The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) is seeking to hire Principal Fund Manager, Renewable District Energy, to be based in Belgrade, Serbia. The deadline to apply is September 19.

Reporting to the Deputy Head of Municipal and Environmental Infrastructure and in close collaboration with the respective sector teams, including the Energy Efficiency and Climate Change team, the Principal Manager contributes to the development and management of the Renewable District Energy in the Western Balkans Fund, the vacancy announcement reads.

The Government of Austria (the donor) has provided EUR 4 million to establish the fund. The fund is aimed at facilitating the development of Renewable District Energy projects by providing the policy and technical support needed for investment origination and implementation.

The main objective of the Manager is to support EBRD’s efforts to manage the allocation and implementation of the Fund resources, to ensure coordination between the respective sector teams on the activities of the fund, to support the delivery of integrated approaches, and to maintain the communication with the donor and other relevant stakeholders (e.g. Energy Community Secretariat).

In this light, it is expected that the Manager will provide a direct oversight function of the technical cooperation, ensuring they meet the sector team requirements while remaining within the remit of the fund, and subsequently supporting collaboration with the relevant Operation Leaders for any related investments to ensure the fund achieves the underlying project requirements, as necessary. They will also do the operational reporting of the projects under the fund to the donor.

Responsibilities include identifying investment projects that can benefit from policy and technical support under the fund, as well as liaising closely with the Energy Community Secretariat to ensure alignment of assignments with EU energy legislation and to support countries efforts to meet their Renewable Energy Targets and their Energy Efficiency Targets from the Energy Community Treaty Obligations, according to the announcement.
