Technical Officer - Onshore Wind

The EI is looking to recruit a new Technical Officer to primarily assist in co-ordinating and supporting delivery of the Onshore Wind Health & Safety Organisation (SafetyOn) work programme.

Salary up to £26,000 plus benefits, negotiable based on experience

The Energy Institute (EI) is the chartered professional membership body bringing global energy expertise together. We gather and share essential knowledge about energy, the skills that are helping us use it more wisely, and the good practice that keeps it safe and secure.

We are looking to provide some additional support to the Technical Team by recruiting a new Technical Officer. The Technical Team develops codes of practice, specifications, and good practice for the energy industry. Key areas of work are within health, safety, asset integrity, the environment, and fuels and fuel handling in the oil and gas, offshore wind and thermal power generation sectors.

The position will primarily assist in co-ordinating and supporting delivery of the Onshore Wind Health & Safety Organisation (SafetyOn) work programme to improve H&S performance in the onshore wind industry as well as collating, analysing and presenting H&S incident data submitted by members of the SafetyOn. The role also includes the support of other activities of EI technical committees in the delivery of the wider technical programme, and editing/preparing technical material for publication.

Excellent organisational, administrative, and data analysis skills are essential, as is the ability to communicate well, including with senior representatives within the energy industry, as well as excellent customer/client service skills.

The ideal candidate will be a highly motivated self-starter who demonstrates initiative and can work with a minimum of supervision. A science, or engineering based degree, knowledge of the onshore wind industry and experience of data analysis and presentation would be advantageous but are not essential.
