“Your Career In Offshore Wind” highlights the wide variety of jobs on offer to young people in what is considered to be a growing industry in planning, building and operating projects.
RenewableUK claim potential roles within the sector include designers, engineers, turbine technicians, economists, investment analysts, environmental scientists, geophysicists and oceanographers.
Maf Smith, RenewableUK’s deputy chief executive, said: “This is a dynamic, innovative industry with plenty of opportunities for people looking for well-paid, long term jobs.
“We’re a young sector looking to attract enthusiastic, hard-working people who care about what they do, and want to make a difference by helping to clean up the way we generate power.
“The guide we’re publishing today will help them along that career path.”
The guide will be available at the Orsted Skills Hub at RenewableUK’s event in Manchester Central.
