WHO WE ARE
Magnus Energy works on a bright future. Building a strong energy system in which renewables are fully incorporated. Helping to balance sustainability, security, and affordability. Navigating the ever-evolving energy transition.
We employ the best and brightest energy experts. Bringing in-depth knowledge of energy markets and systems. Using our capability to create trust and progress. Acting as independent guides.
We help make strategic decisions, using our insights of the European electricity landscape. Our (technical) experts help conceptualise changes in the electricity market, grids and regulations. We manage complex multi-party programs, creating trust and progress in international cooperation. Also, we support individual organisations in navigating the energy transition.
We are specialised in supporting key players in the energy sector, including system operators, market entities, traders, and flexibility providers. With a prominent presence in the European electricity industry, we hold a solid reputation. For instance, we actively support projects related to the governance of European electricity market coupling where all European TSOs and Power Exchanges are represented and various other consortia on their programs and projects.
Our goal is to expand our services and strengthen our position as Pan-European consultancy firm. Over the past few years, we have developed Technical Advisory services, attracting key experts and advanced our pool of consultants. Building upon this foundation, we aim to accelerate the growth of this practice. Focusing on market and grid data analysis, business analysis, investment decision support, and impact assessments.
We seek a Director who embodies vision and ambition to drive the growth of this practice alongside our existing team. You'll play an important role in our company's growth strategy, collaborating closely with current partners responsible for other practices.

You will support clients and international project teams. In a fast-paced environment, you will lead a team that can provide high-quality analysis of markets, grids, investments, and commercialization strategies (among others, also using energy system models).
Your key challenge in this role is to further develop our technical (quantitative and model-based) advisory team, project portfolio and service offering.
You are expected to have experience and ability to (I) develop a vision based on the input from clients and stakeholders (existing and potential ones), (II) define new services to help clients (III) grow the team and (IV) possibly develop the tools to do this successfully. Moreover, you also have an extensive network to enrich the already existing client base.
