The ideal candidate will have an engineering degree as well as an MBA or BCom degree. AltGen are looking for someone who is knowledgeable when it comes to Southern and Eastern Africa’s solar markets. Over the years, your experience in the solar industry has provided you with robust knowledge about centralised and decentralised PV solutions.
