  • negotiating lease contracts and securing the most optimal and flexible lease terms aligned with the business needs
  • supporting stakeholder management, acting as liaison between Ørsted, landlords and brokers, as well as internal stakeholder expectations and aligning with FM, P&D, Legal, and Global Insurance, etc.

To succeed in the role, you:

  • are an experienced transaction manager and have a proven track record as a manager of leasehold contracts
  • understand and display very good knowledge of the commercial real estate market, primarily across North America, and to a lesser extent globally
  • can manage stakeholder expectations and steer negotiations to the desired outcome, while keeping an eye on details
  • are conceptually skilled and have a firm understanding of key cost drivers and landlord perspectives
  • are proactive and curious, following existing processes whilst suggesting changes when needed
  • are collaborative, efficient, bright, perseverant, and have good communications skills to support your position in a global organization.

Join a global leader in renewable energy
Ørsted is a growing, green energy major and global leader in climate action. With us you’ll play a part in driving change towards a green energy future.

Shape the future with us
Send your application to us no later than October 16, 2022. We’ll be conducting interviews on a continuous basis and reserve the right to take down the advert when we have found the right candidate.

If you need to request any adjustments to working practices, working patterns, or the assessment or interview process we're happy to discuss alternative arrangements.

We’re a global organization and even if the majority of daily work will be in NA, with some domestic travel being necessary, you can also expect a lesser degree of international travel. Moreover, flexibility with time zones is needed since the current team is currently located in DK and UK, with further global growth anticipated.
