If you want to work for a company that uses their acute investment expertise and insight to ensure funds are put to bankable and ethically sound projects, then this is the perfect opportunity for you!
The firm is looking for exceptional talent and will not deviate from this cultural mantra… which is why the firm has been as successful as it has over the years. If you have your honours in Engineering or Finance, have 7-9 years’ experience in the emerging market renewable energy space with a proven portfolio of projects/transactions under your belt (from due diligence through to post-investment monitoring) then you are exactly the person we want to talk to. You will be commercially savvy with sound business judgement like none other, your ability to interpret data, see the big picture while understanding the nuances of the interrelated intricacies is something that you have always been praised for. You will have a knack for building strong relationships quickly, people trust your advice, feedback and insights. You will see to it that due diligence and transactions are effectively executed and closed. You will actively sit on the board of seats (post-investment monitoring), using your years’ of experience to advise and guide project companies, ensuring success. You will see to it that the correct ESG requirements are met per project. In a nutshell, you will be responsible for financial modelling and analysis, investment proposals as well as due diligence, and related negotiations.
This opportunity could see you working in Cape Town alongside an exceptionally strong team, making a tangible impact on people and the planet. If this is something that drives you, then you could be earning a great salary while actively working in an industry that you are passionate about.
