The Green Recovery and road to net zero are driving new and exciting career opportunities within the energy sector. Our future workforce must develop the right skills to succeed in a rapidly changing sector, with new technologies and job roles constantly emerging.

Students and young professionals will be the energy leaders of tomorrow, progressing our energy transition at a pivotal time. The Energy Institute London and Home Counties Young Professionals Network (YPN) is excited to showcase just some of the pathways and options available to the future workforce, through our virtual Skills of the Future Event series!

Over two days, we will be holding the following four events:

  • Skills of the Future Kick-off (Monday 25th October, 09:00 – 10:00).

An introduction to the event from the London and Home Counties YPN, context-setting and a presentation on the Energy Barometer report.

  • Pathways into the Energy Sector (Monday 25th October, 13:00 – 14:30).

A discussion on the diverse range of roles available in the energy sector, with a speaker round table debunking common energy career misconceptions.
