The Water Programme

The Water Programme’s goal is to increase job creation and investment into water technology and services, and to improve water resource productivity. We achieve this through a number of different activities: we perform demand creation activities (such as supporting businesses to become more water efficient and resilient); we provide support to the water sector (such as collecting and disseminating market intelligence and supporting innovation and entrepreneurship); and we support improvements in resource productivity (through, for example, our analytical work into the economic impacts of water availability).

Job Description

The Senior Water Analyst role is predominantly about building and maintaining key relationships between actors across the value chain, growing our understanding of the space, identifying and unlocking barriers to investments and, most importantly, providing key industry players with valuable and objective market insights - all of which aligns itself with GreenCape’s mandate of unlocking investment opportunities and creating jobs. This will be achieved through meeting with with various industry players, participating in industry events and a variety of government forums, and through contributing to relevant sector projects and research reference groups.

The Senior Water Analyst will gather and disseminate information required by investors to make informed investment decisions. The Senior Water Analyst needs to possess the analytical skills required to assess the market potential that these opportunities represent, and to prioritise time and effort towards high-potential opportunities.

The Senior Water Analyst falls within GreenCape’s Water and Sustainable Agriculture Programme and the Analyst will report directly to the Programme Lead. This role will focus on our work across South Africa, which will include the work in Mpumalanga and the capacitation of the Mpumalanga Green Cluster Agency, and therefore the successful candidate must be willing to travel locally.
