Elia Group, Berlin


The Elia Group encompasses two major transmission system operators (TSOs) in two European regions: Elia Transmission in Belgium and 50Hertz Transmission in north-east Germany, one of the four German TSOs. Both TSOs operate at the heart of the European electricity system as they provide vital links between the various electricity producers and their 30 million end users. The Group’s high voltage network with its intricately meshed 18,600 km grid transports the electricity generated by the producers to the distribution system operators and major industrial consumers.


The Elia Group Procurement Team is located partly in Brussels and partly at the 50Hertz Headquarters in Berlin. The department plays a key role in the delivery of a qualitative, cost-effective and on-time grid infrastructure for both TSOs. Here, in Berlin, the Elia Group offers the permanent position (entry date: as soon as possible) of Supplier and Contract Manager for substation Electrical Equipment and mainly transformers (TFO) and/or static converters (STATCOM).

You will manage actively the client-supplier relationship. So on the one hand you work with Elia’s strategic electrical equipment suppliers.

  • To lead the negotiations and reach reasonable agreements in case of unforeseen situations or claims (in doing so, you use your solution-oriented problem-solving skills to create win-win situations),
  • To support the internal stakeholders as well as the suppliers, particularly during pilot projects.


In your job, you use both your assertiveness and your empathy in order to manage the cooperation with stakeholders from different countries ranging from internal engineering department to suppliers in the whole world.
