Wind Industry Overview

The wind energy industry has experienced rapid growth in the past decade. As wind energy continues growing in popularity, the construction of new wind farms will inevitably increase. Currently, most of the jobs in the wind sector are within manufacturing, followed by construction, operations, management, and maintenance. However, as new wind farms come online and existing sites are improved, and manufacturers take advantage of returns to scale, the other sectors also are likely to experience rapid growth.

One of the most popular jobs roles in the wind industry is a wind turbine technician. They are responsible for the maintenance and repairing of onshore and offshore turbines. Typical duties of a turbine technician include fitting electrical, mechanical, and hydraulic equipment, testing turbine blades and control systems, regular inspections, safety and maintenance work.

Wind industry salaries are dependent on experience, the role and which sector of the industry you are working in. A wind turbine technician working on an offshore installation will typically have a higher salary than on an onshore wind farm. A newly trained wind turbine technician can earn in the region of £20,000, but earnings can easily exceed £40,000 depending on experience and location. Senior-level wind turbine engineers can expect upwards of £80,000. Self-employed wind turbine engineers can define their day rates. Mechanical and electrical engineering roles tend to start between £28,000 to £34,000, and project management roles typically average at £52,000.

Overall employment in the UK offshore wind industry for full-time in-direct and direct employees currently stands at approximately 26,000. Employment in the onshore wind industry has stayed relatively stable, with 4,400 full-time employees recorded for the same period. Studies predict an accelerated surge in offshore wind industry jobs, with estimates predicting over 69,000 jobs generated by 2026. Over 80% of offshore wind jobs are situated outside London and the southeast. Scotland has the highest number (30%), followed by Yorkshire and the Humber (15%), the northeast (10%) and eastern England (10%). The range of jobs expected to increase in the next few years include engineers, project managers, manufacturers, turbine technicians, welders, divers, boat crews and pilots. Most of these jobs are technical or managerial positions and require skilled professionals. The UK offshore wind industry is actively looking for new talent in electrical and civil engineering, project management, surveying, data analysis and digital.
