We are looking for an expert with a strong project management and strategic project planning, development, and implementation background, as well as experience in stakeholder engagement within the oil and gas or energy sector with added benefits with expertise on carbon crediting and finance.
We have just announced a partnership with OGCI Climate Investments, an established impact investor, which has invested in ICA-Finance providing the necessary driving force for the rapid scale-up of the company. OGCI-CI manages a $1B+ Catalyst Fund I and was formed by the Oil & Gas Climate Initiative consisting of 12 oil & gas majors – Aramco, bp, Chevron, CNPC, Eni, Equinor, ExxonMobil, Occidental, Petrobras, Repsol, Shell and TotalEnergies – that account for around 30% of global operated production. We are now looking for the right Project Portfolio Manager to assist in the rapid expansion of the company.
ICA-Finance is now in the process of establishing partnerships with international players who have complementary expertise and resources and can thus add to the rapid upscaling of the business.
The Project Portfolio Manager will be responsible for maximising business value and mitigate risk by focusing on the strategic level of carbon credit project execution encompassing managerial responsibilities of project portfolio governance, prioritization, coordination, optimization, portfolio and capacity planning, monitoring, reporting, risk management and project stakeholder communication.
The Project Portfolio Manager will be the principal driving force for managing the process to evaluate, measure and track project benefits, parties, and timelines at the portfolio level. The position entails responsibility for overseeing that the specific project development cycle activities are executed in time by internal and external project participants and stakeholders. The role encompasses liaising with key partners in project host countries, which include but are not limited to national and private oil, gas and other resource production and exploration companies, technology and service providers, customers, traders, high-ranking government and regulatory officials, and partners for the purchase of carbon credits.
ICA-Finance is operating worldwide, predominantly in the emerging and developing economies. Hence, the work duties imply travel for project coordination, management and oversight, business negotiations and deal acquisition. The position involves work with high-ranking officials and executives in countries which usually would not be regarded as tourist destinations. ICA-Finance will ensure adequate safety and protection during all business operations.
The Project Portfolio Manager will receive active support from the company's owners and partners who have broad international experience in business development within the energy and climate fields. This is an exceptional opportunity for the right expert to get a first-hand involvement in decarbonization of the sector and engage with key sector players by utilizing their existing expertise in project portfolio management, governance, and optimization.
Please note that the position is based in Oslo, Norway; hence, international applicants need to hold the right to work in the country or be able and willing to relocate and obtain the relevant working visa or permit.
Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis.
