Technical Manager – Solar PV Asset Management – Solar PV, Hyderabad, India. Competitive package, negotiable based on experience and expertise.
The opportunity

This is a great opportunity to help one of Europe’s most successful solar asset management operations set up a new operations centre in Hyderabad, India.
The firm currently manages the assets of a huge European solar PV portfolio from centres in Italy and the UK and is now expanding to support clients locally in the Indian solar PV market.

The role

We are looking for an ambitious, hardworking, high calibre solar PV engineer with around 3-5 years’ experience in large scale (M.W size) solar PV to take a lead role in the provision of asset management services to Indian based solar PV projects.
You’ll be responsible for the technical optimisation of clients’ operational solar portfolios, so the role will involve lots of performance analysis and reporting, it’s mainly office based work with some requirement to visit sites when necessary.
You’ll liaise regularly with internal staff members as well as third party companies including the local JV partner and operations and maintenance providers.
You’ll have the full backing of a highly experienced international team in the UK, but initially you’ll be a key part of the small local team so the ability to work independently is important. 
There will be plenty of opportunity to develop, accept more responsibility to hire additional team members and potentially even to manage the centre and the staff that work there.
You’ll very likely be required to visit the UK for initial induction and training.

If you’ve previously worked in the UK solar market, or for an international firm in the India solar sector, then that would be a real advantage.
You’re ambitious to develop your career in a technical and managerial capacity and happy to work hard to demonstrate your commitment.
As well as technical skills, it will be helpful to have strong commercial understanding too.
