Who we’re looking for:

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.

Who we are:

Here at the Energy Institute (EI) we endeavour to find talent that will live and breathe our values. We pride ourselves on our values and show this through ensuring that we are inclusive by treating each other with care and respect. Our goal is to continually build trust through open and professional collaboration within all areas of the EI throughout employee’s own teams and the business. At the centre of all that we do here at the EI, we always strive to exude our desire of being passionate about making a difference not only within our own organisation but within the energy sector as a whole.

We are a global, independent network of professionals spanning the world of energy, convening and facilitating debate, championing evidence and sharing fresh ideas.

Energy professionals of all ages, genders, backgrounds, and disciplines look to us for the knowledge, skills and good practice they need to pursue impactful careers in this vital, fast-evolving field.

What you’ll do:

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 knowledge, experience, and qualifications you need:

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.
