Solar Project Manager

Our client is a world leading management and engineering consultancy who employs over 15,000 people and has a global reach in 6 continents. Their network of 180 principal offices in over 100 countries gives them local market insight supported by world class expertise to achieve excellence for every client.

They are significantly expanding their Tokyo base owing to increased work in our Japan solar business, so they are now looking for a number of new staff to join the team to support new and existing projects in Japan and throughout South East Asia.


As a project manager you will oversee projects and work as an advisor on technical and contractual issues to developers/owners and financiers of independent power projects (IPP) with particular experience on power purchase agreements (PPA) and EPC contracts.

You will have the responsibility for delivering solar energy projects across Japan, drawing upon local resources and from across the global renewable energy team.


Experience in the following would be desirable:

  • Power generation sector (ideally solar energy)
  • Technical specification and evaluation
  • Due diligence
  • Construction monitoring
  • Operational monitoring of power plants

Candidate should be prepared to undertake short visits within the south east Asia region for project assignments and clients and contractors meetings at short notice as required. Experience specifically in Japan is a key requirement. An innovative approach is essential to be successful in this role, together with a flexible attitude and a willingness to work as part of a multidisciplinary and multinational team.

If this sounds interesting to you and you meet the requirements, please contact Marina Moya for further details.

We look forward to receiving your application.
