Aside from those two key aspects of her role, Blanche also ensures that we have smooth communication with all our landowners and that procurement throughout the business is well-managed. She’s the first person most of our clients and suppliers communicate with when they contact G7 and is a vital member of the team.

Careers at G7

Internship Programmes:

The G7 internship program involves on-the-job training and hopefully time spent working with G7, will inspire young interns with the same passion that we have for renewable energy. Depending on specific interests and skills, G7 can offer the chance to gain unique exposure to a wide range of activities and some of the latest advances in the field of renewable energies.

We regularly take on interns, which we see as a great opportunity for future generations to develop their skills and gain significant work experience. Our internship program is aimed at undergraduate, graduate, postgraduate students, as well as people looking to change career paths. Some of them have now joined our organisation on a permanent basis.
