ACCIONA has created this internal group, currently formed of 40 experts in different specialist infrastructure areas, to boost our competitive position based on knowledge, and to reflect our commitment to recognising and supporting professionals with differentiating technical skills. This initiative seeks to strengthen the company’s position as a leader in technical excellence, innovation and sustainability.
Since its founding more than 100 years ago, ACCIONA has been committed to innovation and sustainability as absolute priorities for its business, which today has made it a leading international company in the infrastructure and renewable energy sectors.
This reputation is the result of work seeking constant improvement, carried out by a team of highly-qualified professionals that every day strive to ensure that the company continues to grow and is increasingly competitive in the market.
ACCIONA has created the internal Technical Leaders group in order to recognise the high level of technical knowledge of some of its professionals and their strategic value to the company, in a commitment aimed at achieving sustainable and solid growth in an extremely dynamic market, helping to maintain its position as a leader in technical excellence, innovation and sustainability.
A Technical Leader is a professional with exceptional technical knowledge in a key aspect of the business, capable of transforming this knowledge into high-value technical capabilities.
ACCIONA currently has 40 Technical Leaders across its different infrastructure areas, although this strategic group will be progressively enlarged in line with the needs of the business.
How to identify a Technical Leader?
A Technical Leader must combine a series of attitudes and skills that make him or her a candidate for this group. It is important that these professionals, who must have a global profile, have a high level of knowledge both inside and outside of ACCIONA. Furthermore, it is essential that they maintain a collaborative attitude, contributing to the transmission, development and growth of his or her specialist areas of knowledge.
Lecturing in universities or business schools; participation in external forums; and authoring articles for the specialist media are just some of the other qualities that are highly valued when selecting ACCIONA’s Technical Leaders.
Once appointed, and provided that these professionals accept this position, Technical Leaders will lead the management of their specialist knowledge areas within the business, in a prestigious role that entails serious commitment.
What is expected from a Technical Leader?
Technical Leaders are expected to demonstrate a desire to solve technical problems from a cross-functional project perspective, as well as guiding R&D+i programs, always promoting a commitment to technological leadership, among other actions.
Furthermore, thanks to this recognition, Technical Leaders become representatives for ACCIONA at the different external events and forums that the company takes part in, adding value to drive business development.
ACCIONA’s commitment to this group
To create the best environment for this group, the company is committed to investing in continuously improving their professional talent, enabling them to maintain their position as Technical Leaders over time.
It therefore provides access to specialist external training within the annual budget approved for this group, as well as access to internal training based on the acquisition of skills, and a restricted online space with specific knowledge content, collaboration and training environments.
ACCIONA also provides them with all of the necessary resources to perform the activities expected of a Technical Leader, from technological devices through to the possibility of organising internal events and having working teams.
For ACCIONA, technical excellence, business specialisation and the capacity to propose innovative solutions by encouraging collaboration and knowledge are the key qualities that make the difference in a highly competitive global market.
The company has therefore decided to recognise these professionals that have expert and differentiating knowledge, and who contribute to consolidating ACCIONA’s position every day as a developer of prominent infrastructures around the world.
“Technical expertise is fundamental to be competitive; the rest (profits, sales…) will follow”.
