Functie omschrijving

We’re pleased to present the opportunity to join Urenco as a Global Strategy Manager based at our Almelo or Gronau sites. This is an opportunity to provide analytical power, external perspectives, and a structured approach to address critical strategic questions and opportunities across all parts of the organisation. In this role, you’ll work in an international strategy team with business leaders from across the globe (i.e, CEO, Executive Committee, and other senior leaders) to support special initiatives that will help shape the future of the company, including projects that could drive step-changes in the energy transition globally. You’ll learn to navigate a unique geopolitical environment while communicating across cultures and developing powerful expertise in safe, sustainable nuclear technology and the approaches that will enable Net Zero. 

Urenco is a trusted, long-term supplier to the nuclear industry, specialising in safe, cost effective and reliable uranium enrichment services. Our industry is experiencing a major strategic pivot, and we are preparing for a period of growth and expansion. This has created a number of important strategic questions for Urenco, and is creating a new opportunity to join our team.

For us, a happy and engaged workforce is vital to our sustainability. Our aim is to recruit, retain, and develop talented people who can help us deliver on Urenco’s overall strategy, ultimately supporting a global transition to safe, secure, sustainable energy sources.

Join us on our journey, front and centre, to a net zero future.

Key responsibilities include:

Group Strategy Projects:

  • Design and lead a range of discrete strategy projects related to current and potential future business lines, including projects that will expand access to sustainable, affordable, safe energy globally and accelerate the Net Zero transition
  • Lead and design projects including building objectives, scope and work plans
  • Carry out detailed research and prepare clear, concise material to support senior executives and Board-level decision-making
  • Lead complex project execution, while managing both internal and external stakeholders, coordinating resources, and aligning executives
  • Perform analysis and shape decision-making across a range of issues which may include M&A due diligence, cost analysis, revenue growth, competitive landscape, macro-economic factors etc.

Partnership with Operational Sites and Functional Leaders:

  • Support the four operational locations (UK, NL, DE, US) and functional leaders by shaping strategic processes and advising on strategy implementation.
  • Act as Strategic Adviser to MDs and other leaders, helping them to develop and deploy effective strategic plans
  • Design and lead workshops or other sessions to help sites execute on Urenco’s strategy
  • Confidently communicate in a range of settings, adapting methods and style to different audiences
  • Develop long-term relationships and represent the strategy team across the business

Strategic Planning Support:

  • Provide support for and/or lead on the creation and tracking of strategic initiatives to support the annual and long term planning process
  • Partner with business owners to create appropriate metrics and targets for initiatives, with clear line of sight to the overall strategic plan
  • Support Finance team to ensure that strategic initiatives are appropriately represented in the financial plan
  • Constructively challenge key stakeholders to collaborate in producing the highest quality analysis and plans


Behavioural competencies: 

Ownership mindset: You are detail-oriented, proactive and thorough, and you can juggle many priorities simultaneously. You make decisions and take accountability for them, even when you lack all of the ideal information needed. You are willing to roll up your sleeves and get things done – while always keeping the big picture in mind.

Team player: You love working in diverse and multi-functional teams. You excel at coaching and training others, and you help teams perform at their best.  A savvy and tactful communicator, you have experience managing complex relationships and intuitively find the right tone when working with people from a range of backgrounds.

Analytical, structured thinker: You’re at home in a spreadsheet, and enjoy taking messy data and pulling out the key insights. You’re able to build a detailed complex analysis from scratch, and then distil it down to the three big things a busy executive needs to know.

Growth-orientation: You strive to make sure you and your teams excel at whatever you do, and you view set-backs and challenges as motivation to try harder. You want to continuously learn and experiment, and you welcome new challenges and ambitious targets to chase.

Passionate: You are excited about the sustainability transition and energy industry, and you’re committed to supporting the growth of clean, secure, safe, affordable energy around the world. You see nuclear power as a vital component of that overall transition.

Experience required:

  • Project management and execution (essential)
  • Executive-level, strategic communication (essential)
  • Interpersonal and cross-cultural team-working and collaboration  skills (essential)
  • STEM related industry experience (desirable)

  • Master’s degree or equivalent preferably in Business Administration or something similar (desirable)
  • Strong analytical skills (essential)
  • Fluent spoken and written English (essential); additional language skills (desirable)

  • Analytical, data-oriented problem-solving (essential)
  • Advanced proficiency in MS Office (especially PowerPoint, Word and  Excel)
