First off, the company which is looking for your specific skills is a major renewable energy player with projects across the globe – in addition, they have a strong financial backing behind them. Although this position is a project based one (18 – 24 months) – they don’t let exceptional skills pass them by – so if you knock their socks off, you have a high chance that you will become a full time employee, either heading up new hydro projects or assisting in their current portfolio.

We are looking for someone who has proven experience mitigating risks (financial, technical and pertaining to HSE), ensures the highest level of quality is delivered by all contractors and employees, is able to effectively optimize plant performance, conduct in-depth plant analysis through the data. It goes without saying that reporting skills is pivotal as you engage with the senior management team – who don’t settle for mediocre.
