SNV is a not-for-profit international development organisation. Founded in the Netherlands more than 50 years ago, we have built a long-term, local presence in over 30 of the poorest countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America. Our global team of local and international advisors work with local partners to equip communities, businesses and organisations with the tools, knowledge and connections they need to increase their incomes and gain access to basic services – empowering them to break the cycle of poverty and guide their own development.
SNV is currently tendering for the Africa Clean Energy Business (ACE) programme, component 1: TA and Knowledge Management. Our consortium brings almost 30 years of experience in delivering results in the off-grid energy market, benefitting the urban and rural poor (with a focus on women and girls) in Sub-Saharan Africa. Our ability to deliver in an effective, value-for-money manner is underpinned by our continuous in-country presence and infrastructure in over 20 African countries.
We are looking for a Team Leader to lead the implementation of the ACE programme, respectively in Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Nigeria, Rwanda, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe. The programme supports the implementation of policies, regulatory and other actions developed by the Energy Africa Compacts. These aim to improve the enabling environment for a market-based approach to private sector delivery of solar home system (SHS) products and services, and to ensure that the potential of off-grid solar energy to increase electricity access is recognised. We will support governments in putting in place appropriate policies and regulations, as well as to focus on other aspects of the broader enabling environment. The proposed new programme will tackle market barriers, catalysing private sector delivery and facilitating a market-driven approach to increased access to off-grid renewable energy.
SNV offers an international contract with a competitive salary and comprehensive benefits package. The location of the position has not been determined yet, but would either be in one of the project countries or based at our headquarters in The Netherlands.
We offer a challenging work environment, opportunities to lead and innovate, and a commitment to growing your skills in a fulfilling and diverse working environment. Our Energy sector staff benefit from an internal global network of Energy experts. For more information, please visit our website: www.snv.org
