Syzygy, set up in 2010, is one of the UK’s most successful specialist consultants in the Renewable Energy and Greentech sector; advising some of the biggest names in UK and European real estate helping them deliver and operate relevant, impactful renewable energy and Greentech projects.

We are looking to find a brilliant, team-focused Technical Asset Manager with a passion for the low carbon sector to join us and help ensure the smooth operation and reporting for a growing portfolio of embedded renewable energy and EV Car Charging assets.

It’s likely you have a few years’ experience within the Solar PV industry, ideally within the Commercial & Industrial sector.
