Their client owns and operates large scale renewable energy projects and have successfully taken part in the REIPPPP program in South Africa. They are looking for someone like you to join their team to oversee their O&M division!

As the Technical O&M Manager, you will need to develop and implement management systems, report to stakeholders, manage O&M contracts, and oversee onsite personnel. To be the ideal candidate, you will have an Electrical Engineering Degree, and if you are registered as a Professional Engineer with ECSA this will help make your application stand out from the rest! Your qualifications need to be accompanied by at least 6 years of technical experience in an infrastructure O&M environment within South Africa with a track record of leading, supervising and training high-performance operational and diverse teams. It is also important that you have a good understanding of PV system designs, operations, and key commercial and business drivers.

Additionally, it is important that you have excellent attention to detail to ensure no errors – big or small – go unnoticed! If you think you have what it takes to ‘wow’ their client, apply now and tell us why!
