Our client, whose footprint is growing throughout Africa as well as globally, is looking for an ambitious Section Manager to join their team. If you are forward-thinking with a water treatment background, you could be the person for the job!
The person our client is looking for will have a degree in Electrical or Chemical Engineering along with 6+ years Section Management experience. You will also need to have previous experience in the renewable energy industry as well as in an electrical environment. A typical day for you as a Section Manager would include managing the operators to ensure their deadlines are met, making certain preventative maintenance is carried out when necessary, and liaising with clients to make sure their expectations are met – this will require you to have great communication and interpersonal skills!
