Project Manager

London, W1S 4LD


Overview

Here at AMP, we are committed to supporting the energy transition by funding, developing, and delivering flexible energy solutions and helping businesses decarbonise.  

Our mission is to create a smarter energy future. We are relentless in our focus on tackling the central challenge of our age – the energy transition.

The size and scale of the challenge means we must continually grow our team, bring in new ideas and new approaches and be ready to push the boundaries. At every level, we are looking for bold, ambitious, bright, and collaborative people that share our commitment to making a difference. 

About the Opportunity

Battery Box is AMP’s innovative Energy Storage solution, bringing energy storage into cities, towns, and villages across the country. In doing so Battery Box is supporting the fight against climate change, but also supporting the local electricity networks to cope with the growing demand from Electric Vehicles, Heat Pumps and growing demand for electricity.

Occupying an area equivalent to just 2 car parking spaces, each Battery Box connects directly to the local low voltage electricity network, storing excess renewable energy when it is windy or sunny. When demand peaks and the network is stretched, the stored energy is released back to the local network. This cycle not only reduces the carbon intensity of our electricity but also strengthens local network resilience and reduces reliance on imported fossil fuels.

We now have an exciting opportunity for an experienced Project Manager to join our Project Delivery team to manage the implementation of a rollout programme for the large-scale installation of hundreds of grid connected 200kW battery systems (‘Battery Box’) throughout the UK.  Reporting to the Deployment Programme Manager, the Project Manager will manage all aspects of the Battery Box delivery in collaboration with the Project Delivery team, ensuring sufficient resource is available and effectively deployed – and being responsible for ensuring each installation project is delivered on time, to budget and to the highest quality.
