Head Of Operational Excellence - E.ON

At E.ON we are all different, but we have one thing in common: we are passionate about our vison – to be the frontrunner in the energy transition of society, in order to create a sustainable energy system driven by electrification and digitalisation. To succeed with our ambition, we need people who want to make a difference, and are able to create a business with outstanding operational excellence. 

In order to adapt to future challenges and fast moving market needs, a new team within E.ON Customer Solutions has been formed – our Operational Excellence team. The team has a clear assignment and that is to drive the transformation of our business within energy sales, energy infrastructure solutions, customer support, and our support functions.

We are now looking for a strong leader for the team in the role as

You will be a part of the management team of Business development & Technology, a unit with responsibility for Strategy & Innovation, Business IT & digital, and Operational Excellence. You will work closely with the business owners in our operational businesses, and you will actively support the executive leadership team in driving performance management, process optimization, customer centricity, competence build-up, and business transformation. You will also be the Nordic representative in the group wide operational excellence network, as EBS is being rolled out within all market units within E.ON Customer Solutions. 

Your responsibilities will be; 

  • E.ON Business System – develop and maintain a best in class operational excellence system based on lean management philosophy

  • Business transformation – lead and drive implementation of our Adapt for Growth program, in order to reduce organizational complexity, improve steering and governance, and reduce costs

The role is placed at E.ON Headquarter in Malmö, and you will report to Christian Roos, Director of Business development & Technology.
