Tens of jobs up for grabs as Kenya regulatory body announces vacancies

Successful applicants will be laughing all the way to the bank since energy sector workers are some of the best paid in the country.

The energy regulator announced yesterday that it is seeking experts in renewable energy, electricity, petroleum and gas, environmental, health and safety managers, alongside drivers and office assistants.

“We need a technical team to license projects and enforce our regulations in the planned regional offices,” said ERC acting director-general Pavel Oimeke.

Up to 60 jobs are up for grabs at the energy regulatory commission and Interested Kenyans have been urged to apply.

Qualified applicants will serve in ERC county five regional offices in Kisumu, Mombasa, Eldoret, Nyeri and Marsabit for licensing of projects and supervision.

Mr Oimeke said the additional offices have been influenced by ERC commitment to strengthen its role in providing advisory and oversight services, including upping surveillance on rising cases of fuel adulteration and illegal refilling of cooking gas.

“We want to be pro-active not reactive as has been the case whenever issues have come up,” he said.

The decentralisation of the agency’s roles, may also been influenced by the rising power projects in counties, largely solar parks and wind farms.

It is also part of the ERC’s five-year strategic management plan running up to 2022.

Successful applicants will be laughing all the way to the bank since  energy sector workers are some of the best paid in the country.

According to Economic Survey 2017, they are the second best paid employees in the country, making an average of Sh121,998 a month , behind those in financial sector.
