Business Impact Team

Job Description

Our projects are engineering based with a strong focus on local ownership by our partner organisations. The successful completion of our projects is not only driven by the quality of our engineering skills, but also on our
experience with the non-technical elements of a project. Our current projects vary from rural electrification and water management to the construction of a local cinema.

Each project involves a business case that we develop together with our local partners. Besides we look into the financial, institutional, ecological, technical and social sustainability of a project. The Business Impact Team supports the project teams and local partners in the non-technical aspects of our projects with a focus on the
development of business / social models and financing mechanisms.
