    Are you a motivated Senior Project Developer with a passion for the green energy market and who wants to tackle solutions for tough and unique solar and wind projects!? This is your chance to join an ambitious group with over 4000MW of green energy generation developments across South Africa, Europe and the Americas! This is a role that offers MASSIVE growth potential in terms of your skills and abilities, it provides you with a chance to get involved in various aspects of the project development life-cycle, giving you a holistic and diverse skillset where you get to take the lead.

    You will find yourself working closely with other departments within the team to ensure that projects are developed successfully for potential sale to investors, as well as tendering into the REIPPPP, and/or for private power purchase agreement (PPA) opportunities. You need to have a degree in engineering with at least 5 years of experience as a utility-scale wind and solar PV developer.

    The ideal candidate needs to have strong reporting and project management skills, knowledge of a political environment, EIA's, and experience in stakeholder management, and renewable energy project development lifecycles. Excellent networking and communication skills are a must as you will play a key role in selecting the consultancies (for the full scope of EIA's and technical design and grid studies) which will support you to effectively deliver on project development activities. Dealing with the regulatory bodies to ensure permitting and consent activities are conducted timeously and that they run smoothly is your modus operandi, DAFF, DFFE, and CAA are not new terms to you. You will play the lead in managing your portfolio of projects, and consistently identify, evaluate and select new wind and solar PV opportunities which will drive growth for the firm.

They employ people who want to learn and who are not afraid to take the bull by the horns and run with a project, people who enjoy saying that they played a pivotal role in the success of the early-stage projects which THEY have developed.
