    Are you a motivated Strategic Development Engineer with a passion for the green energy market? This is a fruitful opportunity to build your professional career in the renewable energy sector with an international company that has an impressive portfolio of over 1GW of installed energy capacity! If you have a background in renewable energy development and the desire to use your expert abilities to build an investable portfolio of projects then you need to apply now!

    The ideal candidate needs to have a degree in engineering and preferably experience in the development of renewable energy projects. You have to have a meticulous and output-driven work approach, a sound understanding of project development and optimization processes, and competency in relative software. You must have a clear understanding of the wind and solar process to take the lead on a project which is in the transition period/already being sold to the client. You will be engaging with various stakeholders such as project managers and investors, so excellent communication skills are essential! Any prior grid experience with a commercial and technical collaboration with ESKOM regarding national grid connection is highly beneficial.

    Your key responsibilities will include managing the solar and wind resource profiles in order to develop and build a portfolio of projects (including following the metmast fleet and EYA), identifying and securing various deals and opportunities, completing amendments on projects to optimize capacity, continuously updating relevant stakeholders on project development progress, and overseeing the final development of the projects once the project managers obtain authorization. You will be involved in the final sign-off on how to accommodate the grid constraint, the wind regime, the wake effect and/or the last modification on the projects regarding any requests from the client. You will engage, follow and (where necessary) challenge all commercial and technical discussions with ESKOM regarding how to connect the projects to the grid, amend lease agreements, update applications of the CAA, change the layout of the project, etc. You will be dedicated to these later-stage aspects of the project

    If you are ready to take the next step in your career journey then apply now with your stellar track record! Find out more here about why working with our consultants is the best step for your next career move. Please note, this is a later-stage project developer
