Employment Type Regular Employee (Full-Time)

WiseEnergy is a trusted and established solar asset manager, offering all the services clients require to manage and optimise large-scale solar plants, from development and construction through to long-term operational asset management. We have an exciting opportunity for an experienced, passionate finance professional to support in the audit of assets managed on behalf of one of our most important clients. 


The role demands strong accounting and audit capabilities, and exceptional stakeholder management.
