Is this you?

You are a passionate Electrical Construction Supervisor who thrives on playing a focused role in ensuring the successful execution of a solar farm project.

In this role, you will have a wide range of responsibilities such as:

  • Provide active support to the HSE Manager, ensuring the enforcement of the HSE Plan on site.
  • Review and verify DSTIs, act as OHS, and guide contractors to comply with the project’s EMPrs.

Adherence to the Project Schedule and milestone dates and collecting daily diaries to monitor progress will be required of you.
  • QA/QC support will involve ensuring correct design implementation, supporting the EPC Engineer with on-site engineering designs, attending witness and hold points, and site acceptance tests. You will also assist in document review processes and technical acceptance procedures.
  • Help support the Project Scheduler and Commercial team with progress measurements and document reviews, interact with stakeholders, effectively communicate company values and objectives on-site, fulfil reporting obligations, and manage interactions with various parties involved in the project. All of this will be reported directly to the Site Construction Manager daily or weekly.


Where you’ll be doing it

Our client is heading a solar plant in the Northern Cape with a capacity of 115MWp PV plant & three 30MW battery storage systems which will be controlled by a virtual power plant controller. As a leader in renewable energy and IPP, they are pulling together a team of invaluable people to head this engineering project. You will be joining the site for an 18-20 month fixed-term contract.

You need to hold a BTech or BSc (Diploma minimum) in Electrical Engineering and be comfortable with your exposure to those fields over the years. Along with that, our client would like to see a thorough understanding of regulations, multiple project execution, and overall proactivity and intercultural competence.

What you’ll get

Apart from an open door into the most sought-after energy space of the decade, you will be walking away with a comfortable salary at the end of each month along with your usual site benefits. You can opt-in for the benefits structure around medical aid and pension or else take the cash structure of the package only. R&R weekend is once a month from Thursday to Tuesday. Travel to and from the site will be in your vehicle at own cost.
