Energy Markets Manager


We are currently recruiting for an Energy Markets Manager, a newly created position within our Living Utilities business and is a permanent role based on site at our Barangaroo offices.

The Energy Market Services team will provide support to Lendlease as a group and its individual business units, to achieve their commercial objectives where they can be enabled through existing and emerging opportunities within the energy industry and markets. Where the different business units may have divergent commercial drivers, the Energy Markets Manager’s role is to uncover common ground and essential differences to develop an inclusive strategy that works for all. Supported by our Living Utilities team, you’ll have a varied position and provide innovative solutions on many platforms. Importantly, this is a greenfield team and role; as such, the immediate challenges associated with the role include:

  • understanding the different drivers of Lendlease’s business units and Lendlease as a whole and identify and implement solutions that deliver on those objectives;
  • performing a key change management role in building up Lendlease’s risk appetite and generating support to pursue opportunities to manage risks and exploit opportunities in the energy markets;
  • ensuring a strong track record of delivery and ‘doing what we say we will do’ to build confidence in the Energy Market Services team as a trusted advisor and reliable contributor to Lendlease’s success; and
  • establishing the procurement strategy for 2020 and beyond and commence the analysis and consultation necessary to implement that strategy.

We’re seeking a driven, organised and motivated leader, who will juggle multiple priorities and stakeholders with ease and can evidence experience across commercial, business and leadership competencies. You’ll enjoy bringing ideas to the table when liaising with the wider leadership and business teams, with a passion for generating outcomes for customers. You will be able to drive, lead and implement solutions effectively and have discipline to manage deadlines and prioritise work by being flexible and adaptable to external pressures.

We are seeking an experienced individual with Energy markets experience – retail or wholesale (buying or selling) – preferably in the Australian market. A sound awareness of the electricity market current state and future opportunities will be required alongside procurement exposure and knowledge related to energy category management (or a similar commodity). You will also be experienced in investment/opportunity analysis and be able to confidently present on this.

This is an exciting opportunity for someone who is keen to make a difference.

Lendlease is a diverse, flexible and inclusive employer of choice. We engage, enable and empower our people. Inclusion sets all of us up for success.
