What makes a great Project Engineer?

Is a Project Engineer’s goal not to drive projects to completion through a hands-on approach?

Does a top-class Project Engineer react swiftly to issues, provide on-site training, directly manage front-line workers, develop innovate solutions and liaise with site managers and company executives to secure any resources that are necessary to push a project forward?

If this sounds incredibly familiar to what you do on a day to day basis, then YOU are exactly the person we are looking for!

If you want to work for a solar EPC company that has a team of world class engineers who have pulled off some of the most remarkable solar PV projects across sub-Saharan Africa, then you cannot miss out on this once off opportunity!

If you are the ideal candidate for this role you will have impressive management and engineering expertise which embodies intelligent solar PV design work and project roll-out success (within time, quality and budget expectations). You will find yourself assisting and running with the projects from the initial feasibility stages through to construction phases. Your goal will be to ensure all preliminary requirements and planning is secured and ready for implementation. You will be liaising with various stakeholders along the value chain, working closely with your design support team members, managing installation teams and advising clients on customized solutions. In addition, you will need to use your superlative commercial acumen to keep abreast of potential opportunities and mitigate technical risks as you assess sites.

If you have a passion for sustainable energy and are fulfilled by being truly proud of the unique projects (which require tremendous technical skills) you have commissioned, then we look forward to receiving your application!
