Job description

We at Vattenfall Eldistribution are looking for you who want to work at the forefront of the energy transition that is now taking place and who are passionate about developing long-term customer relationships.

The energy transition towards a fossil-free future places great demands on electricity grid companies. The use of electricity will double and this will entail a major expansion of the existing electricity network. Electricity production must be converted to renewables and industry/transport electrified to a greater degree. This places great demands on those of us who work at Vattenfall Eldistribución, and therefore we need to strengthen the Large Consumers group within the Customer Relations department with another business engineer.

The role of Business Engineer

The group is responsible for larger withdrawal customers with normal energy tax, who connect to Vattenfall's regional network, the majority of these customers are network companies. The increased need for power combined with the fact that there is a lack of capacity in more and more areas is one of the challenges we face. The groups' tasks include managing relationships with our existing customers, but also being involved and driving the projects and dialogues regarding new connections and power expansions.

Some of your main duties:

  • Run and keep connection projects together in the early stages and be responsible for signing agreements with the customer during the course of the project.
  • Manage and coordinate dialogues with internal parties involved in the projects, such as network analysis, project planning, project management, etc.
  • Act proactively in customer dialogues to understand customer needs. You will be the customer's extended arm into our organization, while also being an ambassador for Vattenfall Eldistribución externally
  • Participate in development projects and initiatives to strengthen our ability in certain areas.

Workload varies over time and places great demands on flexibility and collaboration both within the group and with other parts of Vattenfall Eldistribución. It is of great importance that you have the ability to see the big picture and can handle changes.

Requirements specification

We are looking for you as:

  • Has a university education in a relevant field, preferably in electrical power, energy technology or similar.
  • Speaks and writes Swedish and English without hindrance
  • Possess a communicative ability and feel comfortable speaking and presenting in both internal and external contexts
  • Having a driver's license is a requirement as travel may occur in the position


  • Has experience of having worked with infrastructure, preferably within electricity grids
  • Has basic experience in contract writing and contract law

As a person, you are solution-oriented and would rather come up with a proposal for a solution than present a problem. You are curious, take initiative and find it exciting to work in an organization in change. To thrive in the role, you also need to have good communication skills, both verbally and in writing, and be able to switch between working both independently and in a group. The role makes great demands that you have good cooperation skills and are good at building and maintaining relationships with both internal and external parties. Finally, you are structured with the ability to prioritize and plan your tasks effectively.
