Contract Analyst – Interconnectors
About the Role
Contract Analyst – Interconnectors, Solihull/Warwick (with hybrid working)
National Grid Interconnectors is at the heart of UK’s transition to our net zero energy future. We operate a number of HVDC interconnectors that connect the UK’s energy system to some of our closest neighbours, allowing energy to be imported to and exported from the UK. As well as already owning a portfolio of HVDC Interconnectors, we’re working on developing new projects in order to ensure that we are able to meet the UK’s future demands for greener energy solutions.

You do not need to be an expert in Contract Management for this role. We are a new team with lots of opportunity to grow your contract management skills whilst being fully supported by experienced contract managers to work with key stakeholders and suppliers to deliver our business objectives.
We’d hope to see you in either one of our office or site locations at least one day per week and you’re welcome to be in the office more often if that would work best for you. We’re happy to discuss any additional flexibility in working patterns or requirements that you feel could help to make this job work for you!
What you’ll be getting up to
- Supporting the production of management information reports for weekly, monthly, and quarterly forums
- Day-to-day support of the operations team on site and interaction with Contractors including reviewing suppliers’ applications for payment and raising purchase orders.
- Tracking suppliers spend, preparation of payment certificates and cost reporting
- Administration of contract communications within a contract management system and internal risk register
- Ensuring that contract management team’s programme is kept up to date
- Develop knowledge of contracts and take ownership of own portfolio
- You will have a working knowledge of Microsoft Office applications.
- You will have the ability to prepare reports and collate information as well as presenting this in a concise manner for a range of stakeholders.
- A working knowledge or appreciation of Coupa and/or invoicing and payment systems would be beneficial for the role.
