Much has been said of the Malta-Italy Gas Pipeline Interconnection Project. On everyone’s minds and mouths for the past couple of years, the project will see the island form finally being connected to the European Gas Network Grid. Now, you too can be part of this monumental project.
Set to be operational by the year 2024, the pipeline will stretch over a span of 159 kilometres, connecting Delimara with the Sicilian port-city of Gela. The plan is to construct the project within a timeframe of 24 to 36 months, and that of course needs an energetic team of the best professionals.
The project is an essential one on both a national and an international level, being listed as one of the EU’s Projects of Common Interest for three consecutive times. Now in its permitting phase, the Energy & Water Agency is looking for a more specific workforce, with the following roles currently calling out your name.
One Policy Officer:
Project Management – Gas Pipeline
3-year definite contract
The Policy Officer will assist the Senior Project Manager in the management of the pipeline. That means you may need to work under pressure, unsupervised, and potentially even after-hours.
Policy Officers will need to participate in meetings (both in Malta and abroad), while undertaking any other task assigned by the Senior Project Manager or the Chief Executive Officer. For a full list of duties connected to the Policy Officer role, check here.
To fill in this vacancy, you’re required to have an MQF Level 6 in the field of Engineering, Science, Economics, Accounts, Business Administration or related discipline, along with a minimum of a one-year experience in the above.
Two Policy Officers:
Engineering – Gas Pipeline
3-year definite contract
Whereas the previous role was all about the management of the pipeline, this role is more focused on the technical implementation of the behemoth project. The same expectations apply to this important job, but some duties might shift accordingly.
For example, these two policy officers would be required to participate in technical workshops and stakeholder events, along with supporting the general administration of the project.
Qualifications that are required for this role are the same as above, with it being a three-year definite contract subject to a probationary period of six months.
All contracts come with competitive financial packages, and applications will be acknowledged and treated in strict confidence. The deadline for applications is 18th May, and full details can be found here.
