Looking for a career in the energy sector that will actively help the environment?

This is a rare opportunity to join a company that is dedicated to improving the energy infrastructure in mainland China, while actively working towards making the world a cleaner and greener place.

Roaring 40s, a renewable energy development company that is a joint venture between China Light and Power and Hydro Tasmania is looking for a business development manager to join its Hong Kong team as it capitalises on China and Asia's focus on developing clean and environmentally friendly electricity.

'This is a good career move,' said Jamie Turnough, manager at Hays Engineering, energy and resources, which is handling the search. 'There is a big push with renewed energy and enthusiasm for renewable power and [it's] certainly going to be a fast developing industry to work in over the next decade.'

With at least five years of experience in the energy sector, the ideal candidate would be a seasoned business development professional with past exposure to the Chinese or Asian markets.

Tertiary qualifications in engineering or finance, experience with foreign joint ventures and financing and an understanding of mainland law relating to joint ventures and development is a must.

'Basically the challenge of the role is to keep driving the renewable message into China, which up until recently has lagged behind countries such as Australia and Britain in the implementation of renewable technologies,' he said.
