  • Synthesize research and lessons learned to influence key stakeholders
  • Collaborate with the Country Manager and across all levels of the SEED team to support project selection and planning, and to develop the organization’s expertise and reputation in energy systems in Nigeria
  • Build RMI’s network and identify new projects, and shape and deliver collaborative efforts with governments, development partners, and the private sector in sub-Saharan Africa
  • Serve as a subject matter expert and thought leader to develop innovative approaches for holistic energy system development, new business models for energy and energy service providers, and respectfully challenge current approaches
  • Identify and shape specific program initiatives and projects, likely in combination with other senior professionals, focusing on topics such as national-level energy planning, minigrid cost reduction, energy efficiency for increased access, and targeted capacity building
  • Demonstrate organizational leadership, helping set a culture of impact, accountability, and entrepreneurship
  • Travel up to 25% of the time, including occasional travel within sub-Saharan Africa and to RMI’s offices in the United States
Supervisory Responsibilities:
  • Initially an independent contributor, with potential expansion to supervise local staff.
Minimum Qualifications
  • Undergraduate Degree from a well-respected university
  • Multiple years of energy work experience with an emphasis on energy efficiency and renewable energy
  • Independent work style, comfortable self-managing multiple priorities and workstreams concurrently, with the ability to drive projects forward despite ambiguity
  • Proven track-record of delivering against deadlines and reliably delivering outcomes
  • Excellent interpersonal communication abilities in written, verbal, and presentation forms, demonstrating humble confidence
  • Proficient with Microsoft Office, including experience writing reports, building decks, and developing spreadsheet models
