Expert en structuration d’entreprise

Recruitment of a company structuring expert

Created in 2010, COSEER (Compagnie Sahelienne en Energie Renewable) is a one-person, social, innovative company, a pioneer in renewable energy. Based in Dakar, it was founded by Mr Abdoulaye BA, a qualified engineer in Renewable Energy & Environmental Techniques.

COSEER acts as a project developer, design office (EPC – Engineering, Procurement and Construction) offering its own engineering solutions in accordance with customer requests, and as a rural electrification operator.

COSEER was tasked by ASER with managing 66 mini solar power plants (MCS) in the regions of Matam and Tambacounda. COSEER also wishes to develop an activity in the sale and installation of individual solar equipment.

To carry out these two activities, COSEER needs to strengthen itself in terms of human resources and internal organization. To achieve this, COSEER requested the support of its partners, in particular ADA, a Luxembourg NGO, with which a three-year support project was formulated.

The implementation of this project provides for the recruitment of an expert in business structuring to provide full-time support to the management of COSEER for a period of 12 months (Year 1), then part-time for a period of 12 months (Year 2), with the prospect of a permanent contract.

The expert will work directly with the COSEER Partnerships Manager.
