• Deliver consultancy projects to clients, including client relationship management, project management, research, analysis and reporting
• Engage with industry to stay up to date with latest information, and gain insight into current trends and thinking
• Undertake desk-based research into the technology, market and supply chain of the industries we serve
• Develop in-house tools and keep our knowledge management systems up to date, and
• Work closely with other members of the team in a supportive, collaborative and dynamic working culture.

About you

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

• A desire to bring direct offshore wind operational experience into the consultancy world, ensuring both we and our clients benefit from your experience
• At least four years’ offshore wind operations provision including involvement in strategic decisions and leading technical teams
• Experience of offshore planning and logistics
• Excellent writing skills to communicate clearly and accurately in written documents
• Flexibility, focus and a hunger to learn combined with confidence in your ability and talent, and
• A vibrant interest in the industries we serve 

Our preferred candidate will also have most of the following:

• A degree, ideally in mechanical, civil or electrical engineering, physics, natural science, mathematics, business or economics, or further relevant professional experience
• Project management capability experience, including managing client relationships
• An enjoyment of meeting and talking with new people and be able to communicate effectively in person with a wide range of stakeholders
• A highly logical mind, to analyse situations, identify improvements and structure facts into coherent arguments
• Initiative and self-sufficiency to work in a small team
• An aptitude for order, accuracy, efficiency and quality so that you can deliver to our high standards
• The ability to prioritise a busy and varied schedule and juggle different demands on your time

We recognise that no-one will have a similar level of capability across all these areas. 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. We are keen to meet people with varied backgrounds - our view is the more inclusive we are, the better our work will be. We want to build teams which represent a variety of experiences, perspectives and skills, and we recognise talent on the basis of merit and potential.
