Job Description

Development & Fundraising – Internship (WTS Energy)

Hey there, future colleague!

WTS Energy is a leading staffing service provider for the energy transition worldwide. As part of this industry, you get to experience where the wheel meets the road in the needed Energy operations and human activities to achieve climate mitigation and social sustainability. We have been developing an international network for 20 years which has given us perspective to see how the energy industry practices are having more relevance in social and environmentally friendly practices. Therefore, we are invested in trusting young talent to propose and empower the new generations that face the challenges of the future. Do you have what it takes?

Education and Development

One of our offices is located in Kenya, where exciting developments are currently taking place. We are actively involved in East Africa’s energy transition, promoting a leap forward to full industrialization powered by renewable energy. How do we practically do that? Despite its immense potential, renewable energy is still emerging compared to conventional sources, creating opportunity for skilled professionals. This gap calls for upskilling and retraining those with traditional degrees or informal experience to tap into exciting new job opportunities and drive sustainable development in their communities and the wider African region.

Last year, we partnered with international development organizations and the educational public sector of Kenya to advance this mission. These initiatives are now being carried out under the WTS Foundation.

The WTS Foundation core focus is on: 

• Developing and deliver training in Renewable Energy
• Establishing knowledge hubs for Renewable Energy technology and skills
• Fostering communities that actively engage with these hubs
• Improving job conditions through international opportunities in renewable energy

Where does an internship program fit in our vision? A development & fundraising intern should become a bridge and the best between both worlds.
We expect from you:

  1. Prospect identification and fundraising for current projects in training in renewable energy.
  2. Relationships development with multiple stakeholders from development, private and public sector energy industry in Europe and (east) Africa.
  3. Identity, research and convene other existing projects that have aligned objectives.
  4. Write log frames, grant proposals and review applications weekly.

But if there is anything you should be aware of from the get-go is that at WTS, it is best to expect the unexpected. No matter your job title, your work with us will be very dynamic.
