Join a fast-growing, listed company with a purpose! Fastned owns and operates a network of over 280 large fast charging stations across Europe, allowing electric vehicle drivers to charge their car with 100% green energy in just 15 minutes.

Fastned currently operates in seven countries (offices in Germany, the Netherlands, France, the UK, Switzerland, Belgium and Denmark) and we are pioneers in a progressive industry.
As Funding & Investor Relations Analyst your prime responsibility will be to support us in raising institutional funding necessary for Fastned to fund its ambitious growth. You do this, hand-in-hand with the Head of F&IR and the CFO, by considering what the best institutional funding options are for Fastned, and take a supporting role in realising them. Over the last few years, Fastned realised a 150 million euro accelerated bookbuild, a 50 million euro partnership with French government bank CDC and a 75 million euro equity private placement with Schroders’ infrastructure fund. We expect you to support these types of transactions and consider new options.
A key responsibility will be to analyse data and prepare presentation material for discussions with institutional investors and coverage analysts, with the ultimate goal of explaining the attractiveness of the Fastned business case. Fast charging networks are a new business model in a rapidly growing market. A key challenge is to explain this new business model, in a new market, conducted by a young company.
