About Our Client

Exciting opportunity for a Director Renewables Debt Advisory, Europe with a leading European Corporate & Investment Bank, London

Department Overview:

The position is within the London-based team of the Global Energy Project Advisory ("EPA") business of the Bank.

EPA is the energy sector's in-house debt advisory product. EPA has become increasingly prominent in the market, expanding into renewables and new energy technologies. EPA's primary focus nowadays is on the Bank's network and with core clients. The global team comprises of professionals based in Europe, London, Singapore and New York.

EPA has been responsible within the Bank for project finance advisory services since its inception on a global basis.

In line with the energy transition, EPA is increasingly focusing on the renewable energy sector and new energy transition technologies.
