Advisor – Sustainable Business Development

Svåheia Eiendom AS (SEAS) has experienced significant growth over the recent months, and we see a need to expand our advisory team. We are involved in several different energy and waste related projects, and we are actively working on regulatory processes to prepare our industrial park for our ongoing and future activities. The biggest growth driver is the Horizon Europe project CARBIOW (Carbon Negative Biofuels from Organic Waste), where we have recently been entrusted with greater responsibility and additional tasks. As a result of this development, we are seeking to employ an advisor in the field of Sustainable Business Development.

As an advisor in the field of Sustainable Business Development you will assist us with the many commercial aspects associated with the activities at Svaaheia. We are continuously working to further develop the industrial park and in doing so we collaborate with actors across regions and borders, and over the recent year we have made many crucial connections in Europe. Your work will be tightly associated with the network that we are building and therefore we want you to be just as comfortable establishing new professional relationships as you are with conducting market analysis and developing strategies. We have quite ambitious plans for Svaaheia, and your mandate will be to build a bridge between our solutions and the respective markets. In this position you will be involved in the entire length of the value generation chain, from networking and procurement to the design of commercial strategies and sales. Your contribution to the CARBIOW project will include mapping of available organic waste in southern Norway, establish agreements for the use of organic waste, and investigate how this project can lead to additional value creation and new jobs at Svaaheia. We also have ambitions to enter the CO2 market and want you to assist in the development of a CCUS roadmap with a primary focus on the southern regions of Norway.

Who are we looking for?

At SEAS we know that qualifications are relative, and that academic competence can be just as valuable as acquired experience, which is why we encourage anyone who views themselves as qualified to apply. A significant portion of our activities falls within the purview of industrial research, and we utilize academic approaches in most of our projects. As such, it is desirable that you have a master’s degree in a field relevant to the position. Relevant experience is viewed favourably, and it is of interest if you have previously participated in EU projects, but most important is that you possess and can contribute with relevant expertise in our team.

Our activities are diverse and span regional and national borders, with key partners in Norway and around Europe, so it is desirable that you are proficient in both Norwegian and English.

What can we offer?

SEAS is situated in a prime location within an attractive and fast-growing region, surrounded by many exciting developments. Currently, there are six active EU projects in the Egersund area, and we work across sectors and regions to develop a comprehensive network and an active knowledge sphere that you can be a part of. We offer competitive employment conditions, including hybrid pension and negotiable salary, as well as the opportunity to participate in the acclaimed CARBIOW project, which received a perfect score from the EU Commission’s expert committee and includes partners across the European continent.

As an advisor, you will receive detailed training, which is quality-assured by Dr. Edesio Miranda-Barbosa, SEAS’ CTO and an expert evaluator in CCUS for the Norwegian Research Council, European Innovation Fund, and Horizon Europe. Our CEO, Arild Refsland, guarantees a work environment where you will be heard and seen from day one and you will have the opportunity to actively contribute to one of Europe’s most exciting energy projects.
