opportunities through advocacy or legal avoidance.
  • Negotiate key energy contracts.
  • Identify, assess and implement new sources of revenue associated with energy and electricity.

Qualifications and Experience:

  • Engineering, science or business degree with a minimum 5 years’ experience in a commercial or techno-commercial role.
  • Proven energy related knowledge/experience, e.g. energy markets, energy and environmental regulation, energy procurement, energy technologies (preferred).
  • Able to assemble and analyse fundamental commodity data, macroeconomic forecasts and policy information to produce short, medium and long-term electricity price forecasts.
  • Able to communicate complex information internally and externally at all levels in a clear and concise manner, recognising audiences are often non-expert.
  • Experience of major contract negotiation and contract law.
