Water, oil, gas and waste all come under the banner of the energy industry, which involves the generation, production and distribution of sources of energy. More specifically, jobs in energy (including water, oil, gas and waste) in Myanmar are classified as natural resource management, or environmental management. Sustainable development lies at the intersection of economic, environmental and social causes, and the kinds of jobs found in energy, water, oil, gas and waste may be in engineering, biology, economics or legislation, to name a few.
Much reform is required in the industry in Myanmar as, like in many other sectors, Myanmar is perceived to be somewhat behind. People with skills in collection, analysis, interpretation and understanding of data in relation to environmental pollution are in high demand in government, corporations, NGO’s and non-profit organisations. The objective is to identify, control, prevent and minimise all adverse impacts on the environment (for example emission control and pollution prevention). It is necessary to establish factories for treatment of waste and emissions which contain toxic and hazardous substances.
Some examples of jobs in the energy industry (including water, oil, gas and waste) include project managers, finance directors, plant technicians, logistics managers, engineering managers, sales team members, auditors, accountants, interpreters, exploration geologists, lawyers, government relations coordinators, IT managers, and sustainability managers to name a few, but the list goes on.
The energy sector, like most sectors in Myanmar is in need of reform and development. As the country has been closed off for many years, modern methods have not always been introduced, but as Myanmar is very rich in natural resources the energy and utilities sector is slowly becoming one of the driving industries in the country. An abundance of research needs to be done and plans implemented to move Myanmar forward.
Various jobs are available in government, NGO and nonprofit as well as corporations. It may have been mentioned before that the industry lies at the intersection of economic, social and environmental issues. The qualifications one requires to work in the industry is somewhat dependant on the position they are seeking. To work as an engineer, researcher, scientist, analyst, or lawyer, a relevant college degree is required. It is also possible to work in Human Resources, or the accounting department for which, even though a degree is required it is possible to transfer from other industries. Positions in the administrative function do not necessarily require a degree, but a command of the English language and computer skills are required. As much of the industry relies on foreign investment there are also positions for translators and interpreters, for which a degree is not necessarily required but fluency in at least two languages is required.
There are also an abundance of labour intensive jobs in the energy industry, for example working on off shore oil exploration or large infrastructure projects in regional areas.
