- technical advisor on the World Bank Group's Scaling Solar Initiative, Africa
- lender's technical advisor on the San Pedro III solar plant, Chile

….and many more!

Please come and be a part of our growth! Get involved in making the largest and some of the most complex and challenging solar projects become a reality from their conception through to completion.

Our work is varied and includes due diligence studies (technical, contractual and financial) construction and operation monitoring, contractual reviews, energy yield analysis, irradiation studies, feasibility studies, market and strategic advice, project development assistance, regulatory development, analysis and review and technology assessments.

Job Description

Our global teams are involved in these projects all over the world (mainly in the megawatt (MW) scale). The work we're involved with is varied and we can promise you'll never get bored! Bogota is a recent addition to our locations and we are looking to grow our capability quickly.

You'll get to experience projects from conception to completion and will provide engineering inputs from initial assessment through to technical and economic feasibility, due diligence, construction monitoring and acceptance.

You’ll also be reviewing and preparing technical and non-technical reports including specifications, proposals, calculations and contracts. There will also be technical tender support, actively assisting with business development and client management.

We work as an integrated, global network so you will get the chance to work alongside other professionals as part of a multidisciplinary project team giving you an understanding of projects from different technology perspectives. This means we look for engineers with genuine curiosity and a deep understanding of solar projects.

Candidate Specification

As a company our role is to open opportunities for clients and we do this through a connected global network of solar experts working across Thailand, Japan, the UAE, South Africa, North and South America and the UK. We look to utilise the most relevant experts for the challenge of the project no matter where they are based in the world.

With us you will develop and learn new areas of work and we ask you share your knowledge, particularly as a senior solar consultant, with others.

It's essential to have these three main criteria to apply for this role, we're sorry but we won't be able to consider your application without these:

- a degree in an engineering discipline
- experience of working in at least one of our areas of work as laid out above
- experience working on megawatt scale solar plants (PV)

Travel is part of the role for project and client visits.

Now to the location. We are a team of more than 80 people situated in the centre of Cape Town. Most staff walk or cycle to the office however the train station is only 100 metres away and two of the main bus stations are only a few minutes’ walk. Our sports and social club makes the most of this incredible location and organises regular events including beach volley-ball and dragon-boat racing while staff also enjoy hiking, rock-climbing, kitesurfing and football. There is always an opportunity to socialise outside of work – not to mention the mandatory braais which happen on a regular basis!

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate, and take positive steps to create an inclusive culture.
