Our client, an international renewable energy project developer with a large footprint across Africa is looking for a top-notch Finance Director to lead their activities across Eastern Africa, although, you will be stationed at their offices in Cape Town. This means, you need 4+ years’ experience with a top tier accounting firm that has operated across the same jurisdictions. In the perfect world, you will have sound experience in the energy infrastructure sector.

You will be a CA with a relevant degree under your belt. Your experience will be key, as you will need to hit the ground running and be able to start adding value from the start date. This experience can be summed up as follows. Proven ability to develop corporate structuring strategies, managing auditors and financial advisors, advise on corporate transactions and international compliance demands as well as ensuring regulatory and legal requirements are met – such as; taxes and handling all accounts related to the company’s entities and the various international subsidiaries. You will need to be someone who has reported on the company’s financial standing annually and must be well versed with financial planning, monitoring and reporting (including statutory) – considering you will act as the lead and advisor on the firm’s operational performance. You will know all about financial risks, the necessary accounting policies and best practices like the back of your hand. Being the Finance Director, you will lead by example, which means that the right processes and system usage must be ingrained into your teams’ culture. Capital and cash flow management is second nature to you, something you can do with your eyes closed. We are looking for someone who has success guiding a team when it comes to sourcing and contracting grant funding and concessional finance. Tell us about yours!

In summary, this is not a boxed position, you will extend your responsibilities into capital management, WHS, HR and raising project finance. Since you will be raising project finance in the infrastructure space, it is important that you are willing to dive into matters pertaining to contracts, licenses, legal, insurance, imports, and exports as well as the negotiations around these.

Why would you want to take on this opportunity? Well, you will be working with a focused team who have proven project experience – internationally. You will be the righthand (wo)man for the MD, which means that if you enjoy responsibility and leading a team – this is it!

Willingness to travel across Africa - a non-negotiable!
