  • Developing a network of industry contacts, to keep up to date with trends and thinking.

In time, we will support you to focus on the areas where your skills and interests best fit together with business needs. We see this as the best way to help you develop your consulting career in this rapidly growing market.

About you

We are keen to hear from you if you are located within, or have good working knowledge of the European, US or east Asian offshore wind regional markets.

  • A good degree, ideally in mechanical, civil or electrical engineering, physics, natural science, mathematics, data science or economics or a masters in renewable energy
  • Ideally some relevant professional experience working in industry but this is not essential as we recruit for potential

  • Confidence in your ability and talent as a high performer, and

What is important to us is to understand your interests, motivations and relative capability in different areas. We are talent-led and will explore with the strongest candidates how best to involve them within our team, to make the most difference to those we serve.
