    Imagine contributing to the financing of important renewable energy projects in Europe, with very professional international companies in an experienced team with a leading position in the European Renewable Energy market. As an associate (Director) and a member of Rabobank’s Project Finance team you can make a difference by delivering transactions that drive the energy transition, developing innovative financing solutions and exploring new technologies and markets.

    Making a difference

    • Be responsible for the due diligence, structuring and execution of (complex) Project Finance transactions throughout Europe in cooperation with your deal team.
    • You will have regular client contact and regular travelling in the Netherlands and Europe will be required.
    • Cooperate with the other Project Finance team members and other departments within Rabobank. Furthermore you are responsible for the preparation of inter alia presentations to pitch for new transactions, credit applications, reviews, waivers and transaction documentation including associated Rabobank corporate hygiene.
    • Take a pro-active approach towards project and market developments and contribute to the search for new clients and opportunities.
    • Actively contribute to internal projects related to optimising the organisation and development of the department.

    With each other

    Collaboration is at the heart of everything we do. Our Project Finance team brings talented people together to provide limited and non-recourse financings as well as debt advisory to the renewable energy sector. We are a team of 15 experienced individuals and part of the Global Project Finance team, consisting of approx. 60 people. We often have leading roles in transactions in on- and offshore wind, solar and more innovative sectors (e.g. batteries, sustainable heating systems and geothermal) and are active in different countries such as the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Spain, the Nordics, England, Ireland, Spain, France and Italy. Transaction size ranges from EUR 35mln to a few billion EUR investments and are characterised by a high degree of complexity enabling you to use your creativity and analytical skills.

    Ruurd Immel: “I have provided project finance debt to several renewable energy projects across Western Europe. This is very satisfying, because you are contributing to the transition from polluting fossil to clean energy generation. The Project Finance team exists of a good mix of people, with a strong drive to work with and for our clients. This results in a very good team spirit in which you can really develop your analytical and commercial skills.”

    Sanne van Bemmel: “The great thing about working in the Project Finance – Renewables team, is that you can directly see the assets that you finance and their contribution to a more sustainable world, that you are never bored because the work is intellectually challenging in an economical, technical and legal way and last but not least – you will always be working in a team with a great team spirit.”
