The Energy Institute (EI) is the chartered professional membership body bringing global energy expertise together. Its ambition is that energy and its critical role in our world, is better understood, managed and valued.

The Energy Institute provides the secretariat and supports the ongoing work for the offshore and onshore wind health and safety organisations G+ and SafetyOn, bringing together business leaders, health and safety experts and organisations operating in the offshore and onshore wind industry to drive good practice and promote world-class safety performance across the sector.

We are looking to recruit a project manager with interests in health and safety to support our programme of research and good practice development in offshore and onshore wind. You will engage with stakeholders from industry, regulators and consultancies. A key requirement is excellent technical writing skills to develop good practice guidance, ensure timely delivery of high-quality technical publications and manage technical workstreams in offshore and onshore wind.

Excellent technical writing skills, organisational and administrative 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 offshore/onshore wind industry and experience in developing technical guidance and presentation would be advantageous but are not essential.
