Transaction Support Associate

Join Field Energy as they are looking for a Transaction Support Associate

A bit about Field:

To reach Net Zero, we need to solve big challenges - like how to store energy, solve grid intermittency, and heat our homes without fossil fuels. And, if we’re going to prevent climate catastrophe, we need to do this now. Field will fund, build and run the renewable infrastructure we need to tackle these challenges.

We’re starting with energy storage, with a portfolio of batteries in the UK. Storage is critical to the future success of renewable energy in the UK and beyond. It allows us to store renewable energy for when it's needed, creating a more reliable, flexible and green grid.

We need to massively accelerate the deployment of storage assets. At Field, we will show that batteries are a totally viable part of our energy infrastructure - now, not in some distant future. And, we have ambitious plans to become the defining new clean energy player in Europe over the next few years, gradually expanding beyond batteries into new asset types.
