Join our client and become a part of a who are passionate about making an impact as well as feeding power into the grid.

    Our client is looking for someone who can think on their feet, takes initiative and enjoys a collaborative environment-friendly to fit into their dynamic team.

Experience managing a variety of accounts in the renewable energy sector is crucial to successfully operating in this role.

    If all of that hasn’t convinced you then let’s move onto selling point number two. Picture your future..... The natural light in your office is changing slowly as the day goes on. The garden, which could be straight out of a Jane Austen novel, is green, pink, and purple with hydrangeas and trees that have been on the estate for decades. You feel calm, confident – your work environment mirrors tranquility.

    So, what do you have to do to make this picture a reality?

    In this role, you will be tasked with overseeing and optimising the execution of essential financial functions for multiple groups. These functions can include crafting various reviews related to management accounting and tax computation, FP&A, budget management, financial reporting, cash flow management, (down the line) team leadership and development, strategic planning, and compliance and auditing. You would also be required to generate NERSA reports. Simply put, you need to be on your game at all times and comfortable with hitting moving targets.  

    If you have read this far and still reckon you tick all the boxes, then we can get back to the perks. This role offers you an opportunity for considerable growth and development as you will be mentored by the sharpest of tacks. You will be working under the direct guidance of the client's Financial Director who has quickly worked their way up the chain of command for a meaningful cause. And if all of that isn’t enough, while you look after our client’s financials, our client will look after you. With an on-site chef and flexible working hours, you’ll feel like part of the family.
