Country Lead Manager, Southern Africa Energy Program

Engility Corporation, building on IRG’s legacy in international development, is currently seeking a Country Lead Manager for an anticipated USAID-funded Power Reforms project in Southern Africa Region. The Southern Africa Energy Program (SAEP) aims to increase electricity availability and access in the region by facilitating transactions and strengthening the enabling environment for private-sector investment in power, with a focus on clean energy. By ameliorating key constraints to investment—weak regulation, planning and procurement, commercially unviable utilities, lack of locally demonstrated clean energy technologies and practices, and insufficient human and institutional capacity—in 2-3 politically committed countries, SAEP will help create much needed examples of success on the ground and raise regional benchmarks of performance.
Specific activities include:
  • Improved Regulation, Planning and Procurement for Energy;
  • Improved Commercial Viability of Utilities;
  • Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Technologies and Practices Locally Demonstrated and Scaled;
  • Increased Human and Institutional Capacity.

  • High level facilitation, coordination and advocacy of reforms process with the host government authorities;
  • Coordination of efforts of local and international experts in the targeted country;
  • Participation and support to high-level governmental and inter-agency working groups on energy policy, planning, and regulation;
  • Participation and facilitation of the capacity building efforts aimed at improving legal and regulatory framework for clean energy investments;
  • Managing local team of experts and providing organizational support for all project activities in the targeted country
This is a contingent position based on funding from the customer.
  • Advanced degree in an energy related field such as engineering, policy, business, finance, economics or a similar field.
  • At least 10 years of experience in energy sector on developing energy policy and regulatory framework.
