    We’re looking for a unicorn. The kind that sparkles when compliance, risk mitigation, and regulations within the solar PV, BESS, and C&I spheres of renewable energy are mentioned.

    Our client is pretty special. Leaders in the global gridworks industry, they are looking for an equally unique Regulatory Manager to join their team. Have you heard of the three P’s? Persistence, patience, and performance. You’ll need to have evidence of these plastered across your LinkedIn profile for us to consider you.

    Let’s talk about the job.

    Your role would ultimately be to streamline permitting processes and facilitate commercial and industrial (C&I) scale projects for grid integration. Talking is a big part of this role. You’ll need to negotiate and take charge when liaising with municipalities and utility providers to ensure that our client is always up to code. Managing multiple projects simultaneously, you'll maintain a steady line of communication with stakeholders and internal teams, collaborating closely with our Quality Assurance/Quality Control team to ensure project integrity and compliance.

    What’s in it for you?

    Our client offers a collaborative and inclusive work environment where opportunities for professional growth and development are abundant. Their competitive salary and bonus structure, with opportunities for annual bonuses and departmental growth incentives, reflect their commitment to their team members. Flexible working arrangements, including options for hybrid or office-based work, ensure a balanced approach to your career and personal life.

    Are you the mythical regulatory manager that we’ve only hear about in whispers? Apply now!
