Join us in building Norway's first battery cell factory

Freyr AS
Project Controls Analyst

The Analyst will provide Project Control support for all stages of FREYR project development.


The primary responsibility is to work closely with project managers to ensure that all project control processes run smoothly to support successful project execution in Freyr. This includes monitoring project progress and costs to ensure that it is within the confines of deadlines and budget limitations. More importantly, the role must be able to identify and manage risk, analyze variances, causes, and propose solutions and mitigations to finally arrive at updated forecast for project delivery.

However, since Freyr is a new company, growing at great speed, you must be prepared to assume responsibilities and perform tasks way beyond a typical project control mandate. The project control department provides our analytical and strategic skills to serve all parts of Freyr in our efforts to produce the most cost effective and environmentally friendly batteries in the world. This is a high paced and dynamic environment, requiring a motivated and flexible attitude. You will be expected to work without set frames and guidelines, and we hope to see that attitude expressed in your application.

  • to Head of Project Control


We offer the right candidate an important role in developing Norway's first battery cell production facilities.

Energy storage is an important key to the world's switch to a sustainable, green economy. Freyr is a frontrunner in Europe's rush to build capacity in battery production. A shift from fossil fuel to electricity-from-renewables could deliver 75 - 90% of the CO2 emission reductions required.

Freyr has to move fast. The world needs both battery cells now, and ever better battery cells in the future. With us you will learn a lot and a lot will be expected of you. We aim to pick high performers that will slot in immediately.
